The council took in more than $1.2 million in government funds between 2005 and 2009, IRS records show. Rivera employed her latest boy toy, Brooklyn teacher Tommy Torres, 35, at her Morris Park district office. He logged 20 hours a week there, raking in more than $18,000 from Rivera AT THE SAME TIME he was pulling in $90,000 as a full-time city teaching and coaching jobs.
The allegations have sparked an avalanche of probes, with the state attorney general, the Bronx DA and special schools prober Richard Condon all now looking into Rivera. Riveras boyfriends arent the only ones who made a lucrative living on the taxpayer gravy train.
