Silver Thinks JCOPE Investigation is a Great Idea
August 29th, 2012

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is facing tremendous scrutiny for his role in settling sexual harassment claims against Assemblyman Vito Lopez. Everyone and their Governor has expressed interest in having the newly-formed Joint Commission on Public Ethics investigate the allegations against Lopez and the deal that led to his censure. You can now add Silver’s name to that list of people.

“I would welcome a JCOPE investigation, as a JCOPE inquiry would supersede any confidentiality agreements that exist and allow all of the facts to come out,” said Silver in a statement. ” Those facts will show that any decision by the Assembly to enter into any settlement agreement was both legal and ethical and made out of deference to the wishes of the complainants. In addition the Assembly has written to counsel in any previous settlement asking for a release from any confidentiality clauses that may exist so that we can legally and properly release to the public all information relating to any settlement and how it was reached.”
