A high-ranking official from Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy’s administration inappropriately obtained and edited a report on county hate crime, according to a complaint submitted to the Suffolk County Ethics Commission by Legis. DuWayne Gregory last week.
While Levy denies any wrongdoing, the seriousness of these claims merits an investigation.
In partnership with the national advocacy group America’s Voice, Long Island Wins is organizing an electronic fax campaign to the respective heads of the Suffolk Legislature and the Ethics Commission.
