Charges brought against four men arrested Monday in a widening city corruption probe include lurid claims that a top police official roomed with a prostitute during a Las Vegas trip as businessmen spent over $100,000 to ensure uniformed officers were available as their private security force.Earlier this month, federal prosecutors charged the head of the correction officers' union with taking kickbacks.The complaint said Harrington and an unidentified police chief let a businessman buy dinner once or twice a week for 18 months at expensive Manhattan restaurants, where bills ran $400 to $500 .Andrew Weinstein, Harrington's lawyer, said the charges against his client were politically motivated.The head of Grant's union declined to comment.Reichberg, Harrington and Grant were each charged with conspiracy to commit honest services wire fraud.
