Dear Mr. Schneiderman,
I am writing to you regarding the incredible long-term corruption that is and has been going on within the New York State Independence Party.
Party Chair Frank Mackay has turned the party into his personal bank, ATM and family employment agency.
Mr. Mackay has been directly involved in the felony conviction of John Haggerty in the Manhattan money laundering case. Mr. Mackay has been involved in numerous schemes to kick back money and in-kind services to himself and his wife Kristen. I have enclosed several New York Post articles outlining and detailing these corrupt schemes.
Additionally, Mr. Mackay has taken $3,000 per week salary from his Chairmans account, while the IP Treasury has been drained and has little or nothing on account. (I have attached Board of Election disclosure statements for your review in this matter).
Next, there are no state withholding tax entries, no federal taxes withheld nor medicare/medicaid payments or social security withholdings noted. Because of this tax underreporting, I ask your office make a referral to the New York State Dept. of Taxation & Finance for a full audit of Frank and Kristen Mackay.
Lastly, it has come to my attention that Mr. Mackay and his committee endorsed you and you were the candidate of the Independence Party in your last election. Therefore, to avoid any conflict of interest in these matters, I respectfully request you appoint or assign a SPECIAL INVESTIGATOR to these matters. I know you are a man of high integrity and I trust you will do the right thing to get to the bottom of this incredible corruption ongoing in the New York Independence Party.
I have included all newspaper articles regarding Mr. Mackays corrupt actions and also included a copy of my complaint to your Public Integrity Bureau. A separate copy of this form has also been forwarded to your New York City office.
If you and/or your staff have any further questions for me regarding this on-going corruption in the New York State Independence Party, please contact me at:
