Cuomo establishes anti-corruption panel

Governor Cuomo has appointed his “Moreland Commission” aimed at investigating and prosecuting public corruption.

The commission is made up of law enforcement and government officials from across the state and is charged with putting a specific system in place that will punish corrupt lawmakers.

Cuomo believes the credibility of the commission can go a long way with restoring the public trust.

“The recent rash of wrongdoing by legislators in Albany has shaken the public’s trust in government,” Cuomo said.

He notes the commission comes at a time when new public disclosure laws for legislators take effect, creating more transparency than ever.

State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is heading the commission with three co-chairs.
