The Bronx County clerk who was suspended amid a state criminal probe of a homeless services provider has been moonlighting as a paid consultant to the firm for years, The Post has learned.
Luis Diaz, who makes $210,900 as the county clerk, worked as a paid consultant for Aguila Inc. for at least six years, his annual financial statements filed with the state Office of Court Administration reveal.
Diaz, a former state assemblyman, was paid between $20,000 and $60,000 a year by Aguila from 2013 to 2019, records show.
Given his hefty pay, Diaz’s moonlighting is raising eyebrows in The Bronx.
“It seems to me he’s making plenty as a county clerk. I didn’t know that a county clerk could have outside income,” said one Bronx Democratic Party insider who requested anonymity.
“He’s making the same salary as a state Supreme Court justice!”
Diaz’s wife, Anna Diaz, also is employed
