Mayor Adams is accused of altering a recent photo of a deceased officer to make him appear decades older

While claiming to have had the photos for decades, Mayor Eric Adams has been charged with altering a recently produced photograph of a police officer slain in the line of duty to make it appear much older.

A few months after assuming office, Adams brought up the image at a press conference to honor the passing of NYPD officers Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora in January 2022.

The NY Times claims that Adams gave two workers the task of printing out a picture of murdered NYPD officer Robert Venable, which they then stained with coffee to give it a worn-out appearance.

In his first month in office last year, the mayor informed the media that he “still thinks about Robert” and has kept the officer’s photo in his wallet.

HW stated, “I keep a picture of Robert in my wallet,” adding that he still frequently thought about his friend’s 1987 slaying.

Employees at City Hall reportedly received instructions to reproduce a worn-looking photo of Officer Venable just days after Adams first mentioned the deceased officer in public last year.

According to reports, an employee printed a black-and-white image of the cop from Google and drank coffee while doing so.

According to the Times, two former City Hall aides who wish to remain nameless claimed that they were made aware of the altered photo last year.

After a Times reporter asked to see the picture last year, the mayor posed for the camera holding it.

The story has been denounced by Adams’ press secretary, Fabien Levy, as a “campaign to paint the mayor as a liar.”

In a statement last week, he said, “The Times’ attempts to attack the mayor here would be laughable if it were not so utterly offensive.”
