Sheriff Moss Criticizes Cuomo Over Disband of Moreland Commission

In the wake of questions surrounding Governor Cuomo's disbanding of the Moreland Commission -- the group he set up to investigate corruption in Albany - the GOP's Lieutenant Governor candidate hit Cuomo on the issue of ethics in Binghamton Tuesday.
 
Chemung County Sheriff Chris Moss spoke outside the Broome County Courthouse about cleaning up Albany. Moss
has been a sheriff for 25 years and said that governor Cuomo is committing crimes and not complying with his ethics platform.
According to a New York times report last week, Cuomo's aides steered the commission away from investigating groups with ties to Cuomo. Moss hopes these questions lead to an investigation of the governor.

Chemung County Sheriff said, "Cuomo has $35 million in his campaign account. That's more than any governor in the country. That money came from somewhere, let's see where the money came from, let's see what favors have been done, let's see what political favors have been done, and where contracts have gone and so forth. I think we have scratched the surface of the investigation and we are hopeful that the us attorney's office goes full blow with it."
 
Cuomo told reporters in buffalo yesterday members of his administration did nothing more than advise the commission. Broome County District Attorney Gerald Mollen, who was a member of the commission, told Fox 40 that the idea the governor controlled the commission or it's decision making is not true.
