A staffer for Assemblyman Felix Ortiz was arrested Thursday morning and charged with wire fraud and stealing $80,000 from a campaign account connected to the lawmaker.

“I am just now being made aware of the charges against my staff member,” said Ortiz, a Brooklyn Democrat, in a statement. “I do not have any further information, and cannot comment at this time.”
