Where Gov. Cuomo went wrong - and where many associated with his disbanded ethics commission went wrong - was in mixing law enforcement with hardball Albany gamesmanship.

By stirring the two, Cuomo transformed a drive to force reform on the Legislature into a shambles that prompted an investigation by Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

Amazingly, it's the governor's office - not the Legislature - that has been forced to hire a criminal defense lawyer.

This giveaway to One57 has all the makings of a perfect case for Cuomo’s Moreland Act commission: large campaign contributions changing hands, lawmakers operating behind closed doors, special interests gaining undeserved benefits and taxpayers getting the shaft.”


Now who got the shaft now andy




A later editorial carried the headline, “Follow Cuomo’s money, too,” after Albany Bureau Chief Ken Lovett disclosed that the developer had given $300,000 to the governor’s campaign over the past two years, including $100,000 shortly before Cuomo signed the tax breaks into law.


Thats smells like illigal to me


Along the way, the governor’s office pressured the commission into dropping plans to subpoena the Real Estate Board of New York in favor of simply requesting information from the group.


Thats abstration of justice or some thing along those line andy. may be preet could clear this for us?


Numerous instances of similar interference add to the brief that Cuomo meddled with a commission that had become more than an arm of the governor the moment he granted it the attorney general’s authority. The distinction appears to have escaped Cuomo.


But not preet!


Now, newly aware that anything he says can and will be used against him, Cuomo has said he will have no further comment. That’s how serious the matter is.


And that andy is were baba comes in letlery

This looks like the old New York pay to play scheme is in full swing here ! Plus now that DA Rice is " talking " to the Feds , the looks of Andy coming out as unscathed are fleeting away on the breeze !the story today says that Fitzy is " shaking " in his boots and Andy is "popping " Xanax like m and m,s . No matter how long this takes , this will never go away till after the election !

The way I see it is this, NONE of his cronies will want to talk. They'll all look to protect him and themselves. However, once the first rat begins to spill the beans, the rest of the rats will join in the frenzy to protect themselves. Nobody wants someone else to tell the story where they're involved too. Self preservation is the name of the game here. Then we can take it to the next step, nobody wants to be the last person to squeal either. The last person to come forward is just as rotten as the one being hung out to dry. Therefore, now that Katie Rice has come forward we're going to see the rest of the stoolies come home to roost with our man Preet.

FUAC forever more!
