DA Seeks Special Prosecutor for WFP Probe

The Staten Island District Attorney is confirming he's sought a special prosecutor to investigate the Working Families Party and that the year-long request has still not be answered.

In a statement, his spokesman Peter Spencer explains:

“On Feb. 22, 2010, Richmond County District Attorney Daniel M. Donovan Jr. filed an application with New York City Courts’ Deputy Chief Administrative Judge Fern A. Fisher for a special prosecutor to investigate possible violations of the state election law, local campaign finance law and other related criminality on Staten Island. As far as we know, that application is still before the judge and under seal.”
