From the NY Post:
After tapping his campaign treasurer to serve as the city’s top investigator, Mayor de Blasio nominated another campaign supporter to serve on the city’s five-member ethics panel.
Lawyer Fernando Bohorquez Jr. — one of the mayor’s two nominees to the Conflicts of Interest Board — personally contributed $1,925 to de Blasio’s mayoral campaign last year and hosted three fund-raisers for him.
The BakerHostetler attorney also was one of two lawyers at the firm who worked pro-bono for de Blasio when he was public advocate — filing an amicus brief on his behalf last October on the stop-and-frisk lawsuit.
Other lawyers at the Midtown firm contributed an additional $12,500 to de Blasio’s campaign.
A number of good government groups said closeness to de Blasio doesn’t disqualify his nominees from serving, but is likely to bring more scrutiny.
