Top de Blasio Aide Dating Convicted Killer and Cop-Hater

Rachel Noerdlinger, chief of staff to New York City first lady Chirlane McCray, and who attends top-level meetings with the New York Police Department, is living with a convicted killer who calls police "pigs," DNAinfo New York reports.

The man's latest arrest was late last year when he was accused of attempting to run over a police officer while driving Noerdlinger's car.

Thirty-six-year-old Hassaun McFarlan has been linked romantically with Noerdlinger since 2010, the website reported, and the two have lived together for nearly two years.

Before signing on with de Blasio's administration, Noerdlinger was spokeswoman for Al Sharpton's National Action Network.

McFarlan has been arrested at least five times, the first as a 15-year-old, when he shot another teenager over a down jacket in 1993. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was imprisoned until 2000.

By 2003, he was in legal trouble again when he was arrested as part of an interstate crack-trafficking ring. In 2005, he pleaded guilty to drug-trafficking, drug-possession and conspiracy charges. He served a term in state prison that ended in 2007.

He was arrested at least three times, since them, DNAinfo reports. Two of those charges involved driving without a license.

McFarlan's most recent arrest occurred Nov. 11, 2013, when he was charged with eluding a police officer in Edgewater, N.J. According to a report filed by Officer Tim Farrell, the policeman was directing traffic after an accident in the early morning hours of Nov. 10.

Ten minutes after he arrived, Farrell said he heard a "loud dragging noise" and saw a heavily damaged black Mercedes-Benz sedan with a missing tire being driven down the street.

The car moved toward the officer and its driver, identified as McFarlan, refused to stop. The officer said he and a tow-truck driver had to jump out of the way to avoid being struck.

The officer later followed a scrape mark in the road until he found the car parked across the street from McFarlan and Noerdlinger's apartment. The car was registered to Noerdlinger.

McFarlan pleaded guilty in March 2014 to disorderly conduct and was fined $500.

McFarlan said in the police report that he was a self-employed electrician. But the DNAinfo website said his LinkedIn account says he also worked for Noerdlinger's communication firm. That account has since been taken down.

On his Facebook page, also since taken down, McFarlan went by Hassaun Kenneth Ackles and often criticized the police, referring to them as "pigs."

In one post, he reported wrote, "I cant come outside without the pigs f------ with me in the hood out the hood im a magnet to police f------ with me."

Author and mental health advocate Terrie Williams told DNAinfo that she has counseled McFarlan and helps him gets speaking engagements where he warns young people against following his path.

"That's the beauty of us being able to reinvent ourselves, change our lives and do some good," she said.

"No one at City Hall condones criminal behavior or disparagement of the NYPD, including Rachel," de Blasio spokeswoman Rebecca Katz told the website. "Rachel is her own person. She is a strong, independent woman who possesses a core set of values and beliefs that align with this administration."

Both Noerdlinger and McFarlan declined to comment.
