Cuomo Report Says State Police Tainted by Politics
Wednesday, September 09, 2009
New York, NY —
This week, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo released a report that says as far back as the Pataki Administration, top officials at the state police have been tainted by politics. Governor Paterson requested the investigation after disclosures that during the Spitzer Administration the state police tracked the daily movements of Republican political rival, Senate Majority leader Joseph Bruno. Much of the Cuomo report focuses on the activities of Daniel Wiese who commanded Pataki's protection Unit, and went on to be the Inspector General of the New York Power Authority. With us now to talk about the fallout of the report is WNYC's Bob Hennelly.
