Flatbush Council candidate embellishes resume, raises campaign-finance red flags

Flatbush City Council candidate Kenya Handy-Hilliard exaggerated her resume on a mailer sent out to residents of the 40th Council District, Brooklyn Paper has learned. 

The flyers — which arrived in locals’ mailboxes this month and urged voters to support Handy-Hilliard in the June 22 Democratic primary election — touted the candidate’s years of experience in national and local government, including working in the offices of Rep. Yvette Clarke, Rep. Charles Rangel, the city Comptroller’s office, and the Department of Investigation.
