Benjamin Late In Filing. Brian Benjamin has not filed his campaign finance report. It was due July 15th. The disgraced former Lieutenant Governor was forced to resign after being arrested. He is accused of fraud and finance improprieties. In January he reportedly had 1.5 Million on hand. There is concern he may be using what remains to pay his legal bills. The whole episode is an egregious blot on Hochul. She demonstrated colossal bad judgment and malfeasance in appointing him her second in command. She failed to properly vet him. At the time it was widely known he was under investigation. Benjamin Late in Filing. Voters take note of the scandal and its negative reflection on the Governor !!
