PRESS RELEASE: REP. TENNEY RESPONDS TO SKELOS VERDICT
New Hartford NY- In response to a conviction on federal corruption charges of yet another self-serving Albany politician, former Senate Majority leader Dean Skelos, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney released the following statement:
“Albany’s culture of corruption isn’t about party, it’s about an abuse of power. Today, Mr. Skelos rejoins the infamous group of convicted politicians and Cuomo cronies that maintain Albany’s reputation as a national embarrassment,” said Congresswoman Claudia Tenney. “I renew my call for Albany politicians like Anthony Brindisi, who enabled this unprecedented line of convictions, to take up critical ethics reform that will save New York taxpayers from more career politicians and their costly schemes.”
Directly following the federal corruption charges in 2015, Claudia Tenney called on Senator Dean Skelos to step down from his position as Majority leader.
Claudia Tenney has a long record of tackling corruption. In Albany, Tenney was the first to call for disgraced former Speaker Silver to resign after it was revealed he used taxpayer money to cover up the sexual harassment of innocent women in the Assembly. Claudia Tenney introduced a bold series of ethics reform to clean up Albany that were ignored by liberal politicians and Cuomo enablers like Anthony Brindisi. In Congress, Rep. Tenney is leading the fight against Washington’s rigged system by holding corrupt politicians accountable and fighting for term limits.
