Cuomo Urges Lawmakers To Keep Their Eyes On Their Work Not Political Scandals

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said all the political scandals shouldn't derail this legislative session. He still wants to pass a women's rights bill that expands abortion, plan Las Vegas style casinos in upstate, and create a board to restructure local government's finances. But he has a problem. The legislature has dealt with a remarkable number of scandals in recent weeks, including the arrest of five lawmakers so far this year. Cuomo said he doesn't want the scandal mania to eclipse this session, which ends in a little over a month, on June 20th.
