State assemblyman William Boyland Jr. is facing new federal charges that he faked thousands of dollars in travel expenses.

The charges stem from an investigation by State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, who last year cut off Boyland's travel expenses, saying the lawmaker had filed close to $68,000 in fake travel and meal claims.

Boyland allegedly claimed he was working in Albany when he was actually in Brooklyn.

The assemblyman was set to go to trial this summer for allegedly taking $250,000 in bribes to help influence state contracts.

These latest charges will now be added to that federal case against him.

Boyland's chief of staff last week pleaded guilty to bribery charges and is reportedly cooperating with federal prosecutors.
