Carrion fined $10,000 in conflict with architect

Former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion has been fined $10,000 by the city Conflict of Interest Board for his connection with the architect who helped renovate his home in 2006. At the time, the architect was also seeking approval from his office for a separate project.

This caused a two-year delay in being billed for the architect's work (A bill that probably wouldn't have been paid had the public not found out about the situation, despite what Carrion claims).

Carrion left the Bronx BP position in 2009 to become Obama's urban affairs czar, but later got 'moved' to the regional director of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Head over to the Daily Politics later on to get more information. Right now, they only have the disposition, which is here below:
