Statement from Chairman Cox on the Guilty Verdict of Top Cuomo Aide Joe Percoco

March 13, 2018 — “Today the jury found Governor Andrew Cuomo’s closest aide, confidante and ‘enforcer’ guilty of multiple corruption charges; however, the information that came out throughout the trial revealed a widespread, corrosive culture of corruption driven by the Governor himself. We learned through evidence and testimony, the Governor, his then counsel and other senior aides apparently committed crimes in allowing Mr. Percoco to illegally utilize state resources for his bribery schemes and the Governor’s political purposes.

“Now that the verdict is in, we renew our call on the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the state’s ethics commission to investigate Mr. Percoco’s violations of state laws with the apparent involvement of Governor Cuomo, his counsel and other senior aides. This is a sad day for our state, but today’s verdict must be just one chapter in an ongoing effort to clean up Cuomo’s rampant pay-to-play and corrupt operations. The billions wasted in these schemes is costing New Yorkers dearly.”
