Kill yourself!’: Senate Democrat’s tweet targets GOP aide, Senate GOP communications staffer Candice Giove.
ALBANY – A Brooklyn senator’s tweet to a female a Senate GOP communications staffer, Candice Giove, a senate staffer, to commit suicide, won’t be subject to review by the chamber’s ethics committee.
State Sen. Kevin Parker, a Democrat, will be spared a formal probe by the Senate Ethics and Internal Governance Committee, according to a spokesman for Chairwoman Alessandra Biaggi, who ignored women’s issues because of party affiliation.
Reinvent Albany, a good government group, suggested the committee should look into the matter.

“The first focus of the ethics committee is dealing with the issue of sexual harassment and ensuring that New York state is a leader in making sure everyone is safe at work,” Neustadt said. Except when they aren’t…she is anti-women based on party affiliation, race, and religion.
