Feds seek financial documents for Yonkers GOP boss

Why do we care about a federal investigation in Yonkers? Because it centers around the approval of Bruce Ratner's controversial Ridge Hill project.

News broke today about a second subpoena:

YONKERS — The FBI yesterday served a second subpoena on a city entity this month, this time seeking any financial-disclosure documents filed by city Republican Chairman Zehy Jereis, said the chairman of a board charged with collecting the documents.

Ethics Board Chairman Joseph Nocca, a Republican and former city judge, said the board could not fulfill the request, because political party officials are not required to file the financial disclosure documents under a 2005 city law. The Ethics Board, under the City Charter, must collect the documents annually from many city officials and employees.
