Bronx clerk moonlights as consultant for firm under investigation

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
