Cuomo: Not My Job To Hold My Employees Accountable For Corruption

That was essentially the message yesterday when Cuomo talked to the press:

ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday he has no regrets about his decision not to ask a former top aide more about his outside consulting arrangements in 2014, which have now come under scrutiny in a federal investigation.

Speaking to reporters in the Adirondacks, Cuomo said the "onus" was on Joseph Percoco, his former aide and campaign manager, to follow the state's ethics laws.

Percoco, long one of Cuomo's most loyal confidants before his departure for the private sector early this year, reported received between $70,000 and $125,000 in consulting payments from a pair of firms with business before the state in 2014, when he was off the state payroll running Cuomo's re-election campaign.

"If you're a state employee, you know the ethics rules," Cuomo said. "You know the legal regulations. The onus is on you to follow them, not for you to be questioned and then follow them."

Last week, Cuomo acknowledged Percoco had told him he may perform outside consulting work while off the state payroll. But the governor said he never asked who Percoco was accepting fees from.

In short, employees who work for Governor Cuomo get to hold themselves accountable because the "onus" is on them to follow the rules.

If only Cuomo had the same system for teachers and schools.

Alas, due to his APPR teacher evaluation system, we are micromanaged and scrutinized in everything we do.

One set of rules for Cuomo employees (and Cuomo himself) - another set of rules for teachers and schools.


  1. RBE Shari Lederman won her case against the state and the supreme court justice ruled that her evaluation findings were arbitrary and capricious. While not claiming the entire system is flawed he did state that the basis for her rating was wrong thus that the entire APPR system should now be challenged. Cuomo is mentioned as having signed the law last year. Newsday has the story!!
