Cuomo Appoints New Head For Troubled Ethics Board

Apr 23, 2013

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is replacing the chairwoman of the state ethics board he created more than a year ago with a lawyer who once represented Wall Street swindler Bernard Madoff.

Cuomo says lawyer Daniel Horwitz, a former assistant district attorney in Manhattan, will take over from Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore as head of the Joint Commission on Public Ethics.

Cuomo says DiFiore is being replaced because she's running for re-election as Westchester's top prosecutor.
