Democrats criticized Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino on Friday over work he does for a national media company, saying it may violate ethics rules in Westchester County, where Astorino is county executive.

   Astorino makes about $30,000 a year advising Townsquare Media on radio station programming. He is a former radio producer who was elected county executive in 2009.

   Mike Morey, spokesman for an anti-Astorino group organized by Westchester Democrats, said the county charter requires the executive to be a full-time staffer.
