In the Democratic scramble for the attorney general nomination, Sean Coffey today touts a Long Island endorsement -- from Brookhaven Town Supervisor Mark Lesko.

Lesko, a former assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of New York, said Coffey "stands tall above the competition as the best qualified to produce real reform -- from Albany to Wall Street to Long Island...a real leader with integrity and compassion who understands the needs of New Yorkers."

“Moreover, Sean Coffey is one of the best attorneys not only in New York but in the country, having successfully prosecuted some of the biggest investor fraud cases in history and winning billions of dollars from Wall Street for hard-working shareholders. I know he will continue to be an aggressive cop on the beat as New York’s next Attorney General. "

For his part, Coffey said: "His endorsement is a sign of the real excitement and momentum I’m seeing across the state for my candidacy and commitment to real reform....Mark and I share a deep commitment to principles of justice and fairness, rooted in our days at Georgetown Law Center where we both had the honor to count the late Father Robert Drinan as a mentor and friend.”
