Bill de Blasio may be a white guy, but, according to his daughter, he’s not a boring one.

A new generation of super-PAC-like groups have begun to pour money into the city’s races, and several candidates are certainly benefiting.
Former Comptroller Bill Thompson has already been boosted by more than $650,000 in spending on his behalf from groups formed by two of the city’s major unions, according to new disclosure statements filed with the city’s campaign finance board today.
