From the Times Ledger:
Harvey Seifter, the former executive director of the Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts, was arrested and charged with grand larceny last week for allegedly bilking nearly $5,000 from the cultural institution, according to the city Department of Investigation.
DOI Commissioner Rose Gill Hearn said Friday that Harvey Seifter, 55, is accused of stealing $4,230 while serving as the head of the the Flushing Council, which operates Flushing Town Hall, between 2004 and 2008.
“Executives at city−funded nonprofits must be careful stewards of their organizations’ money,” Hearn said. “Intentionally double−billing is a crime that wastes precious resources.”
The arrest came more than two years after the FCCA board abruptly fired Seifter.
