A state lawmaker from Brooklyn was indicted on Tuesday on 11 counts of fraud and obstruction charges, in what federal prosecutors allege was a variety of schemes to defraud both the city of New York, the federal government and a bankruptcy proceeding.

Assemblywoman Pamela Harris, a Democrat elected to fill the seat held by Alec Brook-Krasny in 2015, is the latest state lawmaker to face charges of corruption. The new legislative session began in Albany last week.

Federal prosecutors in the Eastern District allege Harris defrauded a variety of government agencies, including the New York City Council, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Department of Housing and Urban Development as well as the New York City Build it Back program.

Part of the charges stem from her time as the executive director of a non-profit organization, with prosecutors claiming Harris defrauded $23,000 in discretionary funding for the Brooklyn-based group.

Separately, while a sitting state lawmaker, prosecutors allege Harris carried out “a nearly identifical scheme” that claimed funds from the city Council were being used on rental space, but where in fact diverted for personal use.

“As alleged in the indictment, the defendant defrauded government agencies out of tens of thousands of dollars in public funds and tried to fraudulently obtain even more,” said United States Attorney Richard Donoghue.

“She conducted her schemes victimizing the federal and New York City governments, and then obstructed a federal investigation into her crimes while a sitting New York State Assemblywoman. When she learned that law enforcement was investigating her various fraud schemes, she pressured witnesses to lie to the FBI and cover them up. This Office and our law enforcement partners are committed to ensuring that those who serve the public are held accountable under the law to the same extent as the people they are privileged to serve.”

Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, a Republican, said he was “disheartened” by the news of Harris’s indictment, which he learned about a press conference earlier on Tuesday morning. Flanagan said he was concerned that whenever someone is indicted in the Legislature it paints the rest of Albany with too broad a brush.

Brook-Krasny, Harris’s predecessor in the Assembly, was indicted in 2017 on Medicaid fraud charges.
