Those of us who remember the Watergate scandal which brought down President Nixon remember that it started with a messed up minor burglary. Little by little more and more information came out about Nixon ‘s corruption. Then finally, the straw that ‘broke the back’ of Nixon’s administration came in one man, John Dean, a former Nixon employee who opened the doors of how Nixon used his corrupt power.
Today, August 27, 2014, the New York Times decided to deny the endorsement of Governor Cuomo because he had failed to rid the state government of corruption.
“He failed to perform Job 1,” the Times said in an editorial.
“The state government remains as subservient to big money as ever, and Mr. Cuomo resisted and even shut down opportunities to fix it.
The Watergate Scandal began with a fouled up burglary to get information on political enemies of Nixon and ended up bringing down President Nixon’s Administration.
When President JFK was ‘fooling around’ the media ignored it because they liked him. This time the reporters don’t like Governor Cuomo. This is a gigantic difference. Any negative information reporters can dig up they well use to crush Cuomo. If another John Dean appears, Cuomo will be brought down.
I believe it’s too late in the upcoming elections, and this stupid act of stopping the Moreland Commission is Governor Cuomo’s death knell for any hope of the Presidency.
