Joe Damelio, counsel to friends of Lovely Warren, released a statement on Wednesday:
“Today, for the third separate time since the end of May, we received notification of leaks to the media regarding an alleged report from the State Board of Elections and the District Attorney’s office about political finance accounts associated with the Mayor’s campaign. Still after three separate news stories at no time have I, the Mayor’s attorney, been contacted by the District Attorney’s office about this investigation.
Since 2017, news stories have been reported about similar alleged communications between the State Board of Elections and the District Attorney’s office. It is now 2020. We look forward to the conclusion of the DA’s investigation.
The Mayor in her official capacity, and as a private person, did absolutely nothing wrong. And, when this investigation is done, it will be shown that no money is missing.”
