Ethics panel faults Habay, 18 June 2004 [cached]
Jeff Habay violated state ethics laws by using legislative staffers to campaign for him while they were supposed to be working for the state, according to a harsh report released yesterday.He was ordered to pay nearly $13,000 in restitution.
The State Ethics Commission report called into question not only Habay's accounting and campaigning methods, but also his truthfulness.
Habay, 38, of Shaler, a deputy Republican whip, denied the assertions and said he's not paying restitution for now.He said he hopes to appeal the decision to Commonwealth Court.
The case has been referred to the state attorney general's office for possible prosecution, and also will be reviewed by the House Ethics Committee.
"Habay certainly has discretion as to management of staff.However, Habay may not use his position to direct district office employees to perform campaign or political activity during Commonwealth working hours, which is precisely what he did," the commission said.
Habay was on the offensive yesterday, blaming a handful of disgruntled former employees with whom he's had legal troubles dating back four years, as well as a Pittsburgh labor attorney who sits on the State Ethics Commission and the commission itself.
"They have some real dubious characters," Habay, a nine-year veteran of the Legislature, said of his former office workers.
He also suggested that the Ethics Commission dislikes him because he put his name to legislation that reformed the state's open records laws.
More than anyone, Habay blamed George Radich and his wife, Rebecca, of Shaler.
In 2002, the Radiches got the attention of the Bureau of Commissions, Elections and Legislation, claiming Habay had improperly recorded campaign expenses and failed to account for funds that were spent by his staff in 1998.
Habay said the Radiches were just sore over Rebecca's dismissal, but George Radich, an Allegheny County Port Authority employee, said Habay "needs to realize that he's responsible for his own actions, and he needs to stop blaming everyone else." Habay said the Radiches were just sore over Rebecca's dismissal, but George Radich, an Allegheny County Port Authority employee, said Habay "needs to realize that he's responsible for his own actions, and he needs to stop blaming everyone else."
Eventually, the State Ethics Commission launched its own investigation, which concluded that Habay's infractions mainly stemmed from two fund-raisers, and also said Habay knowingly used his state-paid staff to make campaign-related phone calls and stuff envelopes in 1999 and 2000.
The commission was particularly skeptical of Habay's defense.
"Habay is not a credible witness," the report said, and he "either did not answer questions posed by the investigative division or gave evasive or nonresponsive answers."
"Contrary to Habay's assertion that he did not use his [district office] for campaign/election activities, seven credible witnesses" testified that was the case.The report then named the witnesses, the Radiches among them.
Rather than rallying around Habay, Republican leadership yesterday expressed disappointment with him.
Habay's got some very serious problems there that he's going to have to come to grips with."
Smith said he'll pass the report on to the House Ethics Committee and await recommendations from that panel on whether any sanctions should be taken against Habay.
The initial ethics commission decision came in March, but Habay appealed it, meaning the case returned to the commission for an appeal review.
Habay's petition for reconsideration was formally denied this month, and the commission waited a week before releasing its full investigation.
Habay, a graduate of Fox Chapel Area High School and American University, also is vice chairman of the Allegheny County Republican Committee.
