Ex-City Councilman Erik Dilan was slapped with a $9000 fine for taking an affordable apartment for which he didn’t qualify from a crooked developer with business before the New York City Council.
Dilan’s sweet deal was first revealed by the Daily News in 2011, and the Conflicts of Interest Board launched a probe.
Dilan (D-Brooklyn) — now a state Assemblyman — broke city conflicts of interest law by failing to disclose his financial relationship with his landlord, developer Sergio Benitez, when he voted to approve three of Benitez’s projects before the City Council, the board found.
Then, he asked for and got a bigger apartment from Benitez — even though he made tens of thousands of dollars too much to legally qualify for it.
The two-bedroom apartment on Decatur St. in Bushwick that Dilan picked out in 2008 was restricted to families making less than $114,000 a year, but he was allowed to move in even though he and his wife made $174,205.
The conflicts board found Dilan was illegally using his position for personal gain.

This sounds like a criminal case but it is being treated mor as a civil one. Total bs. Obvious corruptoin. He should be kicked out of office.oh wait,protected class and a democrat........
But does he get to keep the apartment?
Just look at the horrible rundown appearance of his district and you kind of know the type of representative this Dilan character is. But the dumb voters keep voting him in...
What price did Charlie Rangel have to pay for doing the same?
Why isn't this pillar of civic virtue being considered to replace Shelly as Assembly Speaker?????
hang him from a street lamp, right next to Silver.
We need to make public exmaples of what happens to politicians who break the law.
I'm shocked! Shocked!
He former chief of staff and now our city council member rafael spinal should be investigated. both of them corrupt.
ERIK..DYLAN.IS SAME THE FATHER.SAME10O/%.
