Brodsky seeks drug-surveillance letters from rival Rice

Assemb. Richard Brodsky (D-Westchester) has said he's seeking letters issued by rival attorney general candidate and Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice that went to motorists whose cars were seen in drug-surveillance areas.

A critic in debates of the program that included this tactic in Hempstead, Brodsky said Friday she hadn't responded to his freedom-of-information request "and I am going to pursue it."

But top Rice deputy Meg Reiss said later Friday that the office indeed responded "in full" that afternoon to Brodsky's request - "far ahead of the statutory time outlined by the law" and despite Brodsky's "failure to direct his request to the appropriate authority."

She said the request was forwarded to her office from Rice's campaign.
