Assemblyman Steve Katz Slams JCOPE for Silver/Lopez Findings

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 20, 2013

Contact: Joseph Ahearn, (914) 774-6856


A statement from Assemblyman Steve Katz (R,C,I-Yorktown)

In another display of Albany insider politics, JCOPE (Joint Commission on Public Ethics) did not find anything legally or ethically wrong with the actions of Speaker Sheldon Silver in his attempted cover-up of the Vito Lopez sexual harassment scandal. Anybody outside of Albany can tell you that using taxpayer dollars in an attempt to hide an instance of sexual harassment is morally and ethically wrong, and it should be legally wrong as well. We cannot continue to have one set of rules for elected officials and one set of rules for everyone else.
