New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has some fishy hiring practices at his office and the FBI has taken notice. Now his office is being investigated. Funny, we haven’t seen this story getting much attention from the liberal media.
FOX News reported:
FBI reportedly investigating New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo office’s hiring practices
The FBI is reportedly investigating New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office hiring practices.
According to the Albany Times-Union, senior staffers who were hired to work for the governor were allegedly listed and being paid by other state agencies, which would make the Democrat’s staff and budget look smaller than it really was.
The administration received a subpoena for documents months ago and is cooperating, Cuomo spokesman Rich Azzopardi said, adding that other New York governors, presidents from both political parties and even the U.S. Department of Justice have all used similar staffing methods going back decades.
“In this environment, anyone can ask about anything,” Azzopardi said. “Given that the federal Department of Justice and the White House have a long history of utilizing this practice, perhaps the FBI can investigate them when this charade is over.”
Azzopardi claimed the process was lawful and noted that all agencies whose payrolls were being used to pay staffers were within the executive branch.
This doesn’t look good for the Governor, does it?
