A top aide to Bill de Blasio’s wife who lives with her convicted killer boyfriend is taking a leave of absence after her son was arrested for trespassing.
Rachel Noerdlinger, 44, is the chief of staff to the New York Mayor’s First Lady Chirlane McCray.
On Monday she announced she would be taking a leave of absence after her 17-year-old son Khari was arrested for allegedly trespassing in a building which is known as a drug hot spot in Washington Heights, Manhattan, at the weekend.
He was apprehended with three friends, two of which had small amounts of marijuana on them, law enforcement sources said.
The leave from her $170,000 a year role is unpaid, according to a City Hall source, reports the New York Post. It wasn’t immediately clear when or if Noerdlinger would return.
