Rob Astorino on Government Reform
We desperately need term limits in Albany for all parties
Gov. Andrew Cuomo's use of his $35 million campaign war chest to represent his office in the ongoing Moreland Commission saga [is legal, but the state Senate now has pending legislation to outlaw the practice]. And the lawyer isn't just representing
Cuomo in the Moreland mess, but the entire governor's office while federal investigators look into whether top aides played a role in blocking or directing subpoenas.
As the Moreland controversy continued to swirl, Republican candidate for governor Rob Astorino released a video online reiterating his call for term limits. "It's why we desperately need term limits in Albany for all parties," said Astorino.
Republicans are targeting key districts upstate in the hopes of keeping power in the chamber, the last lever of power the GOP controls in the state.
