NEW YORK (AP) — A defiant Jeanine Pirro said yesterday she is determined to stay in the state attorney general’s race and will seek a federal investigation into the leak of sealed court documents that state she planned to secretly record her husband, whom she suspected of having an affair.

“There needs to be a federal investigation of the felony of leaking sealed court documents,” Mrs. Pirro, a Republican, told the New York Hispanic Clergy Association in New York City. “That’s the only crime that occurred here. And it’s an outrage to the people of this state.

“The only thing I’m concerned about now, is keeping my family together, as I’ve said for many years, and making sure we have a special prosecutor appointed,” she said, receiving a standing ovation.

Mrs. Pirro said she is more determined than ever to stay in the race against Democrat Andrew Cuomo.

At a press conference Wednesday, Mrs. Pirro acknowledged that she was under a federal investigation for considering taping her husband, lobbyist Albert Pirro.
