HAWLEY REACTS TO PERCOCO VERDICT
Written by WBTA STAFF on March 14, 2018
A Statement from Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) on the guilty verdict of former Cuomo aide Joe Percoco
“Today’s guilty verdict of Joe Percoco, someone the governor once called a ‘brother,’ shows that corruption and private influence has permeated even the most prominent in our government.
“True leaders take responsibility when their house is engulfed in turmoil, and yet the governor remains weak and vague on ethics reform.
“We have a perfect opportunity to start changing the culture here by passing meaningful ethics reform. However, Assembly leadership would rather pass nonsensical, worthless, one-house measures codifying abortion. Shameful.”
