Dear Editor:

If the Olympics had an event for stupidity, our mayor would win a gold medal.

Bill de Blasio topped off a string of dumb decisions by hiring and defending a key staffer who's lived with a convicted killer and drug dealer for the past six years - a thug who called cops "pigs" on Facebook.

"You don't fire someone for something her boyfriend said," de Blasio told reporters. Wrong, you fire her if she's a $170,000 per year city staffer responsible for improving police community relations, and who failed to mention her criminal companion in a Department of Investigation background check.

Bumbling Bill fired his campaign press secretary for living with Elliott Spitzer, but client No. 9 didn't
have a 20-year rap sheet. Rachel Nordlinger also lied about her child's health to get an exemption from a requirement that all city employees live in New York.

She claimed her 17-year-old son needs medical treatment for severe injuries, requiring her to live in New Jersey. Really? Then how does her injured son play linebacker for his high school's football team, a fact disclosed by the Post.
Keeping her on the payroll insults taxpayers, police and all honest city employees. If de Blasio doesn't fire her, voters must deny him a second term in office.
