A new ad released by Republican Rob Astorino’s campaign blasts Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s record on ethics, saying he broke a promise to voters on cleaning up Albany.

The ad points to Cuomo’s handling of the Moreland Commission To Investigate Public Corruption and the reported involvement by the governor’s office in directing or blocking subpoenas by the panel.

“Burned again,” the ad’s narrator says. “NY voters trusted Andrew Cuomo to clean up Albany. Now he’s at the center of the biggest corruption scandal in years.”

Indeed, Cuomo ran on a platform in 2010 of clamping down on corruption in the halls of the state Capitol. As governor, Cuomo was able to get lawmakers to reveal more information on their outside income and overhauled the state’s lobbying and ethics regulatory body, the latter of which was met with mixed results.

After a string of corruption scandals hit the Legislature, Cuomo impaneled the commission to investigate the Legislature when lawmakers failed to reach an agreement with him on new ethics laws.

Cuomo shut down the commission with little fanfare in April after ethics legislation was agreed to in the state budget.

The governor’s handling of the commission, as well as the decision to shut it down, is now part of a federal inquiry by the U.S. attorney’s office.

The ad concludes by paraphrasing a column from Fred Dicker — who has been critical of the governor — that called him a “phony.”

“Andrew Cuomo. Another phony. Another Albany politician caught in the crosshairs of federal prosecutors.”
