The mayoral candidate who often calls New York a tale of two cities has a personal tale of three names.
Most New Yorkers have come to know Bill de Blasio as the Democratic candidate with the affable family, including a teenage son who has been featured in campaign ads.
Left unsaid in the candidates official biography is that Bill de Blasio is his third legal name.
The man who could become the citys 109th mayor was born Warren Wilhelm Jr. on May 8, 1961, in Manhattan, his birth certificate shows.
In 1983, fresh out of New York University, he petitioned a Manhattan judge to formally change his name to Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm, according to legal records.
And in December 2001 he petitioned a judge in Brooklyn to formally change his name again, this time to Bill de Blasio.
In recent years the candidate has, at times, talked about the evolution of his name, saying it reflected a personal journey that involved his parents divorce and an identification with his mothers family, the de Blasios.
A Daily News examination of court records and other public documents provided new details of this evolution. However, the de Blasio campaign declined to answer a series of questions submitted by The News about the name changes. The News also contacted de Blasios older brother, Steven Wilhelm, 65, a journalist in Seattle, to ask about his siblings identities. I need to check with the campaign, Wilhelm said.
Obviously, as far as De Blasio is concerned, much better politically in New York City to come across as an Italian than a German named "Wilhelm." Nonetheless, the "Bill" is undoubtedly a remnant of the original "Wilhelm." Not too sure about how strong his alleged Italian roots really are, though.
the First Impostor has had many names, many citizenships,
many SS numbers, many fake documents and not one real,
many lies, much treason, and not one gram of accountability.
OK, So? We should be getting used to such multiple identities of our elected officials, just look at Barry, or whatever his name is.
Took the words out of my mouth. The many names that Ulyanov, Djugashvili and Bronstein went through before they settled on Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky were remarkable.
And don’t forget Hillary Rodham-Clinton.
Carlos Danger was already taken.....
Is one of them Bill de Danger?
Is one of them Carlos Danger?
Dinna forget schicklgruber.
Probably voted in each of the names like a good DemocRAT.
Lest we forget - Soetoro, Dunham, 0bama - did I miss any?
Who knows, could it be that the man currently named "Bill DiBlasio" is descended from German royalty? If you have ambitions of running for public office as a far leftist, it's best to disguise that as much as possible. That would be a good reason in and of itself for a name change.
