Probed pol has hubby on payroll
Monday, July 16, 2012
HEAT FROM the slush fund scandal may have made it tough for Bronx Councilwoman Maria Del Carmen Arroyo to steer taxpayer cash to relatives through dubious nonprofits, but she’s still finding ways to line her family’s pockets.
Arroyo put her husband on her campaign payroll — paying him $15,000 from her campaign funds for “consulting” over the past six months, records show.
Her husband, lawyer Ricardo Aguirre, has gotten the vast majority of the $21,173 she has spent so far on her reelection.
