"In your latest campaign ad, you look directly into the camera and tell New Yorkers that your Moreland Commission will 'investigate and prosecute wrongdoing.'
"Your Moreland Commission is toothless. It has no power to prosecute, and its report on public corruption won't be released for18 months.
"Meanwhile, there has been no complete criminal investigation of the Vito Lopez/Sheldon Silver affair. Vito Lopez may be the Democratic nominee for New York City Council in less than two months, and Sheldon Silver, who has never been officially investigated for even ethical violations, is still the Assembly Speaker.
"If, as you stated in your ad, 'trust is everything' to you, you will remove your misleading statement from this puff piece of a political ad and appoint a special prosecutor to deal with Vito Lopez and Sheldon Silver."
