Common Cause NY Responds to AG/Comptroller Indictment of Huntley Staffer
The indictment against Senator Huntley's staff is another disturbing reminder that member items are a prime target for abuse by unscrupulous individuals. Perhaps Senator Huntley will consider a bill to eliminate member items, and in so doing, the opportunity to abuse the public trust. Common Cause applauds the Attorney General and Comptroller for their commitment to public integrity, and urges them to continue their efforts," said Susan Lerner, Executive Director of Common Cause NY.
