Bronx News Roundup, March 13

Lots of politicians today.

Former Bronx Borough President and current White House urban policy czar Adolfo Carrion responded to this week's announcement by the Bronx DA's office that they are investigating possible corruption in his dealings with an architect. Carrion hasn't paid the architect for work on the then-BP's house in 2006 and 2007; the work was done while the architect had business pending with the city.
The Daily News has been leading the charge on this story; in case you missed their editorial yesterday, here it is.

Liz Benjamin has a report on State Senator Espada's ongoing problems with the state Board of Elections. On top of issues from his most recent State Senate race, Espada has over $61,000 worth of fines still due from his 2001 bid for BP. Benjamin also has an update from Espada on his still-nonexistent district office.

State Senator Eric Schneiderman has announced he won't run for DA to replace the retiring Robert Morgenthau.

Bronx Congressman Eliot Engel has been claiming his Maryland home outside DC as his primary residence on tax forms for more than ten years; Maryland is revoking the congressman's tax break.

In non-politician news, Forbes has a photo-essay on the robot team at Morris High School in the South Bronx.

And the Bronx Zoo has a brand new baby tree kangaroo. Very cute.
