From the Daily News:
Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo, whose nephew Richard Izquierdo was indicted on charges of looting nonprofit groups she funded, hid behind a wall of aides and security officers as she entered and left the Council.
"I have no comment, no matter what you ask," Arroyo said.
From the NY Post:
City Council members and staffers yesterday predicted that Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo could be the next member of their body indicted in an ongoing "slush fund" probe that just snared fellow Bronx Democrat Larry Seabrook.
"Everybody I spoke to today thought she was next," said one council member, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Another said, "Everybody's speculating [about Arroyo]. There's lots of talk."
And a third council member noted that after Seabrook's arrest on federal charges Tuesday, city Department of Investigation Commissioner Rose Gill Hearn said the probe is not over.
Arroyo, who refused to answer questions yesterday, is a member of a powerful political family whose members have close and complicated ties to several nonprofit groups that have received taxpayer funds at the behest of her and her mother, state Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo.
