  • The FBI is now investigating the NY Governor’s office

    12/10/2017 10:48:41 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 18 replies
    Over a year ago I wrote about the discovery of a curious aspect of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s staffing situation. Nearly half (roughly 40%) of the people working directly for Cuomo were paid by other government departments rather than falling under the payroll umbrella of the executive branch. While not technically illegal in the view of most legal analysts at the time, it was yet another indicator of a general lack of transparency in the state capitol. But as it turned out, that practice continued after it was exposed and crossed over into some other investigations which were already...

    The office of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo defended its hiring practices Friday amid scrutiny by the FBI, dismissing an investigation into a common practice in which senior staffers to the governor are paid by another state agency. The administration received a subpoena for documents months ago and is cooperating, Cuomo spokesman Rich Azzopardi said. New York governors, presidents from both parties and even the U.S. Department of Justice all have used similar staffing methods going back decades, he said. […] The investigation, which was first reported Friday by The Albany Times-Union, centers on the administration’s use of top staffers...

    The FBI is investigating the Cuomo administration's practice of hiring employees to work in the governor's office, while actually paying them through various state agencies and public authorities, the Times Union has learned. The practice of hiring pricey political appointees to work for the Executive Chamber – but paying them through other entities – has allowed Cuomo and prior governors to increase the size of their staffs while escaping criticism for inflating the Executive Chamber budget. In recent months, however, FBI agents have interviewed a number of people who work for the governor's office, but are paid by agencies or...

    White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and CNN co-host Chris Cuomo engaged in a 22-minute yelling match over Roy Moore, tax reform and foreign policy during "New Day" Wednesday morning. Conway, stealing the interviewer role from Cuomo at multiple points in the appearance, asked him if he believed Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., and Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., should resign due to multiple allegations of sexual assault against each man. "Let me tell you the hypocrisy we see at every turn. Al Franken is in the Senate right now. He has admitted this. In front of a glowing audience," Conway said. "He...

    “(A)fter he came to the United States is when he started to become informed about ISIS and radical Islamic tactics,” Cuomo said on CNN. “Again, ISIS has gotten it down to a simple formula that they can put on the internet and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to rent a car, rent a truck. But they are cowards and they are depraved.”

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo lost his cool on live T.V. after OMB Director Mick Mulvaney said that CNN was spreading false information about President Trump’s response to the hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico. Mulvaney said that mainstream media like CNN are purposely choosing to only show the “bad stuff” rather than report on all of the efforts by the Trump administration to help the people in Puerto Rico who are suffering. Here’s a flashback to the theatrical fake news CNN was pumping out… CNN traveled to Puerto Rico and interviewed San Juan Mayor Cruz wearing a “help us we are dying”...

    RUSH: You know, I have to tell you, sometimes it’s fun to watch Fredo Cuomo on CNN. Fredo has stumbled across a piece of news that has him totally confused, and that is that a law enforcement official has said that the gunman wired $100,000 to the Philippines before his shooting spree. And so Fredo is asking a financial expert, “How could a guy with such a dark heart send money to people in need or whatever in the Philippines?” I guess Fredo knows that the money was not to retire gambling debt to Philippine credit holders but rather was...

    SEARCH FOR SOLUTIONS   The Caribbean island territory had become nearly invisible in the US political picture. But some say the long road to recovery after Maria could provide the opportunity to build a better relationship with Washington, and a better Puerto Rico. When New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo arrived in a Maria-devastated Puerto Rico Friday, he brought with him a half-dozen electrical generators – coveted assistance for an island that officials estimate could be without power for months. Yet as appreciated as Mr. Cuomo’s material aid was, his visit underscored the Caribbean island’s precarious status as a United States...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York claimed on MSNBC Monday morning that he was an “immigrant,” despite being born in the United States. Host Stephanie Ruhle asked Cumo if, “New York [is] prepared for those people when the airports open to leave Puerto Rico and move to your state?” in reference to the victims of the recent recent disaster in Puerto Rico. Gov. Cuomo stated, “New York is prepared to do whatever we can do to help. We believe in immigration in New York. We are a state of immigrants. I am an immigrant. I’m wholly against this anti-immigrant fever...

    Yesterday New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order barring law enforcement officials from inquiring about the citizenship status of suspects during investigations. It would also apply to other state agencies outside of law enforcement in most cases. In other words, rather than just refusing to cooperate with ICE when they seek to deport illegal aliens, Cuomo is raising the bar and basically pretending that we don’t even have any immigration laws.While I’m sure there were plenty of Social Justice Warriors in New York City cheering the announcement, it didn’t go over so well with everyone. That includes...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed an executive order prohibiting state agencies or state officers from inquiring about or sharing a person’s immigration status. The new rule bars state police and other state law enforcement agencies from asking about a person’s right to be in the country when they’re the victim of a crime or a witness. It also means state agencies won’t be able to share a person’s immigration status with federal authorities, except in certain situations, such as a law enforcement investigation. …

  • Is there West Nile at the (NY) State Fair?

    Is there West Nile virus at the New York state fair? That's a natural suspicion that arises out of some unusual conduct Wednesday by the Onondaga County Health Department. Another suspicion that arises is that the department may have changed its practices -- and possibly endangered public health -- in order to avoid hurting attendance at the fair or raising embarrassing questions while the governor was in town. Here's the background. Each summer, the Onondaga County Health Department tests mosquitoes for the presence of the West Nile virus and eastern equine encephalitis. It does this by placing traps in wet...

    I do hope that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo runs for president in 2020, and further that he is the Democratic nominee. He appears determined to make upstate New York into the East Germany of America by his intransigent refusal to allow fracking to produce natural gas, this keeping shale gas-rich upstate New York from enjoying the same kind of prosperity as western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. Cuomo’s anti-gas bias extends to using state power to block natural gas pipelines intended to serve New England that have received federal approval. So lots of New Englanders will have continue using more...

    Gov. Cuomo Urges U.S. Army to Rename Confederate Streets in Brooklyn in Wake of Charlottesville ViolenceGov. Cuomo on Wednesday called on the U.S. Army to reconsider its recent decision not to rename two streets in Brooklyn honoring Civil War Confederate generals. “Renaming these streets will send a clear message that in New York, we stand against intolerance and racism, whether it be insidious and hidden or obvious and intentional,” Cuomo wrote in a letter sent to acting Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy. The Army on Aug. 7 denied requests from New York congressional members to change the names of Stonewall Jackson...

    ALBANY — Actress Cynthia Nixon, who played Miranda on “Sex and the City,” may want a new role as Ms. Big. Nixon is said to be one of several Democrats in New York mulling a potential Democratic primary challenge to Gov. Cuomo in 2018. “She’d be a fantastic candidate,” said Billy Easton, executive director of the teachers union-supported Alliance for Quality Education. Easton has worked with Nixon on state education issues. Nixon, whose potential run was first reported by the Wall Street Journal on Friday, has frequently been an activist on state and city issues, particularly pertaining to public education.

NEW YORK — The scene is unfolding in the shabby headquarters of the Hotel Trades Council just off Times Square in the late spring of 2017, but it’s not hard to imagine the speech somewhere in the Rust Belt in 2020, with a Democratic nominee trying to reclaim the Upper Midwest for his party. “The truth is the middle class is under attack. The working families are under attack,” Andrew Cuomo bellows, his tough-guy accent coming in a little thick. “Middle-class...
