Prosecutors Get Legal on Anti-Cop Mayor
Prosecutors have indicted Rochester, New York Mayor Lovely Warren, over campaign finance charges stemming from the Democrat’s last re-election. Warren has faced criticism over her handling of the investigation into the death of Daniel Prude in Rochester Police custody. (Fox News)
Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley announced that Warren is facing two felonies, including scheme to defraud in the first degree and violation of election law. Also charged were Warren’s campaign treasurer, Albert Jones Jr., and the treasurer of her political action committee, Rosalind Brooks-Harris.
Warren has not been arrested but will be processed, Doorley said. If convicted, she would be removed from office.
“This could be a long process and we anticipate that there could be challenges along the way so I don’t think this will be anything resolved quickly,” Doorley said during a news briefing.
Warren has called the investigation a “political witch hunt.” Her lawyer did not return messages from Fox News seeking comment.
