Amid a full-blooming investigation of possible deception and conflicts of interest involving Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s former executive deputy secretary Joe Percoco, a May 10 “Public Affairs Roundtable Breakfast” featuring Cuomo’s current Secretary Bill Mulrow has been postponed.
The roundtable was to have been hosted by the lobbying arm of the Whiteman Osterman & Hanna law firm.
A subsidiary, WOH Government Solutions, was run by lobbyist Todd Howe, who represented several of the companies currently in focus in U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s probe into upstate economic development projects.
It's perfect that a roundtable featuring the governor's secretary was being sponsored by the lobbying arm of a law firm under investigation for corruption involving the governor's former aides and his Buffalo Billion Project.
I think they should have let it go on anyway - kinda like an emblem for the administration as a whole.
