The chair of the New York GOP Committee is calling for an ethics investigation into Lieutenant Governor Duffy.
The investigation stems from a report last week where the Albany Times Union says Duffy applied and interviewed for the top job at the Rochester Business Alliance.
GOP chairman Ed Cox says state ethics laws require government officials to tell their supervisor when they apply for a private sector job. Cox is requesting a full investigation by the state's new anti-corruption group, the Moreland Commission.
News10NBC reached out to the governor's office for a response. They declined to comment.
The New York State Democratic Committee released a statement saying: "If the Moreland Commission should look at anything, it should be Ed Cox sitting at the table with Malcolm Smith and presiding over a party that tried to sell its mayoral party line for the largest bribe. Mr. Cox has brought his own personal brand of Nixonian corruption to the state GOP and has never come clean about his role in the entire Malcolm Smith affair. Before he calls for anyone else to be investigated, he should, as the saying goes, admit what did he know and when did he know it."
