County Executive Adam Bello is calling on Ernest Flagler-Mitchell to Resign


Monroe County Executive Adam Bello is calling on the Republicans in control of the County Legislature to call a special meeting and adopt measures holding Legislator Ernest Flagler-Mitchell accountable for his behavior.

Bello says Flagler-Mitchell violated the public’s trust and must resign immediately.

Bello says the legislature's failure to approve censure and ethics reform resolutions empowers him.

Flagler-Mitchell was found to have violated the ethics code when he sent an explicit photo to a woman who is not his wife.

A district attorney's report released yesterday says he used his public standing to seek out women, and send them explicit photos and messages.

Only some said their relationship was consensual.

One says Flagler-Mitchell paid her for sex.

Others said he paid their bills for them.
