From the NY Post:
The board of directors of the embattled senior-services agency founded by Brooklyn Democratic boss Vito Lopez has gone from clueless to connected.
The city ordered a shake-up of the board of the Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council last year after investigators were aghast to discover a panel so hapless that some members couldn't identify the center's programs and others signed contracts they didn't understand because they spoke only Spanish.
But the rejiggering has produced a group even more connected to Vito, an assemblyman whose girlfriend and campaign treasurer run the sprawling social-services empire.
The nonprofit is the key to Lopez's power base.
