Common Cause/NY Responds to JCOPE Appointments

As Attorney General, Governor Cuomo was as aggressive about pursuing consumer fraud as he was about policing public integrity, within the narrow limits of his office. By placing a prosecutor at the helm of the newly created JCOPE, it’s clear that the commission is well armed in the effort to provide rigorous ethics oversight of the Executive and New York State. This is a pivotal step toward real reform,” said Susan Lerner, Executive Director of Common Cause/NY.
