The Working Families Party today released the following statement:
In December 2009, we announced that the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York was conducting an investigation concerning the Working Families Party and Data & Field Services, Inc. We were advised last night that the U.S. Attorney’s Office has decided to close its investigation without the filing of any charges.
The Working Families Party and Data & Field Services cooperated fully with the extensive investigation conducted by the government. We appreciate the professionalism of the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Of course, the NYC Campaign Finance Board, as part of the post-election audit process of campaigns that participate in the public campaign finance system, is auditing the campaigns that contracted for services with Data & Field Services in 2009.
We are gratified that the federal investigation has concluded and look forward to continuing our work for good schools, good jobs, and good government.
