With the indicted Larry Seabrook a no-show at today's City Council session, reporters covering City Hall and the slush-fund scandal found someone else to question: Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo.
Not that she was talking. According to the Daily News' Elizabeth Benjamin, Arroyo had nothing to say as she walked through security.
The councilwoman's nephew, you may recall, was charged last year with stealing $200,000 in public money. Some observers believe the same investigation could eventually bring down Arroyo and her mother, Assemblywoman Carmen E. Arroyo.
Seabrook, meanwhile, resigned this afternoon as chairman of the Civil Rights Committee.
