There’s a surreality to this mayoral election beyond OIB moments and this certainly is an OIB moment–when a lead federal investigator who sent Joe Ganim to the joint is now supporting his comeback for mayor. And a whole bunch of city cops as well.

“Everybody deserves a second chance,” said Adams, who retired from the bureau not long after wrapping up the corruption probe that toppled Ganim in 2003.
And believe it or not, Adams is only one member of a new group that could be called “Law Enforcement for Ganim.”
