Cuomo is a crook just like his dad. He staged his little sham investigation for its entertainment value and he shut it down when he no longer enjoyed the show.

Thank you, Andrew, That statement demonstrated what a power-mad narcisstic idiot you are.

"Im in charge" Dumbo/Cuomo better hope ace WNBC reporter Jonothan Diensnt doesnt hear about this.

Dienst likes nothing better to than to takedown smug. self-serving pols like this guy.

Rob Astorino is a good conservative, and actually does have a chance to take down Cuomo in November.

NY conservatives need to get energized and get to work!!!
