From the Morning Memo:

Rep. Chris Gibson last week in a Capital Tonight interview said the ongoing federal investigation into Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos is yet another a good argument for term limits and democratizing the Legislature.

Gibson, a Republican from the Hudson Valley considering a run statewide, called the latest batch of ethics and anti-corruption measures approved in the budget “disappointing.”

“The reforms we’ve done to date have been disappointing,” Gibson said. “If you want transparency, the executive has to start.”

Gibson added that change in the culture in Albany begins with Gov. Andrew Cuomo and how the Capitol does business, mainly the concentration of power in the governor, the Assembly speaker and Senate majority leader.

“One thing is clear: This three persons in a room is not the way to govern,” he said.

Gibson, of course, is hardly the only critic of three-men-in-a-room, and isn’t the first to raise an issue with the style of governing in the wake of corruption news.

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara mocked and criticized how power is allocated in Albany earlier this year following the arrest of now-former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

Bharara, as the prosecutor in the case, was criticized himself by a federal judge for making those public pronouncements.

He compared Albany to how the House of Representatives works, where rank-and-file lawmakers can have bills and amendments considered.

“We need to have a process like that instead of consolidating power,” Gibson said.

Nevertheless, today’s Siena poll doesn’t show the inquiry into Skelos hurting Cuomo.

His favorability rating stands at 56 percent to 39 percent. His job approval remains underwater at 44 percent to 55 percent, the poll found.
