NEW YORK (AP) - Maybe they confused the Empire State with the Evil Empire.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio suggested the Force was not strong with the City Hall staffer who placed the symbol for Star Wars’ Galactic Empire next to all state agencies in the official city directory.

It was the latest salvo in the ongoing rivalry between de Blasio’s administration and Governor Andrew Cuomo.

De Blasio said Monday that it “was a silly thing to do.”

He said the culprit has yet to be identified but that person “shouldn’t have done it.”

The presence of the Imperial Crest in the city’s online directory known as the Green Book was first reported by The New York Post.

A spokesman for Cuomo teased that the prank’s lack of originality was “disturbing.”
