Barrett Appoints Felon after Taking His Campaign Cash
Developer Defrauds Government,
Appointed to Oversee Development
The 2004 criminal conviction came as a result of Boris Gohkman’s part in a scheme to defraud the Medicare program.
In 2007, Barrett appointed Gohkman, a real estate developer, to a Business Improvement District Board (BID).
Between the 2004 conviction and 2007 appointment, Barrett took $1,200 in campaign contributions from Gohkman.
“Less than two years after Gohkman was convicted of felony fraud, Mayor Barrett is accepting campaign cash from him,” said
“Talk about appointing the fox to guard the henhouse, Barrett appoints a developer convicted of defrauding the government to a board overseeing city development efforts,” said Kliesmet. “Why not give an accountant convicted of embezzlement the checkbook while you’re at it?”
