These de Blasio donors wound up getting outcomes they sought

Mayor de Blasio has said donors did not get special treatment from the city.

Moishe Indig, a leader of the religious Jewish Satmar group, hosted a fund-raiser for de Blasio in 2013, his campaign said at the time. Prosecutors later investigated whether that event was connected to the lifting of an order to vacate a Hasidic school.

Seven developers with properties along the proposed route of a Brooklyn-Queens streetcar, donated a combined $ 245,000 to Campaign for One New York. Not long after that donation, the mayor announced his support for the trolley. Those owners include:
