commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Cuomo will not personally be involved in investigating the man with his next job…….

I think that is a good idea……being involved would be a VERY BAD thing…..

People could get the idea that he was going after Paterson….

The Dog thinks that no matter who sits in judgement…Paterson will not charged with any criminal wrong doing…..

To do so would invite a uproar…(Cuomo has already dropped more than ten points since this whole thing pointed  to him doing an investigation..first he’s gonna run over him politcally….now he could send him to jail? )

A Black, blind Governor …..being charged in New York???… ( especially with Cuomo’s past black problems? )*

Whew…I wouldn’t want be behind that……

Andrew Cuomo recused himself from two investigations his office was conducting of Governor David Paterson’s office, saying he wanted to avoid the “appearance” of impropriety, since it’s very likely Cuomo will run for governor this fall.

The first investigation is looking into accusations that Paterson and the state police interfered with a woman’s attempt to file domestic violence charges against a top gubernatorial aide. The other case involves charges that Paterson lied to investigators about his plans to pay back a developer for free World Series tickets.

“I have removed myself from the case,” Cuomo announced in a 40-plus minute conference call today, telling reporters that the cases will now be handled by former Chief Judge Judith Kaye, who will work pro bono. “There is no finer person in the State of New York to take on this responsibility.” he said.

Cuomo said he has interviewed dozens of witness, but not the governor, and that the allegations are credible.

“If there was no merit to either of these referrals, I could have saved everyone a lot of time and dismissed them. I don’t believe they are without merit,” Cuomo said. “We do believe they need to be investigated.”

In recent days, Cuomo’s public approval rating had dropped by as much as 13 percentage points, with the public saying they wanted an independent prosecutor, not Cuomo, investigating the matter.

Cuomo said polling wasn’t the reason for his move, and that it had been in the works before the numbers were released.

  1. First Paterson is NOT blind…he is visually impaired

    Second this story about the woman that a victim of assault and being given the cold shoulder with authorities really upsets me

    So often it seems like when you are attacked you are deemed an outcast and not given any aid

  3. James B, notice that Cuomo’s popularity among African Americans, Latinos and Asians are TANKING because of the Paterson investigation and the theory his office was going after the governor.

    I expect those general election numbers to slow down as well to the mid-50s.
