Klein Criticized Over Part-time Staffer Getting Benefits
This Daily News article criticizes State Senator Jeff Klein for providing a part-time staffer, who happens to also be his law partner, with health benefits. The article reports that Dominic Calderoni worked the minumum hours needed (910 a year) to receive the benefits. Mr. Calderoni stepped down from his position last week. While this arrangement raised eyebrows it did not violate any laws -- it also seems it is a common practice in Albany.
