Eric Adams has faced questions over discrepancies in his residence, unreported income in his Federal income tax returns, accepting gifts or campaign donations from special interests with business before his office, and meeting with élites in private clubs or expensive establishments. He has been interviewed in connection with a State investigation into Aqueduct Racetrack. The New York Times has asserted that Adams 'has continued to push the boundaries of campaign-finance and ethics laws.'
"[A]uthorities are examining whether the Adams campaign conspired with the Turkish government to receive donations from foreign sources, funneled through straw donors," the Associated Press reported, referring to a report published by the New York Times.

Mayor-elect Eric Adams and his partner, Tracey Collins, flew to Puerto Rico in November 2021 for the SOMOS lobbyist conference on the private jet of cryptocurrency billionaire Brock Pierce. A spokesman said Adams paid the market value for two seats on Pierce's plane, according to a report broadcast by WNBC-TV.
Eric Adams patronises Zero Bond, a members-only club that does not let in the general public, thereby making Adams available to represent the Government to select, social élites. Adams claims he is supporting nightlife.
The New York Times has made the assertion that Eric Adams has received matching donations from the Municipal campaign finance regulatory authority to which he may not have been entitled as a result of real estate developers and others having raised money on his behalf. He has also raised money from people with business before his office and has espoused the causes of his donors, leading to an impression that Adams has 'repeatedly pushed the boundaries of campaign-finance and ethics laws.'
Mayor Eric Adams appointed Timothy Pearson, a casino executive, as a paid senior adviser — while allowing him to keep his NYPD pension and his job at the Resorts World New York City casino. Resorts World is seeking approval to expand in Queens, the New York Times has reported.
After the CCRB recommended in April 2023 disciplinary action against Chief of Department Jeffrey Maddrey for abuse of authority allegedly involving an underlying incident in 2021, Mayor Eric Adams pressured Commissioner Keechant Sewell not to impose any discipline, according to reporting in The City.
Six months after this fundraiser, Eric Adams supported a spot rezoning that would permit Slate Property Group to build a building twice the allowable size over the opposition of a Brooklyn community board.
Financial contributors to the One Brooklyn Fund have been allowed to exceed the limits set by the Municipal campaign finance regulatory authority, thereby providing extra support to Eric Adams, its beneficiary.
Edolphus Towns sits on the board of directors of One Brooklyn Fund Inc. He also represents Arker Diversified, and, on its behalf, Towns has been lobbying Eric Adams. Towns has also bundled donations for at least one of Adams' campaign committees.
