Suffolk DA inquires into Levy's disclosure forms

Suffolk D.A. Tom Spota's office is inquiring why Steve Levy files a different disclosure form from most county employees, as Sandra Peddie reports here. Levy says he is "outraged" by the "suggestion of something nefarious" and he was consistently instructed a state form was an adequate substitute for the county form.

While the story, posted earlier this afternoon, was making the rounds, Levy, who called a press "availability"' over potential local effects of the Gulf oil spill, made himself unavailable for questions on other topics. His statement was included in the news report.

Five days ago, Rick Lazio bested Levy and Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino at the Republican state convention for the  nomination for governor.
