Interesting editorial in Newsday about Westchester DA’s “housekeeper mess:”
It’s pretty clear that politics is at the root of the controversy over whether Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore pulled strings to help a former live-in housekeeper receive public benefits.
But it doesn’t excuse the county’s chief prosecutor from answering some basic questions, especially given her role as head of the state’s Joint Commission on Ethics, a position she was appointed to in 2011 by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo.
In fact, it’s the best way for her, and the public, to get the truth and end this circus.
