Eileen Napolitano calls out Norma Gonsalves on ethics


The Democratic legislative candidate against Nassau Presiding Officer Norma Gonsalves (R-East Meadow) called Tuesday for an amendment to GOP-proposed ethics legislation that would be named after and apply to Gonsalves herself.

“If Legislator Gonsalves wants to actually get serious about ethics reforms, what about adding the ‘Gonsalves Amendent’ to her toothless bill,” said Eileen Napolitano, who is expected to be nominated by the Nassau Democratic Party this month to run for Gonsalves’ 13th District seat.

The amendment “would bar elected officials who consistently violate and disregard New York State campaign finance law from seeking or holding public office,” Napolitano said in a news release.
