From the NY Post:
The nephew of a Bronx City Councilwoman and his associate were arrested today for stealing federal money from a non-profit to go on an expensive shopping spree, pay for trips to Puerto Rico and donate to political campaigns, the Department of Investigation charged today.
Richard Izquierdo, the nephew of City Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo and the grandson of Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo, and his business partner Margarita Villegas were charged with embezzling $200,000 from the South Bronx Community Corp., a non-profit that helps low-income disabled and elderly tenants, DOI said.
They also are accused of spending $48,000 on travel expenses, including trips for the councilwoman; $34,000 on car rentals and $5,500 on florists.
They used the non-profit's money to make campaign contributions to the councilwoman's mother, Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo (D-Bronx) and paid $3,800 to install floors in her district office.
So why haven't the pols been arrested, too?
