New York State's Republican Party chairman called for an investigation into whether or not Lieutenant Governor Bob Duffy violated state ethics laws.
Ed Cox asked the Moreland Act Commission Monday to look into Bob Duffy's interview with the Rochester Business Alliance, a private sector job.
Cox wants the commission to determine whether or not Duffy disclosed his interview to Governor Cuomo. If he didn't, Cox said it would be a direct violation of the law.
Duffy interviewed for the top job at the RBA after Sandy Parker announced her retirement as the executive director. She has since announced she will stay on longer than originally
In response, the New York State Democratic Party sent a statement saying:
"If the Moreland Commission should look at anything, it should be Ed Cox sitting at the table with Malcolm Smith and presiding over a party that tried to sell its mayoral party line for the largest bribe.
Mr. Cox has brought his own personal brand of Nixonian corruption to the state GOP and has never come clean about his role in the entire Malcolm Smith affair."
