“Spano, a former Westchester county executive, was appointed as a Democratic In the interview, Spano defended the Board of Elections after commissioners were grilled by the Moreland Commission over whether it was adequately overseeing election law violations, saying that before the enforcement counsel post was created, the staff wasn’t there to go after the incorrect or potentially illegal filings.”

“Now when the Moreland Commission did their fact-finding or whatever they did on the Board of Elections, a lot of it was true, but a lot of it was unfair, okay?” Spano said. “First of all, they didn’t have the staff to do this. We had, I don’t know, how many judgments were out there—oh, thousands—where we already had the judgments but we couldn’t get any money from anywhere. We couldn’t go after anybody. Now we go after everybody.”
