More Calls For a Cuomo Investigation

While the vast majority of lawmakers have remained silent on the Moreland meddling story, including the Governor himself, there are some finally speaking up and demanding that it’s time for a Cuomo investigation.

Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin posted his calls for a Cuomo investigation last week:

I will be calling for the legislature to do it’s job and begin an investigation at once into Cuomo’s involvement in corrupting his own anti-corruption commission. Truthfully, I don’t think they’ll act on my demand but I am still going to call for it. The legislature has the authority and clearly there is a need for this investigation in to Cuomo.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino has predicted that some of Cuomo’s administration officials could be indicted.

Assemblyman Steve Katz (R) has now joined in demanding a Cuomo investigation.

Via the Times Union:

Certainly Cuomo’s gubernatorial opponents and GOP candidates for other statewide offices have made hay with the report, but lawmakers have been oddly quiet.

This probably shouldn’t be a surprise since A) They figure the public may not be that upset and B) The closure of the commission could be seen as a big favor to the Legislature, whose members were the major targets.

Now, though, Hudson Valley Republican Assemblyman Steve Katz is joining the critics with a call for an investigation.

Here’s what Katz had to say earlier Friday:

After reading the New York Times report earlier this week it is apparent that Gov. Cuomo’s motto for the Moreland Commission was “Subpoenas for thee; not me.” The governor’s initiative to clean up Albany corruption is mired in scandal itself? a feat not easily attained. The laws and scope of this investigation are not just for the little people. We deserve an open and transparent investigation into the Moreland Commission and any involvement the governor’s office had in their activities.

Lest you think this is solely a Republican call for a Cuomo investigation, Zephyr Teachout – a Democrat candidate for governor – has called for Cuomo’s resignation.  She called the latest revelations “deeply disturbing” and added that is Cuomo “directed or even knew that his top aide was obstructing and interfering with the Moreland Commission, he should immediately resign.”

Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart also took a shot at Cuomo, saying his excuse for tampering with the Moreland Commission was “f*cking ridiculous.

Last week, The New York Times unearthed several sources who have corroborated stories of Governor Cuomo’s office interfering with the Moreland Commission, an ethics panel set up by the Governor himself.  Top aides were even cited as demanding members of the ethics panel “pull back” subpoenas issued to groups close to the Governor.
