[June 12] Ex-Brooklyn Assemblywoman Pamela Harris pled guilty to pocketing nearly $60,000 in public funds meant for a non-profit and Hurricane Sandy relief. Authorities slapped Harris with a 11-count indictment for fraud in January and she resigned from her post in April, before the trial began.

She pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud, one count of making false statements to FEMA and one count of witness tampering to federal authorities.   Pamela Harris is a former Democratic member of the New York State Assembly, representing District 46.
