Tague: Cuomo Fights For Women’s Rights …Until You Pay Him

A statement by Assemblyman Chris Tague (R,C,I,Ref-Schoharie).

Another chapter in New York’s saga of corruption unfolded yesterday after it was revealed that the probe into sexual predator Harvey Weinstein’s case was halted by Gov. Cuomo. Less than a week after the attorneys for Weinstein donated $25,000 to Gov. Cuomo’s re-election campaign, the news broke that the investigation would end.

“When Gov. Cuomo announced this summer he was pardoning convicted pedophiles so they can vote, I thought that was rock bottom for him, until today. The timing is just too convenient and I am disappointed that the governor can’t keep politics and greed out of such a cut-and-dried investigation. For someone who claims to be a champion of women's rights, this is the sort of hypocrisy that's become synonymous with the governor's eight years in office. We deserve so much better.�

This comes on the heels from earlier this spring of Tague’s calls for the Governor to answer questions regarding suspicious campaign donations from Crystal Run.
