    Unless its a wry comment on NYC vs. the rest of New York, shud it be “the first priority of the state’s next Governor.”?

      Oof. Good catch.

        went ahead and deleted grammar comment since it got fixed so fast 🙂

    Interesting. I’m surprised that NYT bothered with the story about a Dem. There must some way they can blame it on House Republicans. They must be short handed . . .

    The incident does remind us old timers of the Saturday Night Massacre when Nixon fired Cox, and Richardson and Klinedienst resigned in protest and to honor promises to the Judiciary Comittee, and Bork wanted to but was persuaded not to by Richardson and Klinedienst because one of them needed to stay to run the Dept. Those were the good old days.

    In our organized society how does one constrain “entrenched interests, networks of patronage, rent seeking, and rampant greed (assuming such)? What we have before us is an operative and a formal political-legal system that sustains itself sans party affiliation.

    If these allegations stick, Cuomo is facing a far bigger scandal than New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s “Bridgegate.”

    No, America would also have to have a responsible news media for this to be true. As it is, attack ads are the only way most Americans could become aware of this.

    Advice to Cuomo: &nbspAppoint a staunch supporter to investigate you. &nbspIn a few weeks declare no corruption, not even, uh, an iota. &nbspBlame rogue agents in Bensonhurst.

    This is what he gets for quashing the Teacher’s unions attempt to ban charter schools.

    There are some risks for Hillary. Cuomo was never one of them.
