Bklink: Brooklyn Diary

April 15th, 2008 · No Comments

The Daily News has a new feature called “Brooklyn Diary” and one of today’s entries deals with whether the art collecting done by the wife of Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz at the Brooklyn Museum Ratner Gala violated any city rules. “…it raised questions the city Conflict of Interest Board had never before considered…A source said the agency has never ruled on issues involving an official’s spouse, but suggested that had Markowitz taken the multi-colored artworks himself, it would have likely been a conflict. ‘This is kind of a tricky one,’ said the source, who added the agency was aware of Jamie’s newfound art collection but refused to say whether there was investigation into the possible conflict.”–NYDN
