The War on Women, Democrat style.
Authorities are investigating whether the woman who accused lawyer Sanford Rubenstein of rape was drugged while visiting his posh penthouse, The Post has learned.
“They’re testing her blood to see if there were any drugs in her system, because she doesn’t know what happened and doesn’t know why she kept passing out [there],” a law-enforcement source said Tuesday. “Even the next morning, she was still passing out. She passed out in [Rubenstein’s] limo on the way home.’’
The 42-year-old woman — a top official in the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network — told cops she had two drinks at last week’s star-studded 60th birthday party for Sharpton, which was also attended by longtime Sharpton pal Rubenstein.
She said she downed two more drinks after arriving at Rubenstein’s apartment with the legal eagle and a female friend, who left before she was allegedly attacked while passed out, sources said.
Meanwhile, if you’re actually concerned with fighting crime in New York City, don’t bother calling the mayor. He’s busy with his boss.
The city’s five district attorneys have been desperately trying to get a sit down with Mayor de Blasio for months but hizzoner has blown them off while holding multiple meetings with Al Sharpton, The Post has learned.
Bronx DA Robert Johnson sent an email to the mayor’s office on behalf of the group and urged him to meet with them to discuss issues involving their budgets and public safety, sources said.
“I ask that, at your convenience, you meet with me and my colleagues from Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan and Brooklyn,” reads the email sent from Johnson on March 11. “We feel that we are an important part of the City’s efforts to provide public safety.”
Johnson also noted the mayor’s “tight” schedule, but said he hoped to give de Blasio a closer look at the “prosecution and prevention efforts” coming from the five DA offices.
The mayor’s office responded with an automatic reply from its director of scheduling that said it would take “approximately two weeks” to process the request.
Sources inside the district attorneys’ offices said they were shocked when City Hall gave them the silent treatment.
“It was surprising that we didn’t hear back from anybody,” said a source in one of the DA offices.
They’re shocked a hard left agitator would be meeting with a hard left agitator? How naive.
