Statement from Chairman Cox on the Indictments of Top Cuomo Aide, Associates & Donors
November 21, 2016
"Today is indeed a sad day for the people of New York who are suffering under a corrupt administration that operates with an insatiable appetite for power and control. Joe Percoco--who Governor Cuomo has described as a 'brother'--was long known as the Governor's enforcer, and under his direction and blessing, brazenly wielded power to mete out punishments to enemies and reward friends and donors. Cuomo's call for ethics reform is nothing more than lipstick on a pig timed to feign virtuousness. New Yorkers will see through this charade for what it really is and hold the Governor accountable for his corrupt administration."
