Board of Elections officer Risa Sugarman said that Arroyo's campaign"has a long history of non-compliance with the filing and disclosure requirements imposed by the Election Law."

When filing with the joint state commission on public ethics, she claimed to have won $30,000 from a casino in Yonkers. As well, Arroyo's grandson, and former chief-of-staff, Ricardo Izquierdo Arroyo, spent 10 months in prison for embezzling $115,000 from a nonprofit that the pol founded and funded with taxpayer money.

She also said that she paid her husband $20,000 as a "political consultant," which he is not.
