Last Monday, the New York Times published a story on their three month investigation into the Moreland Commission. The Commission, established in June, 2013, was set up to investigate corruption in Albany . While allegations of corruptive behavior are nothing new to Albany, this report focuses directly on whether or not the Cuomo Administration’s alleged interfered with the Commissions work. It should be noted that the article does not specifically allege any illegal behavior.
The Governor has stated that the both he and his office were incapable of interfering with a commission that he created, and that the commission was legally under his control during its entire tenure. The entire article, “Cuomo’s Office Hobbled Ethics Inquiries by Moreland Commission,” can be read here: http://nyti.ms/1lNnXTz
