Brothers Removed From Judicial Offices

A news release from the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct reports the removal from judicial office of two brothers, one sitting in Westchester County, the other in Bronx County. The Westchester judge attempted to derfaud his campaign manager by altering the terms of a loan repayment agreement for a $250,000 loan to his campaign. He failed to repay within nine months as agreed and later gave false and  misleading testimony about the tranasaction. Both brothers submitted various loan applications that omitted assets and liabilities, evincing"deceptive, deceitful and dishonest" behavior. Both also filed  materially incomplete financial disclosure statements with the Ethics Commission.

The decisions are linked here and here. (Mike Frisch)
