Challenger Calls for Probe of Hempstead Sup’s Mailings


The Democratic candidate challenging Republican Hempstead Town Supervisor Don Clavin is calling on authorities to investigate what the challenger alleged is the illegal use of taxpayer-funded mailers that double as campaign literature. 

Jason Abelove, a Garden City-based employment law and discrimination attorney from Oceanside, called on Nassau County prosecutors, the county Board of Elections (BOE), the New York State Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JSCOPE), and the county comptroller’s office to investigate his allegations that Clavin’s office spent $5 million on about 70 mailers adorned with Clavin’s name, title and photo over the past two years.
