The Westchester Integrity Committe applauds US Attorney Michael Garcia.
This year GOP State Senator Serafin Maltise from Queens has added Giulio Cavallo to his payroll for an estimated $50,000 a year as a part-time consultant for medical and Italian issues. This only bolsters the fact that the New York State Republican Committee is again attempting to acquire the Independence Party’s endorsement of Senator Nick Spano, a Republican. How can he be a consultant for medical issues if he is not a licensed medical doctor, or is this a no-show job to curry political favor?
Mr. Cavallo for several years now has used his power and influence to negotiate deals for not only judicial candidates wishing to seek his party’s endorsement for Supreme and County Court other candidates in the county of Westchester.
Mr. Cavallo does this by frequently throwing lavish fundraisers, expecting all candidates, incumbents and otherwise, to not only buys one or two tickets, but at times tables as well. All the funds raised by these fundraisers go to the Independence Club, not the party.
In the County of Westchester there is a democratic enrollment advantage of over 100,000 voters.
This advantage gives Giulio Cavallo absolute control over the Republican Party and that leads to absolute corruption.
Not only should this be an embarrassment to the Republican Party, it is without question political corruption, in my opinion.
It is clear that Giulio Cavallo has been acting with dual roles in the Party and the Club. He also calls himself a medical doctor. I have contacted the NYS Dept of Education and confirmed that he is not licensed or registered as a medical doctor. We will ask that the NYS Education Dept conduct an investigation as well.
The Party under its current leadership has no platform, no political philosophy, no candidates and its only agenda is for political and personal gain.
When I was the chairman of the Westchester County Independence Party, endorsements of candidates for political office were considered and based upon qualified candidates that were best suited for the position. It was never about the sale of endorsements to the highest bidder.
I also call upon all elected officials throughout this great County and State to stand tall and have integrity, because this will all come to an end.
I promise the people of Westchester County that I will do everything within my power to see that ethical and responsible leadership is restored to the Westchester Independence Party of our county and back-door political dealings are removed from the hands of these types of people.
The time has come for integrity in Westchester County Politics and I am committed to change for good and responsible government.

I applaud any party or parties that seek to investigate the corruption in Westchester politics, especially those with ties to Cavallo. His ties run deep in Westchester and he has singlehandedly benefitted from putting various elected officals into office---his campaign contributions are seen as only a token to be given for in exchange of lucrative deals---usually in exchange for real estate developments. He has ruined communities and all in the name of corruption---so keep on investigating him and his cronies: Nick Spano, Zehy Jereis, and Stephen J Malfitano.
