Union Embezzler Complains About Losing “Accustomed Lifestyle”

“At some time during the conspiracy, the defendant, Anna May Ervolino, stated to a person known to the Grand Jury that she hoped certain persons ‘did not expect them [the defendants] to give up the lifestyle to which they were accustomed.'”
–Denise E. O’Donnell, U.S. Attny, W.D.N.Y., May 16, 2000
Ervolino’s statement came as investigators zeroed in on her and her late husband, Frank, for bankrupting the Hospital & Nursing Home Council’s pension fund by using their executive positions on the HNHC to embezzle hundreds of thousands of dollars.
