CSEA seeks state ethics probe over appearance of impropriety at state Lottery
CSEA has formally requested the state Joint Commission on Public Ethics to investigate the appearance of impropriety at the New York State Lottery.

Former Lottery Director Gordon Medenica, now a consultant at GTech, negotiated last year (while still Lottery director) a $25 million deal with GTech that essentially privatizes the public jobs long held by Lottery employees. This move is just another way Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s policies are eroding middle-class jobs.

“This has the appearance of impropriety on the face of it and the governor knows it,” CSEA President Danny Donohue said. “We will only see more of this if the Cuomo administration continues its path of eroding public jobs while playing fast and loose with private contractors at public expense.”
