NEW YORK- NY-  After learning of the death of Robert Morgenthau, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney released the following statement:

I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my dear friend Robert Morgenthau, our City’s legendary district attorney. As New York City’s longest serving elected prosecutor, Bob fought to make our city and our world a more just and safe place. His decades long dedication to justice transformed our great city and inspired the next generation of politicians, activists, and reformers. I was privileged to work closely with him on combatting sex trafficking, and know that his forward thinking approach to prosecuting sex crimes saved the lives of many. He was also a tireless crusader against corporate malfeasance who successfully protected consumers, workers and investors. May his memory live on and inspire future generations to keep fighting for a more just and equal society. My thoughts and condolences are with Lucinda and their family during this sad time."
