WASHINGTON, DC – From Congressman Sempolinski:
Congressman Joe Sempolinski signed onto a letter with the Republican Delegation of NY to demand that Attorney General Merrick Garland immediately investigate Governor Hochul’s use of tax dollars to purchase Covid-19 test kits from one of her biggest campaign donors.
“Governor Hochul’s use of taxpayers’ dollars to purchase Covid test’s from one of her largest campaign donors reeks of pay-to-play,” said Sempolinski. “It appears that the Governor, like her predecessor, will use Covid-19 for political gain. That is why my colleagues and I have sent a letter to Attorney General Garland to demand an immediate and thorough investigation into what has occurred. We must have transparency and answers if we are ever going to clean up the stain of Albany corruption.”
