New York Mayor Bill de Blasio will be sworn in for his second term by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, City Hall revealed Wednesday.

De Blasio’s choice is surprising given his enthusiastic support of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and his long maintained ties to the Clinton family. These ties were on full display during his first swearing in presided over by former President Bill Clinton, who de Blasio served under in the Department of Housing and Urban Development

De Blasio was also Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager during her run for the U.S. Senate in the state of New York in 2000.

The New York City mayor blasted Sanders repeatedly during the 2016 democratic presidential primary for accusing Clinton of taking money from special interest groups.
