Michael Ryan is reporting in The Daily Mail Columbia County District Attorney Paul Czajka (CHIA-kah) has become the second prosecutor to withdraw from the investigation into potential wrongdoing in Windham that may, or may not involve Town Supervisor and former police chief Stacy Post. Reached by phone this week, Czajka offered the paper little detail about the investigation or his decision to withdraw. He said, “I can confirm that I have asked the county court to relieve me from the investigation and prosecution of at least one case in Greene County, the specifics of which I cannot discuss.” A former Bronx assistant district attorney, John Sandleitner (SAND-lite-ner), has been appointed to take over the probe by the Greene Co. Supreme Court. Sandleitner maintains a private practice in the town of Hunter. Acting Greene County District Attorney Charles Bucca (BOO-khah) recused himself in April to avoid any appearance of impropriety. State police investigators raided Post’s home and seized a computer from her town hall office in March. No charges have been filed. Town officials continue to decline comment on the matter.
