NYC Councilman Andy King Faces New Charges | New York Carib News

It’s only been a few months since NYC Councilman Andy King recently got himself in hot water and was suspended for 30 days with an independent monitor planted at his office to ensure transparency. He is in trouble again.

The Bronx Democrat now faces new ethics charges and calls for expulsion less than four months after the Council sanctioned him for past misconduct – including fresh accusations of harassment and misuse of taxpayer funds for his own gain.

The Committee on Standards and Ethics on Friday voted to charge Councilman Andy King for numerous violations of Council rules and local city and state laws that occurred between 2017 and as recently as Wednesday.

Council Speaker Corey Johnson said he should be removed if he is found guilty.
