The politician was charged with misusing tens of thousands of dollars in taxpayer funds even spending some of the money on a $750 designer handbag.
A city councilman's career is going to hell in a Louis Vuitton handbag.
Councilman Ruben Wills, 42, of Jamaica, Queens, was arrested Wednesday on charges of stealing $30,500 in government money, and using some of it for shopping trips to Nordstrom and Century 21 and the purchase of a $750 Vuitton bag at Macys.
Wills, a Democrat, was slapped with a dozen charges, including scheming to defraud, grand larceny and falsifying business records. A relative, Jelani Mills, 30, of St. Albans, Queens, also was charged.
The indictment details a very calculating scheme to defraud New York taxpayers while lining the councilmans own pockets, state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said. Noting that some of the money was supposed to be helping children in need, Schneiderman added, Thats about as low as you can get.
