STATEMENT FROM MICHAEL HENRY ON THE ARREST of LT. GOVERNOR BRIAN BENJAMIN

New York, NY — Attorney General candidate Michael Henry today issued a statement after the arrest of Lt. Governor Brian Benjamin:

“Albany’s broad daylight corruption must end. Today’s arrest of Lt. Governor Brian Benjamin in a bribery scheme once again diminishes public confidence in government.

It is disgraceful that my opponent, the current Attorney General, has done nothing but seek headlines, while letting corruption fester in the halls of Albany. Brian Benjamin shared her slate and despite multiple reports of unethical and potentially illegal behavior that raised the eyebrows of anyone who used ‘Google search’ she remained silent.

The people of New York are the ones with the power to change this culture once and for all by voting out the corrupt and the protectors of corruption this year.”
