Movin’ on out: De Blasio booting Founding Father Jefferson from City Hall


Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has just three months left in office, is quietly banishing a statue of Founding Father Thomas Jefferson from City Hall’s council chambers — where it has resided for the past 187 years, The Post has learned.
