Syracuse.com also reported that Cuomo refused to take questions from the press after the speech he gave to business people at the CenterState CEO annual luncheon:
After the speech, Cuomo didn't take questions from the press. His staff said his schedule in Syracuse was tight and that the speech started late.
The luncheon cost $65 to $80 per person, or $625 to $775 per table of 10 seats, according to CenterState's website.
I haven't seen any video of this, which is a shame, because the only thing funnier than the thought of Sheriff Andy Cuomo running from reporters to avoid questions about his Moreland Commission shutdown and the furor he caused when he unceremoniously ended it is video of Sheriff Andy running from reporters to avoid questions about his Moreland Commission shutdown and the furor he caused when he unceremoniously ended it.
That Cuomo is now running away from reporters rather than bullshitting his way through these impromptu press gaggles that occur when he gives speeches or makes official appearances around the state is an indication of just how much of a problem this Moreland mess is for Sheriff Andy.
Clearly he's worried about something or he wouldn't be running from the press.
