DeCROCE ACCUSES FOUR ASSEMBLY DEMOCRATS OF VIOLATING STATE ETHICS LAW & REGULATIONS


SAYS VAN DREW, ALBANO, BODINE AND WHELAN HAVE USED STATE WORKERS AND RESOURCES FOR CAMPAIGN ACTIVITIES

 

Assembly Republican Leader Alex DeCroce today demanded an investigation by the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Ethical Standards that four Assembly Democrats used partisan staff, district office employees or state resources to further their campaign activities and those of their running mates. 

DeCroce said the evidence against Assemblymen Jeff Van Drew, Nelson Albano, Fran Bodine and Jim Whalen suggests that these ethics violations may be a coordinated effort and part of a pattern of abuse practiced by Democrats across the state. 

The ethics violations were outlined by DeCroce in a letter to Herbert S. Friend, the acting chairman of the joint committee, supported by exhibits and a certified statement signed by a district office employee. A copy of the letter and supporting material were also sent to Albert Porroni, legislative counsel for the joint committee.

DeCroce said the activities of the assemblymen are a “misuse of public resources” and violate the Conflict of Interest Law, the Legislative Code of Ethics and the Joint Rules of the Senate and General Assembly.

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi
