NYPD Commissioner Didn’t Disclose Club Dues
NEW YORK (AP) – New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly has failed to report that his expenses at the Harvard Club have been covered by a private foundation for the past eight years.
His spokesman, Paul Browne, told The New York Times that the practice was legal and the expenses were incurred while Kelly was conducting city business. But he said Kelly may have erred in failing to report that the tab was picked up by the nonprofit New York City Police Foundation, as required by the city’s Conflicts of Interest Board.
The spokesman said Kelly would amend the filings for the expenses, including the club’s annual dues of about $1,500, drinks and meals.
The website nypdconfidential.com first reported on the arrangement between Kelly and the foundation on Monday.
