Gov. candidate Molinaro reports Cuomo to NYPD

NEW YORK – Republican gubernatorial candidate Marcus Molinaro, the current Dutchess County executive, was in Manhattan on Wednesday to file a formal report of what he believes was “clear criminal activity” committed by Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo. NYPD told him to take it up with the attorney general, something he said he has already done.

Molinaro’s complaint comes in the wake of former Cuomo top aide Joseph Percoco’s conviction on bribery charges in connection with the CPV power plant in Wawayanda. While working for Cuomo, Percoco had an office adjoining Cuomo’s in New York City while on the governor’s political payroll. Percoco reportedly had complete security access to the governor’s office and made at least 837 telephone calls from the office.

That activity was illegal, Molinaro said.

“I am filing the complaint with the New York City Police Department recognizing they have a lot of very important issues to address but my hope is this will prompt the appropriate law enforcement such as the Manhattan district attorney and others to take this violation of law seriously.”

Molinaro said he believes that “services were stolen from New York State taxpayers at Governor Cuomo’s explicit direction, and that can’t be allowed to stand.”
