This Founding Father will no longer be in “the room where it happens” — thanks to Bill de Blasio.
The mayor, who has just three months left in office, is quietly banishing a statue of Thomas Jefferson from City Hall — where it has resided for the past 187 years, The Post has learned.
The city’s Public Design Commission — comprised of mayoral appointees — has listed “the long term loan” of the 1833 painted plaster Council Chambers statue of the Declaration of Independence author to the New-York Historical Society on its “consent” agenda for Monday.
The consent designation means the historic statue’s removal is not scheduled for public debate. The 11-member design commission will vote on de Blasio’s Jefferson exile after reviewing public comments, a City Hall spokesman said.
