Kathleen M. Rice (born February 15, 1965 in New York City, New York) is the district attorney for Nassau County. On February 17, 2010, she announced her candidacy for the statewide office of attorney general, the seat vacated by Democrat Andrew Cuomo, who ran for governor in November.[1] Rice, however, was narrowly defeated by State Senator Eric Schneiderman on Tuesday, September 14, 2010, after receiving thirty-two percent of the vote.[2]

Rice is a 2014 Democratic and Working Families Party candidate seeking election to the U.S. House to represent the 4th Congressional District of New York.[3]

Controversies

First American donations

Questions have been raised concerning donations made to Kathleen Rice's state attorney general campaign by a company currently under the investigation of Andrew Cuomo's office as it could be seen as a conflict of interest should Rice be elected to the statewide position. According to an article published by the New York Daily News, Rice "received the maximum campaign contribution of $55,900 from Steven Napolitano, who heads a wholly-owned subsidiary of First American Corp."[4] First American Corporation was sued by the state attorney general's office in November 2007 after it had been discovered that the company let a bank select appraisers who then inflated the values that increased the market value of homes they owned.

Rice, who wants to be the state's next top law enforcer, is following in the footsteps of her potential predecessor as Andrew Cuomo himself has accepted nearly $136,000 in campaign contributions from executives of First American Title Insurance Company of New York, a subsidiary of First American. What is more is that $106,000 of those donations came from the subsidiary's president, Steven Napolitano, between January 2009 and May 2010.[5]

Teichman double-dipping

Albert Teichman, Chief Assistant to Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice, has been accused of double-dipping in the state's public employee pension program. Teichman has reportedly receiving a state pension check from the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office valued at $74,000 while he has been collecting an annual salary of $155,975 in Nassau County. He achieved this after he was granted an exemption by the State Civil Service Commission as dictated under Section 211 of the New York State Retirement and Social Security Law, which, in theory, is "supposed to be granted only in unique cases when no one but the recipient can do the job."[6] Critics argued that it is precisely these "211 waivers" that has caused the out of control costs of the state pension system.
