State Sen. Nick Scutari (D-22) abruptly called for an executive session.
The Senate Judiciary Committee just disppeared behind closed doors following Scutari’s pointed question to Kwon.
The question concerned a business called KLC Marketing, which Scutari alleged is owned by Kwon’s mother.
An internet search of KLC Marketing showed a business located at a White Plains address that formally belonged to Kwon’s parents. The family sold the home in August 2010.
Kwon said he didn’t know about it, at which point Scutari called for the senators, Kwon, and one senior staff advisor, to go into executive session.
Kwon didn’t go behind closed doors and his attorney, standing next to the nominee, refused comment.
To speculation that Democratic opposition was crumbling amid appearances in the room by Kevin O’Dowd, chief of staff to Gov. Chris Christie, who grabbed the ear of state Sen. Ray Lesniak (D-20) and others from the governor’s office, a GOP source said no.
“They appear more united than ever,” the source said.
