Voters split on release of info in Pirro wiretapping probe

Posted: Updated:

People appear to be split on whether a federal probe surrounding attorney general candidate Jeanine Pirro should be front page news.

Earlier in the week, Pirro revealed that she is the subject of a federal investigation into a possible violation of eavesdropping laws. Pirro suspected her lobbyist husband of cheating and spoke with former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik, a personal security consultant, about possibly bugging her husband?s boat. A statewide polls shows that 55 percent of voters think if Pirro broke the law, it should be made public. However, 41 percent of voters think Pirro's latest problems should be kept a private matter. Four percent said they didn?t know.

In Pirro?s hometown of Harrison, many residents are standing by her. Some admire her for keeping her family together, while others think her husband is tarnishing her career While former Mayor Rudy Guiliani pulled out of a fundraiser for Pirro scheduled for next month, Governor George Pataki (R-NY) has agreed to support Pirro at the fundraiser.
