Are you familiar with the corruption case of Democratic member of the New York State Assembly, William Boyland Jr.? Well let us tell you about someone who was in charge of doing the dirty in all senses of the expression!
Meet 35-year-old Ry-Ann Hermon of Brooklyn NY, she has also lived in Queens Village, NY and Hempstead, NY. She is the former chief of staff for Assemblyman William Boyland, who pleaded guilty last year and admitted to accepting bribes from undercover FBI agents posing as businessmen seeking favors from Boyland.
Brooklyn Assemblyman William Boyland Jr., who is on trial for corruption was having an affair with his chief of staff –Hermon- who is now ready to testify against him! Ry-Ann Hermon was having an affair with her boss at the same time she was his partner in a scheme to solicit bribes.
While trying to get a bite of the alleged bribes on which her boss was feasting she said during a meeting to an undercover agent
“I don’t know if I would ever get any extra money out of it or not,” “Because at the end of the day, my description is to work for him. So if you’re trying to give me a bonus check, bring it. I’ll welcome it.”
She was eventually arrested alongside Boyland on corruption raps.
Hermon’s boss and sexual partner, solicited money from undercovers to secure permits for local carnivals and for easy access to properties that could be profitably developed. His lawyers have countered that he lobbied for contributions like any other politician but never actually intended to deliver favors.
Federal prosecutors have stated in court papers that Hermon had a “close, personal and confidential relationship” with the 43-year-old Boyland. The feds argue the affair is evidence of why Boyland trusted her to participate in his various illegal schemes.
Prosecutors say she also admitted picking up Boyland’s checks for a no-show job at Brookdale University Hospital.
Hermon was famously caught on a tape recording cooing, “Oh, my God! You just, like made me hot!” after taking a $1,000 payoff in 2012, according to court papers. You can read here the full FBI document where she was charged with bribery and hobbs.
