House Democrats Slam Bloomberg Over NYPD Muslim Spying Program

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — House Democrats are criticizing New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg for what they called his “underhanded and unprofessional” response to criticism of the New York Police Department’s spying programs.

The Associated Press has reported that the NYPD spied on Muslims neighborhoods, using informants and undercover officers in mosques and businesses in New York and New Jersey. Police documented details of sermons, even when they were innocuous, and infiltrated Muslim college groups.
