Teachout calls for investigation into LICH sale

‘‘Classic corruption’’

Statewide “whistleblower tour” brings Teachout to Long Island College Hospital

“The closing of LICH and the process through which the sale happened -- a sale where a health facility becomes a real estate development – is classic corruption,” said New York gubernatorial candidate Zephyr Teachout.

Joining Ms. Teachout at the demonstration outside LICH was Doug Biviano, candidate for the Democratic Party primary in the 52nd State Assembly District race.

Mr. Biviano told The Brooklyn Daily Eagle that he looked forward to Ms. Teachout drawing attention to the “special interest relationships, the power grabs behind all this,” referring to the closure and the sale of LICH to a luxury housing developer. Mr. Biviano added that there was reason to worry about the close relationships between the “political machine,” Mayor Bill de Blasio and the Working Families Party, Brooklyn Democratic County boss Frank Seddio and his law partner and SUNY attorney Frank Carone, according to The Brooklyn Daily Eagle's report.
