Broome County Democrats are asking for an ethics investigation after Republican County Executive Debra Preston showed up at the recent campaign kickoff for Sheriff David Harder wearing a Sheriff Deputy’s uniform.

Sheriff Harder says Preston did not violate any law.

Harder said he was not aware of Preston’s plans to wear a Deputy uniform prior to her appearance at his re-election announcement.

Democratic Committee Chairman, James Testani says the use of any county property at a partisan event is in violation of the county ethics code.

An official in Preston’s office said the County Executive has a sense of humor and thought it would be funny to wear the uniform.

Testani countered that law enforcement is no joke.
