On Feb. 19, Comrade Obama created by executive order yet another new executive office, the White House Office of Urban Affairs, and named Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion Jr. as the 'Urban Czar'. The new Czar will be tasked to guide, coordinate and oversee funding of all urban affairs policies and programs. As Bronx Borough President, Adolfo Carrion is no stranger to these duties, and the kickbacks that come with them.
New York Daily News reports that Adolfo Carrion has a long history of taking money from Bronx developers.
"The man who is President Obama's newly minted urban czar pocketed thousands of dollars in campaign cash from city developers whose projects he approved or funded with taxpayers' money, a Daily News probe found.
Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion often received contributions just before or after he sponsored money for projects or approved important zoning changes, records show."
It is not known at this date whether or not Mr. Carrion has ever cheated on his taxes.
