    Cuomo scandal

    With Albany rocked by a seemingly endless barrage of scandals and arrests, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo set up a high-powered commission last summer to root out corruption in state politics. It was barely two months old when its investigators, hunting for violations of campaign-finance laws, issued a subpoena to a media-buying firm that had placed millions of dollars’ worth of advertisements for the New York State Democratic Party.
    The investigators did not realize that the firm, Buying Time, also counted Mr. Cuomo among its clients, having bought the airtime for his campaign when he ran for governor in 2010.
    Word that the subpoena had been served quickly reached Mr. Cuomo’s most senior aide, Lawrence S. Schwartz. He called one of the commission’s three co-chairs, William J. Fitzpatrick, the district attorney in Syracuse.
    “This is wrong,” Mr. Schwartz said, according to Mr. Fitzpatrick, whose account was corroborated by three other people told about the call at the time. He said the firm worked for the governor, and issued a simple directive:
    “Pull it back.”

    Now, this apparently isn't the only time this happened. Andrew Cuomo established an "independent" anti-corruption scandal but his administration would run interference whenever they got close to anyone connected to Cuomo.

    "Ipso facto ....... !" .... Cuomo' s presidential aspirations are cooked-oh!


    Well, then again, I though Bridgegate cooked Christie's, but it doesn't seem so

    I know, such a joke. Weed out corruption but not for me. I believe he said once since he started this commission it wouldn't be ethical to investigate himself LOL

    How these politicians think they can get away with things like this is beyond me

    Perry, Cuomo....

    They will still be rich. Probably richer than any of us in these forums.

    They will still be powerful. Probably more powerful than anyone in these forums will ever be.

    So, they are no longer Dukes of their own Great States......


    I have to go cry now, those poor, poor guys.....

    I did too.

    Even though I did not share many of his views on the issues, he seemed to be...dare I say it....."humble" and..."honest"(????? I know, that is such a stretch for a politician, but...he seemed that way.)
