Recall how the State Supreme Court and the Appellate Court ruled to keep Maria del Carmen Arroyo on the ballot despite obvious fraud that has led to at least three of her campaign workers being arrested.
As revealed on this website a court lawyer for the Appellate Court donated $2500 to the council member’s campaign.
And the Council Member’s husband is shown being sworn in by one of the Judges.
Another Judge paid Howard Vargas almost $15,000 for campaigning.
Luis Gonzalez, the presiding justice of New York’s Appellate Court, the court that upheld Arroyo staying on the ballot. His daughter apparent,y has a nepotism job in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
According to the Riverdale Press, Mr. Vargas, is a lawyer with the Bronx Democratic Party,that has received $350,000 in fees due to a constant stream of court-appointed positions.
Mr. Vargas is on the executive board of the Bronx Democratic Committee, of which Arroyo herself is a member. All in the family.
And it is no wonder they kept her on the ballot.
Is Luis Vargas related to Howard Vargas? That might explain how they get a couple of those low income affordable apartments.
Three people have been arrested in a fraud investigation centered around a campaign for City Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo. The campaign workers were arrested for allegedly filing false petitions.
The Bronx district attorney’s website announced the arrests. According to reports, Elbin Lopez, Betty Julien and Luis Vargas were hired by Arroyo’s campaign to gather signatures on petitions to get her name in the Democratic primary for her 2013 re-election to City Council.
