Cy Vance: Resign the District Attorney Post and Take Responsibility for your Actions

This petition had 254 supporters

Earlier this week, a collaborative investigation by ProPublica, WNYC and The New Yorker revealed details that D.A. Cy Vance had accepted over $30,000 donation and other monies from a Trump family lawyer after dropping a serious case of fraud against Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. In the case, Cy Vance eventually overruled his lead prosecutors and dropped all charges against the Trump heirs at a pivotal moment before a grand jury was convened.

In another case, it has also been revealed that D.A. Vance previously received $10,000 from the lawyer of another prominent case after dropping serious charges. In addition to sparking public outrage over failing to hold accountable any of the Wall Street banks responsible for the 2008 financial crash, the behavior of the Manhattan D.A. has fueled suspicions of impropriety and a loss confidence in his ability to administer justice. 

This petition calls on D.A. Vance to resign and immediately return all donations related to cases he has previously vacated. Given the scourge of corruption and prosecutor misconduct plaguing New York City's criminal justice system, it is imperative that our district attorneys espouse the highest levels of integrity and public confidence. The citizens of New York deserve nothing less.
