Executives at a national business group are railing against an Empire State official.[@@]
Officials at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Washington, say in the group’s 2005 legislative plan that the group will try to curb New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer’s “intimidation” of American companies and officials.
Chamber President Tom Donahue criticized Spitzer by name at a press conference Tuesday.
Spitzer is responsible for “the most egregious form of intimidation that we have seen in the U.S. in a long time,” Donahue said.
