A Monroe County legislator says he’s being extorted because of a personal photo he accidentally sent to the wrong person.
The revelation came from Ernest Flagler-Mitchell (D-29), who leads the Black and Asian Caucus on the county legislature.
In a statement Flagler-Mitchell released on Saturday, he says that last November, he sent a photo intended for his wife to someone he was working with. The lawmaker says he apologized to the person who inadvertently got it. He says that individual accepted his apology and assured Flagler-Mitchell they were not offended.
