"Is Spano Willing to Put His Reputation on the Line?" – Rob Astorino
White Plains, NY — "If County Executive Andy Spano is so sure that suspicious signatures used to hand him the Conservative Party line in the tight race for Westchester County Executive are valid, and not forgeries, 'he should put his reputation on the line and publicly stand by them,' County Executive candidate Rob Astorino (R-I) today said.
For Mr Astorino the issue revolves what some Conservative Party member contend are "more than 80 signatures are forgeries."
A lawsuit is pending in New York State Supreme Court over the signatures, and the Westchester District Attorney's office yesterday notified the New York State Attorney General's office about the allegations.
"Mr. Spano publicly scoffed at allegations that these signatures are forgeries yesterday-on the very same day when the Westchester District Attorney notified the State Attorney General about the matter," Mr. Astorino said. "If Mr. Spano is so sure these signatures are valid, let him vouch for them. I challenge him to do that publicly."
