Assembly Ethics Committee Drops Unsubstantiated Charges Against Greg Ball
ALBANY, NY -- The New York State Assembly Committee on Ethics and Guidance discarded the unsubstantiated and frivolous sexual harassment allegations made against Assemblyman Greg Ball (R-Patterson) by a former employee.
The committee found that a violation of the Assembly's sexual harassment/retaliation policy "was not established." It also determined that "prohibited conduct under the policy has not been established, and thus, no action is recommended." Download Ethics_Comm_Letter.pdf

"This sound decision by the Ethics Committee vindicates Assemblyman Ball who has been the victim of a vicious smear campaign to tarnish his reputation because he's been an outspoken and fearless advocate for taxpayers," said Adam D. Kramer, spokesman for the Republican Assembly Campaign Committee.
"This is a tremendous victory for not only Greg Ball, but also for anyone who cares about justice being served," said Kramer.
"I think this decision is the final nail in John Degnan's coffin as the failed former Brewster Mayor has waged a truly reprehensible and ultimately losing battle against Assemblyman Ball," said Kramer.
"The voters have seen through Degnan's lies and now so to have the Assembly's Ethics Committee. Chalk this up as yet another big win for Assemblyman Greg Ball," concluded Kramer.
