Two NY state senators – one sitting and one retired – have been indicted by an Albany County grand jury on felony election law violations. Senator Robert G. Ortt, a North Tonawanda Republican, faces 3 felony counts of offering a false instrument for filing and is also accused of arranging a deal for his wife to be paid $20,000 for graphic design work that she did not do.
