10. He Is Term Limited

Unless...like Bloomberg he makes a deal with the city council for a 3rd term thusly cutting New Yorkers off from their vote

2. Charges Needed To Be Filed Especially If The Man Is Mentally Disturbed

This has been happening a lot in NYC lately and not addressing it leaves the man free to do it again
