Broome DA Named To Public Corruption Panel

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Broome County District Attorney Gerald Mollen has been appointed to a state commission established to investigate public corruption.

Governor Andrew Cuomo named about two-dozen people to the panel set up under the Moreland Act.

Cuomo moved to form the commission after lawmakers failed to act on major ethics reforms during a legislative session marred by several high-profile corruption cases.

The governor had warned legislators of his intention to establish the panel if they opted not to deal with what he described as “systemic public corruption” in state government.

Mollen has been Broome County district attorney for more than 25 years.

The commission will have subpoena power to compel legislators to testify and provide records.
