IRS: Boak’s Charity Spent Mostly On Salaries, Little For Victims

ALBANY, NY – Alison Boak was recently excoriated by the press for failing to disclose her income on her state ethics disclosure form. Now, new revelations surround Boak’s relationship with her Chicago-based, taxpayer-funded charity that threaten to sink her 40th Senate District campaign.

40th SD Dem candidates tainted by yet another scandal

ALBANY, NY – Alison Boak’s 40th Senate District campaign faces major ethical questions today after her recently-filed 2015 ethics form revealed she failed to disclose interests and income from a non-profit corporation she controls and other business ventures.
