Nyers Ho Hum About Cuomo Scandal

08.06.14 | Bob Price

Allegations that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo meddled with an anti-corruption commission are being met with a shrug from many voters. A new Marist College Poll shows more than 70 percent of voters view the allegations as a minor factor and say it will not sway their vote in November. Cuomo has been dogged by questions about his handling of the anti-corruption panel he created last year and abruptly dismantled this spring. Last month, The New York Times reported that a top aide pressured the commission not to investigate groups with ties to the governor.
