What Does Governor Andy Have to Hide?

Accountability is for the little people. When Governor Andy 1% Cuomo takes money from people, the public has no business knowing who he takes it from, and it's all perfectly legal. Ethics, shmethics. So who knows whether or not the charter lobby has bought him off. Has the Society for Performing Unnatural Acts in Public Places got the ear of our Governor?

We'll never know. What we do know is, as a matter of principle, this governor killed a millionaire tax while our schoolchildren suffer. Are those millionaires funding his lobbying group? That's none of our business, says Andy Cuomo, who, amazingly, defends his record on transparency.

Apparently there are two kinds of transparency. There's the one that applies to teachers, who are guilty even if they've done nothing, and then there's the other kind, for folks like Cuomo. If you want to know who they're taking money from, too bad for you.
