Cuomo Can Keep Book Advance. That is the determination of the Joint Commission on Public Ethics. The vote fell one short of clawing back the 5 Million Dollars the ex Governor received. The deciding vote was cast by recent Hochul appointee Randall Hinrichs. The whole thing stinks. Cuomo clearly violated ethics protocol by using state employees to compile and edit the memoir. That Kathy Hochul’s man would side with Cuomo is evidence of her double dealing. She claims to be cleaning house and ushering in a New Era. On the contrary, she is conspiring for more of the same old corruption. She has betrayed the public trust in less than one month in office. Cuomo Can Keep Book Advance. Governor Hochul is showing her TRUE COLORS !!
