Another pol arrested...

From WPIX:

New York State assemblyman William Scarborough was arrested by investigators from the attorney general’s office Wednesday morning.

Scarborough, who represents the 29th Assembly District in Southeast Queens, is expected to appear in NYS Court in Albany Wednesday.

In late March, investigators from Attorney General Schneiderman and the FBI raided his Queens district office and Queens home, as well as his Capital office.

Scarborough admitted himself to media that investigators were probing whether he abuses the state’s travel voucher system, which reimburses elected officials for certain work-related expenses.

The attorney general and state comptroller will discuss the developments at 2 p.m.

Scarborough's travel vouchers are as phony as that "hair" on his head.

Between this and the library and the general run down image of the borough we scream 'laughing stock' to the rest of the city.

Anything positive seems to be little more than real estate spin.

The capacity for Queens residents to absorb abuse is infinite.

Jamaica has been 100% corrupt since the 1960s. It's what forced all of the major department stores out of there once it was realized that businesses had to pay to play. It hasn't changed since. Any politician there must be considered corrupt and self-serving. Throw them all out!!

I'm shocked, SHOCKED! to find that a member of the Senate or Assembly is being investigated! These selfless public servants should be worshiped rather than investigated.....

For some reasons, Scarborough's rug has always reminded me of Carl Perkins'.
