Cuomo Fills His Audiences With Paid State Workers

Well, here's one way to assure a good turnout:

Gov. Cuomo wasn’t taking any chances that there might be empty seats at a speech he delivered last week on climate change — so state workers were summoned on the taxpayer dime to fill the audience, The Post has learned.

The workers said they left their jobs in the middle of the day Thursday and were paid their full salaries to hear Cuomo at Columbia University announce the state was joining a global effort to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.

“I’d rather be at the park,” said one of the workers, who is employed by the state’s Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and who has no connection to climate issues.

He explained that he went because his boss “asked me to make some time available in my schedule.”

The worker confessed that he didn’t know what the event was about before he agreed to go.
He said attendance is not required, but is viewed favorably, and that the practice is common throughout state government to support Cuomo.

“They often ask,” he said, referring to supervisors. “We get e-mails, and they’ll ask us if we want to go.”

The worker said he would not have volunteered if he were not getting paid his regular salary. “It better be on the clock,” he said.

Gee, this story kinda reminds me of when the Cuomo campaign used employees from a real estate company linked to Cuomo to protest Zephyr Teachout.

That's Governor Cuomo for you.

He's not very popular, so he's gotta pay to get people to show up for him.

  3. I talked with a union carpenter in a coffee shop downtown a few weeks back who told me he and all of his fellows were told to come to an oddly scheduled union meeting one night and that it was mandatory. Turns out it was to provide Cuomo with a similar claque of so called working men supporters. It never ends. His own take was it was b,s. and Cuomo was an a hole. But he didn't want to risk missing the meeting,
