State Comptroller DiNapoli Statement on Federal Indictment of Assemblyman Boyland for Submitting Fraudulent Travel Vouchers

"My office's examination of Mr. Boyland's expenses found a blatant pattern of abuse. The actions of U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Loretta E. Lynch and the U.S. Department of Justice sends a clear message that elected officials who try to enrich themselves and break the public trust will be held accountable. The Office of State Comptroller will continue to cooperate with law enforcement officials in this serious matter."

In early February, the Office of the State Comptroller released the findings of an examination of Assemblyman William Boyland's travel expenses and a letter withholding future payments from the Assemblyman. For copies:
