Who is Daniel J. Halloran III?

Daniel J. "Dan" Halloran III is a former member of the New York City Council currently under indictment in Federal court on corruption charges.

He was endorsed by the Republican, Libertarian, Independence and Conservative parties in his 2009 election to the New York City Council. A former police officer, he represents nearly 200,000 residents of New York City in the 19th Council District, of Queens. Elected on November 3, 2009, he succeeded Tony Avella, who made a failed bid to become the Democratic nominee for mayor. In September 2010, he was named one of City Hall's "40 under 40" for being a young influential member of New York City politics.

Halloran sits on the Fire & Criminal Justice, Public Safety, Land Use, Public Housing, and Mental Health, Mental Retardation, Alcoholism, Drug Abuse and Disability Services committees.

On April 2, 2013, Halloran was arrested along with New York State Senator Malcolm A. Smith by the FBI under federal corruption charges. The complaint by the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York and the New York FBI field office alleged that Smith attempted to secure a spot on the Republican ballot in the 2013 New York City mayoral election through bribery. As part of the scheme, Halloran allegedly facilitated the Smith bribes and also accepted over $18,000 in cash bribes from an undercover agent and a cooperating witness.
