Lawyers Paid With Campaign Funds, Libous Confirms
7/17/2012 (Updated 7/18/2012 3:44:30 AM)Tuesday night, during his Telephone Town Meeting we asked Senator Tom Libous about that alleged ethics probe involving his son's employment at downstate law firm that works with lobbyists.
Libous confirms that he's spent campaign funds--which state law permits-- for legal advice concerning a possible ethics probe.
But he stands by previous statements that he had nothing to do with his son getting the job with the law firm.
Libous blames Binghamton Mayor Matt Ryan, in part, for pushing for the probe--saying it was politically motivated.
At the time, Ryan indicated that he might run for Libous' seat.
