You cannot stop the corruption in politics... no one would be left to run the cities, counties, states or federal governments! Andy himself would be washed away instantly if the commission actually could do its work!

This commission got way too close to the dark prince's finances & other interesting political connections, thus its demise. Not sure if the Fed DA is just a showboater or if he'll really dig deeper & get something done. Of course a former AG (I think his initials are AC) could have done this a few years ago but then he couldn't have padded his political warchest. And ToT, since "no one would be left to run ..." are you suggesting a government-less society, every person for themselves?

This is the same Governor who promised mandate relief if the tax levy cap law was passed. He cannot open his mouth without lies pouring forth. His parents must be appalled and their parents turning over in their graves.

The current self-promoting governorship is a sham, charade and a fraud. His only objective is to get the 2016 presidential democrat nomination, regardless of whether his decisions and/or actions help or hurt New York State. Government at all levels will only become better when/if the public becomes so discomfited that it will demand change, procedure, and reduction of government size and function. Cuomo in 2016?? -- when there are yellow blackbirds!!

adkkev, it is your imagination go ahead and run with it! I said what I wanted to say, corruption RULES if every corrupt politician retired the halls of every capital would be silent. Just like I wish progressives were!

Greader, Andy's Dad is former NYS Governor Mario the Pious. Far from appalled, he is spinning with delight. As TOT alluded to, Cuomo had to end the Moreland commission after he realized there would be a lot of empty seats in the State Legislature if it continues.

Adkkev, Great comment. NYS is chock full of political show-boaters and in my opinion, the Fed DA is the now the new Captain. Any Government-less society, like Somalia, is anarchy and disaster. However, a less-Government society with individuals responsible for themselves is a worthy goal.
