Riveras in the News

José Rivera, the Bronx Democratic chairman, recently turned 70, and last Saturday he was profiled in The New York Times.
As reporter Manny Fernandez writes, Rivera's supporters, "praise him for strengthening the political muscle of Puerto Ricans in New York City and for building a family dynasty in the Bronx."
But, Fernandez goes on, Rivera has his detractors as well, who accuse the party chairman of nepotism and a "disorganized leadership style." Fernandez also reports that Rivera is under investigation by the F.B.I., "over allegations of wrongdoing involving real estate dealings." No charges have been brought and Rivera insists the feds will find he's done nothing wrong.
