Albany County District Attorney David Soares has refused to turn over to the New York Post transcripts of testimony in an investigation of the fired state police superintendent and a aide to Gov. Eliot Spitzer, despite a binding ruling by the county’s public information appeals officer and a finding by the state’s Open Government Committee director. Soares’ office denied the information request, claiming the records couldn’t be disclosed because they were part of a law-enforcement investigation. (6/2/08)
