Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters in Oneida earlier today that he’s an open book as far his campaign finance records go with the Moreland Commission investigating government corruption.

Asked whether the commission composed of district attorneys and legal scholars should review the contributions he’s received in the process of amassing a $28 million war chest, the governor said the panel had free reign to do so.

“Anything they want to look at, they can look at,” Cuomo said. “Me, the lieutenant governor, the attorney general, the comproller, any senator, any assemblyman. They have total ability look at whatever they want to look at.”

The question of probing Cuomo’s own campaign finances became more acute when The Daily News reported this month Cuomo had received $100,000 in contributions from developers before they were granted tax breaks approved by the Legislature and signed into law by the governor (the bill had been the result of negotiations between New York City and the Legislature).

In addition to having subpoena power, this Moreland Commission has also been deputized by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Several donors and political allies to Cuomo and Schneiderman sit on the commission.

Cuomo reiterated today the commission is meant to restore overall trust in state government following a series of corruption scandals in the past year that saw multiple sitting lawmakers arrested in unrelated scandals.

“The basic question is how do we get to a point where people can trust government. Now, this is not a new phenomenon. i don’t know that people have ever fully trusted government since our Founding Fathers started it. By the way, I don’t believe our founding fathers ever truly trusted it, right? That’s why they built in all the checks and balances,” Cuomo said. “So there’s always been a tension all throughout history of quote-un-quote trust in government. I’m doing everything I can do to increase the trust in government especially since we’ve had some cases that got notoriety in the newspapers about corruption in the Legislature.”

He added, “They should give you a sense of comfort and that’s what it’s all about.”
