Another chapter in New Yorkâ€™s saga of corruption unfolded yesterday after it was revealed that the probe into sexual predator Harvey Weinsteinâ€™s case was halted by Gov. Cuomo. Less than a week after the attorneys for Weinstein donated $25,000 to Gov. Cuomoâ€™s re-election campaign, the news broke that the investigation would end.
â€œWhen Gov. Cuomo announced this summer he was pardoning convicted pedophiles so they can vote, I thought that was rock bottom for him, until today. The timing is just too convenient and I am disappointed that the governor canâ€™t keep politics and greed out of such a cut-and-dried investigation. For someone who claims to be a champion of women's rights, this is the sort of hypocrisy that's become synonymous with the governor's eight years in office. We deserve so much better.â€?This comes on the heels from earlier this spring of Tagueâ€™s calls for the Governor to answer questions regarding suspicious campaign donations from Crystal Run.
