The Tick-Tock Begins for Andrew Cuomo | PJ Tatler

The Tick-Tock Begins for Andrew Cuomo‘ only rehashes a NY Daily News editorial re Cuomo and quashing of the Moreland Commission. No new information. Mr. Tatler only makes snide remarks about Cuomo’s possible fears.

Real questions alluded to in the News’ editorial:
1) How much did Cuomo know about the targets of the Commission’s investigations;
2) When did he know it; and
3) Did he bargain away, ie, shutter the Commission –at the insistence of Silver and Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos– in his own political self-interest; and
4) What legislation (including budget bills, ie, “the big ugly”), if any, were tainted by Silver’s alleged corruption?

Answers to these questions and more may be revealed in coming installments of As Albany Turns. Stay tuned.
