State Assemblyman William Boyland Jr. pled not guilty Monday to a new round of federal mail fraud charges.

The Brooklyn lawmaker is accused of using money meant for a nonprofit to promote his political career.

Investigators say he used money to buy "Team Boyland'' shirts for community events, and directed staff to falsify invoices from the purchases.

He's also facing previous charges of soliciting bribes from undercover FBI agents, and unlawfully taking tens of thousands of dollars in mileage expenses and per diem payments.
