In the December issue of the magazine, Kelly said de Blasio and other Democrats were "pandering to get votes," in criticizing stops of young black and Hispanic men. The city is appealing a judge's ruling it violated the Constitution in the way it carried out the stops.

De Blasio has said he won't keep Kelly as commissioner. The NYPD didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.
