A Monroe County public official who's facing federal charges is now facing additional state charges.

Prosecutors have charged Robert Spano on 33 counts, including lying to officials, lying on financial forms and records tampering.

Spano is a Middle Smithfield Township supervisor.

Federal prosecutors charged Spano last week with lying on health insurance forms.

They say he racked up thousands of dollars in illegal expenses for his mistress.
