A state grand jury has indicted a Democratic lawmaker on allegations she ripped off the state’s food stamp program.
Cecilia Velasquez, D-Litchfield Park, stands accused of fraud, unlawful use of food stamps, and theft by misrepresentation, all low-level felonies.
Velasquez denied the charges on Twitter.
“I have done nothing wrong!” she wrote. “This is a political witch hunt. I’m confident that justice WILL prevail once all the facts are known.”
