Kelly Didn't Report Freebies at Harvard Club



    Inspiring Stories of Hope
    New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly

    The Commish may be Crimson with embarassment.

    New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly has failed to report that his expenses at the Harvard Club have been covered by a private foundation for the past eight years.

    His spokesman, Paul Browne, told The New York Times that the practice was legal and the expenses were incurred while Kelly was conducting city business.

    But Browne said Kelly may have erred in failing to report that the tab was picked up by the nonprofit New York City Police Foundation, as required by the city's Conflicts of Interest Board.

    Kelly -- who holds a master's degree in public administration from Harvard -- will amend the filings for the expenses, including the club's annual dues of about $1,500, drinks and meals, Browne said.

    The website first reported on the arrangement between Kelly and the foundation on Monday.
