Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas has opened an investigation into allegations that an Oyster Bay official improperly solicited campaign contributions from town employees who received raises, a spokesman for Singas said Monday. "We began an investigation last week when we learned of these allegations," spokesman Brendan Brosh said in a statement. On Monday, Sen. Kevin Thomas (D-Levittown) alleged at a news conference outside Oyster Bay Town Hall South in Massapequa that the solicitations sent in September from Deputy Town Supervisor Gregory Carman Jr. targeted town employees and asked for different amounts of money based on their salary level. "The higher the salary of the employee, the higher the political donation request from Carman," Thomas said. Thomas called the solicitations part of a "shameful, pay-to-play political scheme." The letters sought contributions of $250, $500 or $750 to the Farmingdale Republican Committee, of which Carman is the leader, according to copies of the letter provided by Thomas. CONTINUE READING
