Dov Hikind Under investigation For Corruption in Maimonides Hospital

New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind in under investigation for corruption.

The investigation revealed dealings between Assemblyman Dov Hikind’s advertising business and Maimonides Medical Center.

The Moreland Commission, a panel probing corruption in the legislature of New York, described the evidence discovered about the relationship between the elected official, and payments made to the company by an anonymous entity.

The commission has reached "no conclusions at this time," according to the report, but one email from a senior official of the entity described a possible pay to play relationship.

For years, Hikind had not disclosed income payments made by Maimonides and others to his advertising business, DYS Production according toa report by Crains New York.

Hikind received $65,000 from Maimonides Medical Center, which has routinely lobbied Hikind for financing from the state.

Maimonides officials said the payments were for advertisements that ran on Hikind's radio show as well as guest appearances on the show by their physicians.
