MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Nichelle Johnson, the city of Mount Vernon’s top corporation counsel, has been cleared of any ethical misconduct after it was found that she made use of a publisher and strip club owner’s car.

Earlier this year, Johnson – who is also Mayor Ernest Davis’ chief of staff – became the subject of a Board of Ethics probe after it was found she was loaned a BMW from newspaper publisher Sam Zherka.

Zherka, who also owns and operates a strip club, has sued the city twice and was recently appointed to Mount Vernon’s police-community liaison committee.

Of course she's been cleared by her own peers. They've got each other's backs!
