Statement on Cuomo Fundraiser Hosted by Ex-Con Nick Spano

Statement from Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor (R,C,I – Fishkill)

“Yesterday, Governor Cuomo was bragging about the tough new ethics reform package in his budget. Today, disgraced former state senator and ex-con Nick Spano will host a fundraiser for Cuomo. This sets a new record for hypocrisy from the governor. We can’t clean up Albany when the governor invites crooked ex-politicians into his campaign. Most New Yorkers think Albany is a cesspool of corruption. Why would Governor Cuomo take his campaign into that cesspool?”

“The governor should have never held a fundraiser with Spanos. Now, he should return whatever contributions he collects. They’re tainted.”
