No Pork for Embattled Seabrook

4 May

Council Member Larry Seabrook

Council Member Larry Seabrook, the Wakefield lawmaker who is scheduled for a second corruption trialfollowing a hung jury in the first one last fall, won’t be getting his hands on the usual discretionary dough that local legislators dole out to nonprofits of their choice.

The New York Post reports that, in light of the charges that Seabrook funneled $1 million to nonprofits he controlled and siphoned some of it for himself and family members, he and Council Speaker Christine Quinn came to an agreement that she and the Bronx delegation delegation chair Annabel Palma would decide which nonprofits in Seabrook’s district to allocate the money to.
