Wills also in tweeding probe

From the NY Post:

Investigators are cranking up their criminal probe of Queens Councilman Ruben Wills following the conviction of his mentor, ex-state Sen. Shirley Huntley, in a mushrooming scandal involving the theft of taxpayer funds from nonprofit groups, The Post has learned.

Probers are refocusing on Wills, a former chief-of-staff to Huntley, after Huntley pleaded guilty in federal court Jan. 30 to embezzling $87,700 in taxpayer money from a nonprofit, the Parents Information Network, founded by her daughter.

Huntley is expected to plead guilty to felony evidence-tampering charges stemming from a separate state corruption case against her pending in Nassau County Supreme Court. Wills is being eyed by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman for failure to account for about $32,000 in state funding that Huntley steered to a separate nonprofit group he headed, New York 4 Life.

The probe of Wills will move from the back burner once the Huntley case is disposed of, insiders said.

One by one... Justice may take it's time, but I'm glad to see the system working.

The corrupt Jamaica rogue gallery players are falling like dominoes. Are you all keep tracking of your score cards?

Joe: not only that, I'm hoping these louts will be wearing prison stripes and under the watchful gaze of a shotgun toting sheriff as they clean up the litter and garbage in Jamaica. A la Coolhand Luke. (Hey, you can be Strother Martin!)

Hah! Not surprised. This is just the tip of the iceberg
I'm beginning to understand why Jamaica and environs are in the condition that they are in.
Clean da house mon!
