Former Miami City Manager Donald Warshaw conceded Monday that a city-funded children's charity paid more than $15,000 of his personal expenses, including clothing, hockey tickets and other entertainment.
Warshaw sent the charity, called Do The Right Thing, a check for $18,632, which his attorney said included reimbursement plus interest.
Warshaw also resigned as treasurer of the charity, which he helped found a decade ago.
The Herald reported July 9 that Do The Right Thing had paid for some of Warshaw's expenses on the charity's American Express credit card from 1995 to 1997 while he was city police chief. The charges were classified as routine business expenses on the charity's books and Internal Revenue Service filings.
The FBI is investigating. Warshaw has denied any wrongdoing.
