Goo-Goos Press Spitzer to Comply

Citizens Union, Common Cause, the League of Women Voters/NYS and NYPIRG just sent out a joint statement urging Eliot Spitzer to direct his aides to cooperate state Ethics Commission's investigation.

The letter does not address the request by a state Senate Republican to have Attorney General Andrew Cuomo named as a special prosecutor to revisit the matter.

“Our groups urge you to direct your staff to fully cooperate with the Ethics Commission and voluntarily appear before it," the letter says. "Such a declaration, in our view, would further transparency and openness in state government.”

The full letter is attached below.
