But maybe not so funny to NYC taxpayers.

Bronx pol’s secret Facebook page with staffer boytoy

To constituents, she's Naomi D. Rivera, a mild-mannered, bespectacled Bronx assemblywoman whose social-media page is dotted with her accomplishments, thoughtful sayings and the latest neighborhood news. But on another, secret Facebook page, she's Daniela Rivera, a sultry single 47-year-old who shows off her curves, her dance moves and, in one photo accessible to the public, the top of her lacy red bra.

But more than anything, the lawmaker’s Internet alter-ego is devoted to Tommy Torres, a fellow Democrat eight years her junior whom she has been dating for at least two years — and whom she put on her government payroll. The legislator began posting romantic photos of Torres in 2009, when she created the page under "Daniela," her middle name, and a year before she hired him or finalized her divorce from husband Antonio Rodriguez.

Torres pulled down $18,123 in taxpayer-funded salary while working out of Rivera's Morris Park district office for four months in 2010, records show. But exactly what he did for his $1,100-a-week rate remains unclear — as does the question of how it was even possible for him to work for Rivera when he was already working full time as a gym teacher and high-school sports coach.

I wonder what kind of pension Torres will get for his four-month stint as a "government employee."
