Cuomo: Secrecy = Transparency

You just can't make this stuff up:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo today defended the closed-door budget negotiations, saying “just because something is done behind closed doors doesn’t mean the process isn’t transparent.”

He said he and legislative leaders have made their budget positions know publicly, and they need to meet privately to hash out the details.

 “Just because something is done behind closed doors doesn’t mean the process isn’t transparent,” Cuomo told reporters today. “You can’t do everything in the public view always and have frank, candid meaningful conversations.”

In short, you can't threaten, bribe and otherwise get your way on the budget when others are watching.

Better to be behind closed doors and do all that in secret.

A secrecy which is of course totally transparent.

  1. This whole corrupt destruction of public education reminds me of The Crucible so much...

    Cuomo - “just because something is done behind closed doors doesn’t mean the process isn’t transparent.”

    (Using bad Clinton imitation)We were alone, but I never really thought were alone. I never had sex with that woman. (Using bad Nixon voice) I am not a crook, says the charter school lobbyist.
