I was immediately told that Jessica Cherry (Sen. Bonacic's counsel) does not accept applications for oral testimony, only written submissions.
That is not what the public notice for the confirmation hearing of Janet Difiore on NYS Senate's webpage says, right now:
I will report on this blog how the NYS Senate answers my FOIL request.
If all who are allowed to testify in the confirmation hearing of Janet DiFiore are attorneys, they are interested witnesses, because their financial well-being rests in their law licenses, and thus they will be in fear of losing their livelihoods if they testify against Janet DiFiore, while she will be confirmed despite such testimony; so, of course, they will be testifying in support of her, and such a policy of invitations for oral testimony, picking for invitation only those who support the nomination and not those who oppose it, smacks of corruption, Senator Bonacic.
By the way, at about 9:30 am today (when I called Sen. Bonacic' office), the secretary told me that Jessica Cherry will call me back, because at that time she was "on the other line".
3 hours later, Jessica Cherry still did not call me back.
That must be one long telephone conversation - at taxpayers' expense.
