NYC Housing Authority employees accused of bribery

 February 7, 2024

Close to 70 housing authority workers have been arrested on corruption charges in New York.

During a recent press conference, Damian Williams, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, released a statement on the matter.

“As we allege, the 70 defendants charged today allegedly demanded over two million dollars in bribe money from contractors in exchange for giving out over 13 million dollars of work on NYCHA buildings,” said Williams.

Williams also said that if contractors refused to hand over payment, “the defendants wouldn’t give them the work.”

“That’s classic pay to play, and this culture of corruption at NYCHA ends today,” Williams continued.

No one in this country is above the law; the sooner everyone gets on the same page about that, the better!

We commend those who are helping to bring the 70 defendants to justice.

What do you think should happen if the workers are found guilty?
