Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver released a statement on Monday, praising Lieutenant Governor Bob Duffy.
Silver did not say if he will call for an investigation into possible ethics violations by Duffy.
The Times Union has reported that Duffy interviewed for a job with the Rochester Business Alliance while still serving as Lieutenant Governor.
Speaker Silver says Bob Duffy has done an "outstanding job both in representing the Cuomo administration and in addressing the interest and concerns expressed by New Yorkers".
Silver says he considers Bob Duffy "a friend and colleague who brings integrity and character to our government and he hopes Duffy will continue to serve our state for many years to come".
