Key Ally To Sheldon Silver Under Investigation For Financial Improprieties At Non-Profit Group

This is how they operate, non-profits run by the corrupt, money laundering, self serving morons and this close to Silver but we are to believe Silver had nothing to do with it, he heard nothing, saw nothing so he didn’t have to say nothing..~Rus.

A close ally to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was fired and is under state investigation for misusing funds at a major city non-profit, sources confirmed this morning.

William Rapfogel, the chief executive officer of the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty since 1992 and husband of Silver chief of staff Judy Rapfogel, was abruptly fired by the organization after it discovered “financial irregularities and apparent misconduct in connection with the organization’s insurance policies,” a statement released this morning says.

“The Board retained outside counsel to conduct a full investigation,” the statement said. ” Based on that investigation, which is ongoing, the Board has terminated Mr. Rapfogel, effective immediately, and notified the proper authority. To date, the investigation has not revealed evidence that any current employees of Met Council engaged in any wrongdoing.”

A source familiar with the situation says that Rapfogel is believed to have purchased insurance policies using council money and then received kickbacks from the insurance agents who sold them.
While it is early in the process, there is no evidence at this point linking Judy Rapfogel or Silver to the Rapfogel’s suspected actions, a source said.

The offices of Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and state Controller Thomas DiNapoli confirmed they are investigating, but refused to say anything more. The New York Times first reported the probe.

The fact DiNapoli is involved means there is a belief that state funds that went to the council were misused.
