A prominent law firm that formerly represented Harvey Weinstein handed over a $25,000 check to Gov. Andrew Cuomos campaign six days before the governor called off a probe into the handling of sexual misconduct allegations against the disgraced movie mogul, public records show.
The hefty contribution from Manhattan firm Boies Schiller & Flexner came on June 20, according to records on the state Board of Elections website.
Less than a week later, Cuomo called for a six-month halt of state Attorney General Barbara Underwoods investigation into Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance for deciding not to prosecute Weinstein for a 2015 groping incident.
The temporary suspension was ordered to avoid interfering with Weinsteins ongoing criminal case.

Is this the one who couldn’t satisfy his wife?
The msm will be all over this. Ya/s
Similar to Trump and Cohen ... but far more criminal than Trump and Cohen.
Something like "a deal's a deal."
Cuomo has been a weasel dirt bag for years. Holier than thouasshole.
Muller will get right on it.
My exact words when I read this. ‘holier than thou Asshole’
Familiar story. Cuomo drinks scum from a juice box. Media will ignore. Will demand to know what color thong Stormy Daniels wears.
Good old David Boies...Al Gore’s “hanging chad” lawyer.
Another day another Cuomoism.
Cuomo must go.
Larry Sharpe is looking better by the day.
Anyone have any idea who’s running on the Republican ticket for governor?
Nothing to see here move along, Cuomo was never that great....
Democrats are allowed to behave like this.
It’s....’for the children.’

Jeff says so what?
New York Republican gubernatorial candidate, Marc Molinaro. Don’t know anything about him though.
Never heard of him.
Could be an interesting race.
Molinaro was first elected to public office at the age of 18 in 1994, serving on Tivoli’s Board of Trustees. In 1995, he became the youngest mayor in the United States when he was elected Mayor of Tivoli. Molinaro was re-elected mayor five times, and was elected four times to the Dutchess County Legislature. In 2006, he was elected to represent the 103rd District in the New York State Assembly. In January 2011, at the recommendation of Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb, Governor Andrew Cuomo appointed Molinaro to serve on the Governor’s Mandate Relief Redesign Team. Molinaro served in the Assembly until 2011.
Molinaro announced his bid to succeed twenty-year Dutchess County Executive William Steinhaus in May 2011. The campaign was endorsed by the county’s Republican, Conservative, and Independence parties. On June 3, Beekman supervisor Dan French was nominated as the Assemblyman’s Democratic challenger. Molinaro prevailed on November 8, 2011 with 62% of the vote. Molinaro was sworn into office on January 1, 2012. In 2015, Molinaro was re-elected to a second term, defeating Democratic challenger Diane Jablonski by a significant margin.
As County Executive, Molinaro was appointed to serve on the Board of Directors of the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC). In 2015, Molinaro was elected the organization’s Second Vice President.
In March 2018, Molinaro informed Republican leaders that he would run for Governor of New York in the 2018 election. On April 2, 2018, he announced his gubernatorial candidacy. On May 23, 2018, the Republican Party unanimously nominated Molinaro as its candidate for Governor of New York at its state convention. On April 13, 2018, the Conservative Party executive committee selected Molinaro as its gubernatorial endorsee.
