Nassau: Haber slams Suozzi in second ad; video below

Adam Haber, the millionaire school board member opposing former County Executive Thomas Suozzi for the Democratic nomination for the job this year, launched his second TV ad whacking Suozzi on Tuesday, saying Suozzi had “misused taxpayer dollars for his personal gain.”

The ad cited a $65,000 raise for Suozzi, half a million dollars spent on police detectives as his personal chauffeurs, and raising taxes $120 million and leaving the county with massive debt.

Haber also has been knocking the former county executive’s ongoing defense of employers who are allegedly denying workers  hard-earned wages. Neither Suozzi nor his campaign officials offered immediate comment on the commercial. Here it is posted below:
