Now it’s official.

NY1’s Grace Rauh reports:

Manhattan DA Cy Vance Jr. announced the indictment of Queens GOP operative John Haggerty, accusing him of creating a “sham election company” (Special Election Operations) and stealing approximately $1.1 million from Mayor Bloomberg.

Haggerty was charged with grand larceny, money laundering and falsifying business records.

UPDATE: That $1.1 million is almost the entire amount ($1.2 million) Bloomberg personally contributed to the state Independence Party in two $600,000 contributions sent to the party’s housekeeping account in October and November.

The party only reported sending $750,000 to Haggerty’s firm, which wasn’t officially incorporated with the state Secretary of State’s office until after the November elections.
