The son of former vice-presidential nominee Geraldine Ferraro won a pardon Saturday in his 1998 conviction for dealing coke.

John Zaccaro Jr., 52, a Manhattan real-estate developer, was a prominent fund-raiser for Hillary Clinton. He was pardoned by Democratic Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin.

Zaccaro was a 22-year-old student at Middlebury College in 1986 when he sold cocaine to an undercover cop. He got four months of house arrest.

His mom was a Queens congresswoman and became the first female vice-presidential nominee for a major party when she joined Walter Mondale’s Democratic ticket in 1984. They lost to President Ronald Reagan.

Ferraro, who died in 2011 at age 75, had accused police of entrapping her son.

In May, Zaccaro was elected mayor of Saltaire, LI, a Fire Island resort town.

He hosted a fund-raiser for Clinton at his New York City home in 2015 and was a member of her presidential campaign’s national finance council.

Local Democrats practically begging Hillary to run for mayor

Run, Hillary, run — for mayor.

Local Democratic activists said they would rally to Clinton’s side if she decided to take on Mayor de Blasio in a *primary this year.

“If Hillary entered the race, she would be the best candidate. I would support her because we need a change in New York City,” said Gregory Floyd, president of Teamsters Local 237.

Floyd, who represents school safety officers and Housing Authority workers, has clashed repeatedly with City Hall over policy.

“Hillary would be a better mayor than de Blasio. Every week we hear about investigations about fund-raising and city property being given away to real estate developers :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:,” he said.

Clinton captured 79 percent of the vote in the five boroughs during her failed November presidential run.

The Rev. Patrick Young, pastor of First Baptist Church in East Elmhurst, Queens, said Clinton could make history by shattering the mayoral glass ceiling in Gotham.

“Hillary would have been the first female president. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: She would be the first woman mayor in the history of New York City :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:,” he said.

“She would be better at working with people and engaging people. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: She would be a breath of fresh air. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: We have a cloud over our leadership right now.” :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

The Rev. Johnny Green, pastor of Harlem’s Mount Neboh Baptist Church, said Clinton would have his vote.

“Hillary over de Blasio. Anybody against de Blasio. De Blasio is a repeat offender when it comes to stupidity,” Green said.

One de Blasio critic claimed de Blasio would be toast if Clinton runs.

“I’m not sure she would have an opponent. De Blasio would have to drop out if she ran,” said former Mike Bloomberg campaign manager Bradley Tusk, who is hunting for a viable foe against the mayor.

The Clinton-for-mayor rumors lit up social media.

“Ummm, this may be the BEST news of 2017 yet!!! I’m fine with a pantsuit city :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:,” *Ladychampagneb posted on Instagram.

Clinton allies are pushing talk of her possibly running for mayor to “torture” de Blasio for waiting so long to back Clinton in the presidential race, according to one Democratic Party official.

“Trust me. People don’t forget,” said a Clinton Democratic National Committee delegate from New York.

A source said Clinton did not discourage her backers from discussing a City Hall bid.

“She wants to remain relevant :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:,” the source said.

Don’t expect Hillary Clinton to run for any office ever again

Don’t hold out for Hillary Clinton to take on Bill de Blasio for New York City mayor :D, a top Clinton confidante said Sunday.

“I don’t expect her to ever run for any elected office again,” former Clinton aide Neera Tanden told CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Politicos are practically begging Clinton to run for New York City mayor to challenge de Blasio, Clinton’s former Senate campaign manager who was slow to endorse her for president.

But after her devastating loss to Donald Trump, Tanden said Clinton will seek to stay relevant outside of the ballot box.

“I think she’s going to figure out ways to help kids and families. That’s been what she’s been focused on her whole life :rolleyes:, and a lot of issues that are affecting them, over the next couple of years,” said Tanden, head of the Center for American Progress.

New York City has never had a female mayor.
