Let the sun shine in

Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo today unveiled his long-awaited “Project Sunlight,” a new good-government tool that his office has been working on for the better part of the year.

And Cuomo Said, Let There Be Light

The project is a essentially a large database that knits together information on legislation, lobbyists, campaign donations, state contracts and charities in a single, very user-friendly Web site. Our first impression is that this will be an extraordinarily useful tool for examining the interplay between money, politics and power in New York.

"Project Sunlight".....eh ?

Is "Mr. Sunshine" proposing solar panels
for the State House ?

I don't really think that he wants
to shed any light on the dark doings
in his family's past !

H-m-m-m....
His Excellency Mario "The Mouth" !

On the day of his daughter's wedding....
(heh, heh, heh)
he didn't grant me the favor I had asked for.....
so I didn't vote for his son.

Interesting digging here.

How come former US Senator-a Republican-Al D'Amato gave NYS Sen. John Sabini-a Democrat-$2500 on 6/1/06 (Sabini page 721-730) BUT not a nickel to former Queens Republican Chair Maltese?

I told you cats to watch Billionaire Catsimatides: $5000 to Maltese on 4/27/07

I love this site. Dig we must.

I think Project Sunlight is modern technology at its best.

And I see Cuomo as a man on a mission - this guy not only goes after the bad guys, but hangs them high! He spares no one - from crooked mortgage brokers and unethical attorneys and corrupt judges to political wheelers and dealers!

And I love him for it. Our society needs more people like him.

If Carol says he's okay then he must be so. So let me retract that opening comment of mine.

Cuomo - the legacy continues - the original - his Dad, set back NYS 4 decades and can be proud of the legacy he left: Buisnesses fled NYS to friendly southern states, bled the middle class dry with high taxes and championed a form of liberalism that only a hardened welfare client could love.
Watch out for Mr Sunshine, there is not an ounce of substance there just an old playbook.

"George".....
I love you resurrecting the old Con Ed slogan.....
"Dig we must.......".

In this case I recommend an amendment
of their full slogan.....

"Dig we must for a GROANING
(in place of "growing") New York" !

Well, I see I am alone here in my high regard for Cuomo.

I want to remind you all that it was just a short time ago that Cuomo criticized the Spitzer Administration for abuse of power for ordering State Police to keep an account of Bruno’s whereabouts when traveling in NYC with police escorts. Cuomo’s investigation opened a can of worms for Spitzer, and its subsequent media coverage exposed our Governor to us all as being not-too-tightly wrapped.

So let’s give credit where credit is due guys.

Another historic revision bites the dust. Cuomo whitewashed Spitzer in his "investigation".

Just look it all up.

Joe Bruno is a scum bag.....
a proven friend of every big time landlord.
He needs watching.
The sooner he's out of politics....the better for all!

Pappa Mario.....
once an altar boy at the landmark
St. Monica's church in Jamaica......
never raised a finger to ensure its preservation!

One fine day the neglected roof
of that unused building collapsed....
pulling down the outer walls with it.

What remains today is only the facade!

Thanks be to the Cuomo family.....
"bah-fongoola" !
