Councilmember Ruben Wills is under investigation for a missing $32,000.

Councilmember Ruben Wills is under investigation for $32,000 that seems to have disappeared.

State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is looking at Wills for the missing state-funded money that former State Senator Shirley Huntley put towards a nonprofit group that he headed, New York 4 Life.

Investigators are reportedly revving up their probe of Wills following Huntley’s guilty plea for embezzling taxpayer money and falsifying evidence.

One insider told the New York Post that Wills is “definitely on everyone’s radar.”

In August of 2010, the councilmember submitted a payment voucher to the state Office of Children and Family Services on behalf of New York 4 Life, seeking an advance of $33,000.

The office followed suit and provided the funds, according to the AG office. The account was depleted, signed by Wills, who did not respond to questions regarding where the money went. Schneiderman’s office issued a subpoena looking for documentation of the spending, but less than $1,000 was accounted for.

Wills did not respond to calls for comment.
