New York Republican will fight the case in court, but some employees not waiting around

The trial of Rep. Chris Collins is in February, but some of his staffers aren’t waiting on the legal system to run its course.

Half of Collins’ full-time staff have left since he was indicted in August 2018 on fraud charges. Seven of 14 full-time staffers — among them his deputy chief of staff, Michael Kracker, communications director Sarah Minkel, and health policy adviser, Charlotte Pineda — are no longer working in the office, according to payroll records from May 2019, the most recent filing available in the Legislative Resource Center.

For comparison, two of his fellow New York Republicans experienced fewer departures over that time frame. Rep. John Katko lost five full-time employees, one of whom is a shared employee. Nobody in the office of Rep. Tom Reed left during that period.

Collins’ office did not respond to an emailed request for comment. The lawmaker has denied the charges.

4. Nate McMurray is a kick-ass Democrat running against Chris Collins. Check him out & give him love.

He only lost in Western New York's 27th District by a few votes last time around. He's an authentic, straightforward, grass-roots Democrat that didn't get the Party's help in 2016. Please help him kick the odious Chris Collins out of office and turn Western New York Blue! He's the real deal, and the hardest-working candidate out there.
