Senator Thomas Libous Answers Charges

New York State Senator Thomas Libous  of Binghamton appeared on this morning’s Binghamton Now program on News Radio 1290 WNBF hosted by Bob Joseph.  Speaking by phone from New York City where he is undergoing cancer treatment Libous, a Republican, mantains his innocence on charges he lied to the FBI.  Libous said ”I am not guilty of the charges.  I’m very confident of winning this case.”

Libous is accused of making false statements to the FBI.  Prosecutors allege the Senator used his influence to get his son a job with a well-known law firm in Westchester County in exchange for promises of work being steered to them.  Libous, who has served in the state senate since 1989, is accused of making false statements to the FBI in June 2010.  Federal officials were questioning him on how his son, Matthew Libous, landed the job with the politically-connected Westchester County law firm.  Matthew Libous is also facing federal charges. He is accused of impeding an investigation by the Internal Revenue Service and filing false tax returns.
