"State Senate employee's erotic swinger party 'disconcerting' and 'sends a bad message,' Albany lawmakers say"

ALBANY — Senators on both sides of the aisle raised concerns on Friday about a state Senate employee who runs erotic swingers parties with her husband.

“I think we would rather have this not happen, that's clear — especially a week before the election,” said state Sen. Tony Avella (D-Queens), who called the situation “disconcerting.”

“I think that this definitely sends a bad message,” added Sen. Martin Golden (R-Brooklyn).

The Daily News reported Friday that Janis Gonzalez, a $45,000-a-year office manager for the Senate Democrats, runs an erotic dance event business that caters to swingers with husband Carlos Gonzalez, who is the son of convicted ex-Sen. Efrain Gonzalez.

The pair is planning a “Gods and Goddesses” Halloween party in Albany on Nov. 3, just steps from the Capitol building.

While the party could prove an embarrassment, lawmakers from both parties said it’s difficult to fire or discipline Gonzalez because the business has not affected her government job.

Hotel Albany General Manager Art Thompson said he was surprised to read The News’ account of the party planned for his hotel. He said the group booked only a block of rooms and no party space. “There is no function planned,” Thompson said.

Carlos Gonzalez refuted, saying, “There is an event.”
