Looks Like Denenberg’s Campaign Has Gone To The Dogs

Long Island Democrat David Denenberg has dropped out of the race for state Senate, after recent accusations that the Nassau County Legislator fraudulently billed his own law firmDavidoff, Hutcher & Citron—over $2 million for non-existent case work.

According to published reports, Denenberg stated, “my family, the electorate, the campaign and this position are way too important to subject myself to such outrageous allegations and negative attacks against me personally. Therefore I withdraw from the race. “

Following news of the impending lawsuit, James Moriarty, a campaign spokesman for GOP-candidate Michael Venditto, called state Supreme Court allegations “truly disturbing.”

“[The Venditto camp] trusts that the U.S. Attorney’s office in Brooklyn, which is reviewing that matter, will do a thorough investigation of these very serious allegations,” Moriarty said.

With Denenberg out of the race, Long Island Democrats are scrambling to find a suitable candidate to run against Venditto this November.
