Pigeon, Two Associates, to Face Felony Election Law Complaints

Long-anticipated election law complaints against Buffalo political operative G. Steven Pigeon and two others are expected to be lodged Wednesday in State Supreme Court.

Three sources familiar with the situation say Pigeon and two long-time associates ‑ Kristy L. Mazurek and David B. Pfaff ‑ will face felony complaints of election law violations. Another source indicated State Supreme Court Justice Donald F. Cerio Jr., a Madison County jurist assigned to the case, has reserved a local court room for proceedings at 11 a.m.

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman’s office would not comment Tuesday. But it is anticipated that the charges involve the state’s investigation of two and half years into the 2013 local and county elections and a Pigeon-connected political committee called the WNY Progressive Caucus.

One source familiar with the charges say they will revolve around the County Legislature candidacies of Richard A. Zydel and Wes Moore, as well as the Amherst supervisor candidacy of Council Member Mark A. Manna.
