Convicted pol listed on fundraiser invite

Invite by ColinCampbell

From the Politicker:

The Brooklyn Democratic Party’s party isn’t going to be as colorful as it once looked.

The invitation for the organization’s big fund-raising dinner, obtained by the Observer, lists the “Hon. William F. Boyland Jr.,” along with the likes of Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, the headliner honoree.

But Mr. Boyland isn’t especially honorable these days. The scion of a prominent Brownsville political family was expelled from the State Assembly last month following his conviction on a bevy of corruption charges.

Reached for comment, a Brooklyn Democratic spokesman said that Mr. Boyland’s inclusion on the invite was “erroneous” and that Mr. Boyland had lost his position in the county organization after his conviction.
