Adams, de Blasio accepted campaign cash from Brooklyn man charged in bank fraud scheme

A Brooklyn businessman recently charged in a sprawling bank-fraud scheme gave political contributions to Mayor de Blasio and Democratic mayoral nominee Eric Adams, public records show.

David Motovich, who manages Midwood Lumber & Millwork Inc., is facing federal bank fraud, identity theft and witness tampering charges over a $55 million check-cashing operation that Jacquelyn Kasulis, the acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District, said last Tuesday “deliberately flouted federal banking and anti-money laundering laws.”

Motovich, 46, has donated to the campaigns of de Blasio and Adams over the years, as well as disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner.

In 2003, he made a $1,500 donation to de Blasio’s City Council campaign, listing himself at the time as the lumber company’s CEO, city campaign finance records show. Two years later he gave to Weiner, listing himself as the company’s vice president.
