That half of the Legislature is complying with the Moreland Commissions on Public Corruption’s request for more information on outside income demolishes the arguments being made by recalcitrant lawmakers, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a conference call with reporters Monday.

Two politically connected law firms filed motions on Friday seeking to quash subpoenas from the commission, and the legislative leaders of the Assembly and Senate filed a legal challenge to the panel’s authority in probing the Legislature.

But Cuomo says the arguments lawmakers are making ring hollow.

“If it was really about principle and separation of powers then none of them would be complying,” Cuomo said in the conference call.

Going further, the fact that half the Legislature has already turned over information is “making a mockery” of the argument, he said.

“Why can’t they provide the information? And that’s what’s damning,” Cuomo said.

He added that any ruling limiting the attorney general’s power to subpoena the Legislature would “neuter” the office. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman deputized the commission’s members in order to inoculate the panel against separation of powers questions.

“You’re left with deputized attorneys general who do have the legal right to issue a subpoena,” Cuomo said.

But at the same time, Cuomo dismissed a question of whether the Moreland contretemps have poisoned his relationship with the Legislature.

“These relationships work on a number of levels. I have very good relationships with the members. I have deep personal friendships with some members,” Cuomo said, adding he attended a social service organization’s dinner Sunday evening with Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

“I talk to members all the time,” Cuomo said. “It doesn’t mean we don’t have difficult issues to handle.”
