Ethics leak probe now in hands of Oswego County district attorney

by Carol Thompson

Oswego County District Attorney Gregory Oakes said Thursday that he will begin to gather information in regard to an ethics board leak that occurred late last year.

“At this point, I’m trying to gather information,” Oakes said.

He added that he will speak with the person who complained to get more background information.

During the March 26 meeting of the legislature’s Strategic Planning and Government Committee, members voted to pass the information to the district attorney for investigation.

Last year, a complaint was filed by former legislature Chairman Barry Leemann against Legislator Shawn Doyle. Doyle said he was contacted by a reporter two days prior to being notified that a complaint was filed against him.
