In an amended financial disclosure report Nassau County Legislator Mazi Melesa Pilip (R-Great Neck), the Republican candidate for the 3rd Congressional District, removed almost $90,000 in personal income from her husband’s medical practice and added thousands of dollars in stocks and other assets. 

Pilip filed the new report with the House of Representatives clerk’s office last week two days after her original one due to inaccuracies, according to her campaign.

In 2023, Pilip’s only income was $80,000 from serving as Nassau County legislator.

She reported in 2022 to have earned both her legislator salary and $13,472 from her husband’s medical practice where she previously said she worked as an operations manager in 2021 until running for the Nassau County Legislator. 

Pilip’s original filing said that she earned $50,000 each year in 2022 and 2023 from her husband’s business, which is valued between $1 million and $5 million.

Pilip is due in court on Monday for a deposition related to allegations against her husband, Dr. Adalbert Pilip, and his medical practice, A.P. New York Comprehensive Medical Care.

The suit accuses Dr. Pilip and his practice of allegedly failing to pay approximately $72,000 in rent due as of late 2020 and owing nearly $500,000 for the five remaining years on the lease through 2026, according to court documents filed in 2021. 

Pilip, who was not named in the complaint, was said to be the operations director of the practice at the time of the suit and stopped working there to run for her first elected office in 2021. 

“This is nothing more than an ongoing lease dispute between a private business and a landlord,” Brian Devine, spokesman for Pilip’s campaign, previously said in a statement to Blank Slate Media. 

Assets in Pilip’s report include between $1,001 and $15,000 for the state pension she is earning from her time in the Legislature and between $51,001 to $115,000 in stock owned by her and her husband in Artificial Intelligence Solutions, Inc., which supplies robotic and A.I.-based hardware and software.

Her Bitcoin investments were reported to be between $16,000 to $65,000 and her joint bank account with her husband was reported to be worth $15,000 to $50,000. 

House financial disclosure reports are only reported in broad ranges. 

Pilip’s reported liabilities include her husband’s student loans for medical school, incurred in 2005, between $50,001 and $100,000 and her personal credit card debt worth between $10,000 and $15,000. 

Pilip is running against former U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi to fill the seat formerly held by George Santos–who was expelled from Congress last year–-in a special election on Tuesday, Feb. 13.
