Gillibrand Still Supporting Assemblywoman Under Multiple Investigations

Earlier in the campaign season, Naomi Rivera mailed out an endorsement from Kirsten Gillibrand which read in part…

“Naomi is working 24-7.  You see her in the neighborhood talking to seniors, to moms in schools, to families struggling to build a better future.” 

Nowadays however, you’re more likely to see Naomi Rivera showing off her “lacy red bra” on Facebook, or  working 24-7 to fight off four separate investigations by the Bronx District Attorney’s Office, the state Attorney General, the Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE), or even the FBI.

Rivera is embroiled in a scandal – or scandals – in which she is alleged to have inappropriately employed one boyfriend, while another boyfriend working for a non-profit that she helped fund used the charities money for their romantic dinners and campaign expenses.

Associating with somebody being probed for multiple allegations of impropriety and ethics violations may not be a wise campaign move for Ms. Gillibrand – yet here she is.

Gillibrand however, is not backing down – reiterating support for Rivera to Capitol New York just yesterday.

“A campaign spokesperson for Gillibrand told me today that the senator still supports Rivera…”

Gillibrand should be denouncing such corruption in New York politics, but she remains firmly in her stance backing Rivera.
