Report: Members of anti-corruption panel avoided law

A new report claims that several of Governor Cuomo’s appointments to his commission for investigating political misdoings in Albany didn’t follow the law themselves when it came to campaign finance disclosure.

The weekend inquiry by the New York Daily News says five of Cuomo’s selections to the 25-member Moreland Commission failed to properly file campaign disclosure forms as required by law.

One commission member, Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson, didn’t file three required disclosure statements when he ran for re-election in 2007.

Cuomo announced the commission’s formation just last week as the answer to his highly-anticipated response for ending corruption within New York state politics.
