Diane Neal

It looks like another actress is stepping onto the political stage in New York State. 

According to the Times Union, Diane Neal, best known for her role as Assistant DA Casey Novak on NBC's "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" will formally launch her campaign against incumbent Congressman John Faso Wednesday in the town of Hurley. 

Neal is running as an independent, and says she's shunning party endorsements. 

However, she is a registered Democrat who has lived in Ulster County for the last several years.
