Lhota campaign may have paid for Bill De Blasio atheist smear

Five sound trucks promoting Joe Lhota cruised the city before the recent mayoral election, saying, among other things, “Bill de Blasio says he doesn’t believe in churches — and he doesn’t believe in God either,” reports the NY Daily News.

Joe Lhota told reporters at the NY Daily News that he did not authorize the sound trucks, which appeared to be organized by Dany Esquilin, who paid $2,000 for the campaign. However, the Daily News reported that Campaign Finance Disclosures showed that Team Lhota had paid one Dany Esquilin more than $26,000 in two payments last month.
