ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo has established a powerful investigative body to examine the state Board of Elections and potential wrongdoing by legislators in campaign fundraising.
Cuomo outlined the panel Tuesday morning at the state capitol.
“You have a mechanism in place that is going to assure that this government is a government of integrity and a government that you can trust,” Cuomo said. “You couldn’t design a better, more professional mechanism with more power and more capacity than this mechanism to police this government.”
