Senator Tom Libous indicted on charges of lying to FBI

CHENANGO COUNTY – A federal indictment is putting heat on longstanding New York State Republican Senator Tom Libous who’s facing charges of lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.



Libous was charged on Tuesday with one count of making false statements to the FBI. The allegation stems from an investigation that took place in 2010, when the FBI pursued allegations made by a federal grand jury in White Plains that Libous used his political influence to get his son, Matthew Libous, a job at a law firm in Westchester County.

According to the indictment, the FBI interviewed Libous on the charges in June, 2010. The document states Libous “knowingly and willfully did falsify, conceal, and cover up material facts” to the FBI relative to his son’s employment at the law firm.
