The following is from C.J. Ciaramella, “New York Prosecutors Gave Themselves $3.2 Million in Bonuses With Asset Forfeiture Funds,” Reason Blog, November 28, 2017:

The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office in New York doled out $3.25 million in bonuses to prosecutors from its asset forfeiture fund since 2012, according to records obtained by Newsday through a Freedom of Information request.

Newsday reported that the funds were $500,000 more than previously reported, leading to consternation from local legislators:

Bonus recipients included deputy chief homicide prosecutor Robert Biancavilla, who received a total of $108,886 between 2012 and 2017, and division chief Edward Heilig and top public corruption prosecutor Christopher McPartland, who each received $73,000, according to records obtained from county Comptroller John Kennedy’s office through the Freedom of Information Law […]

Task: spot the irony.

Hint: It has to do with Mr. McPartland.
