Assemblymember O’Donnell ordered to undergo retraining

Out gay Assemblymember Daniel O’Donnell of Manhattan has been ordered to undergo retraining after an investigation by the Ethics Committee concluded that he violated the lower chamber’s policy against harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.

The Ethics Committee appointed independent investigator Danielle J. Marlow to probe O’Donnell, who represents Manhattan’s Upper West Side, after the committee received reports of potential violations of the policy, according to a letter delivered by the Ethics Committee to Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie on Sept. 11.
