An Arroyo, Charged With Embezzlement, Will Help Pick Judges

One little-noticed result of last night’s primary: the grandson of Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo who was charged with embezzlement earlier this year was just elected as a delegate to the judicial convention.

Richard Izquierdo Arroyo defeated Linda Duke for the position, which is unpaid but would help decide the Democratic Party’s picks for Supreme Court judgeships in the Bronx. Delegates are elected by Assembly district.

Izquierdo Arroyo is accused of taking money from a non-profit company that manages low-income housing.
