Public Integrity Chief Quits

The head of New York’s Public Integrity Commission resigned yesterday, according to this Times report.

And Mr. [Herbert] Teitelbaum is not going quietly.

In a four-page letter, he urged the commissioners “to continue their principled stand in opposition to the governor’s call for their wholesale resignation.”

He said the governor’s calls for a shake-up were “an example of the very kind of pressure the commission’s enabling legislation sought to stem.”
