Astorino Hiding From Federal Monitor

One month ago, a judge ordered Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino to sit for a sworn deposition because he has been lying to the public about a housing desegregation lawsuit. Astorino has been under fire from a federal monitor as well as U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara who has said that Astorino has made “numerous false and misleading statements.”

“It’s been a month now since Rob Astorino was ordered to sit down for a sworn deposition about violating federal anti-discrimination laws. It’s time for Astorino to come clean and testify under oath about why he’s wasted millions of taxpayer dollars fighting petty battles over his discriminatory housing policies. When is Astorino going to testify and will he notify the public when he does?” — Peter Kauffmann, NYSDC spokesman
