A senior leader within the Clarkstown Republican Party said that Carey removed the present Deputy Minority Leader, Legislator Sparaco, from the Deputy Minority Leadership position because of his vile outburst against Ed Day during the August 6th meeting of the full Legislature. The source went on to say: “While any legislator has the right to speak his or her mind, those in leadership positions should be held to a higher standard. Frank Sparaco has completely failed to live up to those standards on numerous occasions.”
