Cuomo’s Corruption: Buffalo Billions Trial Round 2
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Administration is riddled with corruption and his political prospects are starting to diminish. As we mentioned last summer, the trial will be a major headache for Cuomo as he seeks re-election to a third term this fall.
“The second Buffalo Billion’s trial is bad news for Cuomo’s political ambitions as his reputation has been irreparably damaged. As a result of scandal and corruption, both Cynthia Nixon and Stephanie Minor have decided to mount a challenge to the damaged Democrat who once seemed untouchable,” said Alexandra Smith, Executive Director of America Rising PAC.
Through our Andrew Cuomo Initiative, America Rising PAC wants to take the opportunity at the start of the second Buffalo Billions trial to remind observers about the embattled Governor’s copious connections to Alain Kaloyeros—who is currently standing trial for rigging an open bidding process for a state contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars in favor of companies that are run by top Cuomo donors:
- Cuomo selected Alain Kaloyeros to oversee the Buffalo Billion Project
- Kaloyeros worked under five Governors, including Cuomo’s father Mario Cuomo
- Cuomo praised Kalayeros, even after his indictment saying he has “done a lot of good for New York” and that “he’s New York’s secret weapon.”
The walls seem to be closing in on Cuomo’s reign over the Empire State.
