On November 27, 2013, Jeremy Creelan, Special Counsel To The Governor and Senior Advisor on Ethics issued the following statement:

“The Republican Senate Campaign Committee has agreed to cooperate and comply with the Moreland Commission’s investigation. They join the Democratic Assembly Campaign Committee, which had previously agreed to comply. The Governor believes cooperation is by far the preferred course of action, vital to restoring the trust of the people of New York State, whose confidence was rightfully shaken after a slew of indictments in the Legislature last year.

”This cooperation belies the remaining holdouts’ theory justifying their non-compliance; namely separation of powers. If the Moreland Commission, empowered as Deputy Attorneys General, can investigate the Assembly and Senate as a whole for Election Law compliance, they can investigate individual members for the same compliance. Without a credible theory of non-compliance, the public will assume there is something to hide and that hurts everyone.”
