WOODBURY - Conservative talk show host Bill O'Reilly has been accused of spinning his influence to get a Nassau detective investigated. The so-called scandal began last year with a story written by Gawker reporter John Cook. Cook's sources said that O'Reilly asked then-Nassau Police Commissioner Lawrence Mulvey to investigate a Nassau police detective's personal life, because O'Reilly believed the officer was dating his estranged wife. Cook has reported that Mulvey agreed to the investigation because the Fox pundit was considering a large donation to the police department's charity.Under New York's Freedom of Information laws, Cook repeatedly requested access to documents from the alleged probe, but the Nassau PD denied the requests. A judge recently ordered the department to release some of the documents, but the department is appealing the decision.
