Politicians Preparing For Queries From Governor Cuomo’s Commission To Investigate Public Corruption

The “Commission to Investigate Public Corruption” has been established with one goal: getting rid of the bad apples in government.

Governor Andrew Cuomo said, “We must root out corruption in politics and government,”  and set up the new investigative team under the Moreland Act and Executive Law Section 63(8).

Members of the new commission hail mainly from the legal and law enforcement fields.  State Attorney General Eric Scheiderman is appointing the group’s members as Deputy Attorneys General, giving them the authority to subpoena records and examine witnesses.

In a written statement provided by the Governor’s office Schneiderman said, “New Yorkers want real reform, and expect and deserve the officials they put in office to be working to serve the public interest, not their own.  This commission will be able to conduct a top to bottom investigation of New York State’s government, and move us forward to repair our broken political process, strengthen our representative democracy and give New Yorkers the quality of leadership they deserve.”

The Commission is being co-chaired by Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice, Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick, and attorney Milton Williams, Jr., who has previously served as an Assistant United States Attorney.

Are there more than a few bad apples in office in New York?
