Panel Blasts State Lawmakers’ Refusal To Disclose Data

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York’s anti-corruption commission says the refusal of lawmakers to provide outside employment information, including the names of private law firm clients, is “ethically repugnant.”

The commission is reacting to the Assembly Democrats and Senate Republican saying Friday they won’t turn over the detailed records of their private work.

The Commission to Investigate Public Corruption created by Gov. Andrew Cuomo had asked for the information. It says it will now explore all remaining options, including subpoenas to the Legislature.

The Legislature’s rejection of the request creates a conflict between lawmakers and Cuomo as they plan for a 2014 legislative session and election year.

Attorneys for the Legislature quoted Cuomo from months ago when he called existing financial disclosures tough and aggressive. The Legislature argued Friday that no further disclosure is needed or legal.
