Going Where the Commission to Investigate Public Corruption Did NOT:

 

JOINT COMMISSION ON PUBLIC ETHICS
(JCOPE)

1.

CJA's June 27, 2013 ethics complaint
to NYS Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE)

"(1)   Conflict of interest ethics complaint against executive & legislative branch constitutional officers & employees whose grand larceny of the public fisc and other corrupt acts are particularized by CJA’s April 15, 2013 corruption complaint to U.S. Attorney Bharara;                
                   
(2)   Request for advisory opinion as to whether Senate and Assembly rules, vesting domineering powers in the Temporary Senate President and Assembly Speaker, create coercive and retaliatory conditions, substantially interfering with the ability of Senate and Assembly Members to discharge their constitutional duties, where doing so exposes the official misconduct of those leaders
"


2.
