These two stories focus on the activities of Deputy New York City Mayor Daniel Doctoroff and his campaign to bring the Olympics to New York. In the "Deputy Mayor" story, newly elected mayor Bloomberg got Doctoroff to hit up corporations that do business with the city to raise money for the Olympics project. This even though a conflict of interest ruling should have prevented him from those activities. "Market-Rate Giveaway" is about a sweetheart deal handed to a friend of Doctoroff's, Steve Ross and his business Related Companies, as part of the Olympics project. That deal would allow Ross to replace the Bronx produce market with a new mall, putting thousands of market workers out of a job.
