Gov. Andrew Cuomo indicated today he liked the thread the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption began pulling last night when it came to the state Board of Elections.

The Moreland Commission held its final meeting in New York City Monday night and used the opportunity to excoriate rather hapless officials at the state Board of Elections over gridlock and a lack of enforcement.

It was finally a chance for the Moreland Commission — under fire for reported influence from the governor’s office — to go on the offensive a bit.

Cuomo in New York City earlier today echoed much of what the commissioners to the panel tried to get at last night, especially the idea of a Democratic and Republican split board that can’t move forward on thorny issues.

“It doesn’t effectively do enforcement, which has been my point all along,” Cuomo told reporters. “You have these bureaucratic mechanisms that are basically gridlock by design. They are half Democrat, half Republican, but then nothing is going to happen. It’s almost design to achieve gridlock as bizarre a concept as that sounds. They’ve split the management so their is almost paralysis in the management.”

Cuomo had sought independent enforcement at the state Board of Elections as a means to exact some form of an ethics fix following a series of corruption arrests in the state Legislature this past spring.

Though state lawmakers had indicated an interest in a beefed up enforcement role for the BOE, the measure ultimately stalled in both houses.

Cuomo seemed to be interested in reviving that effort of enforcement for campaign finances.

“That would give people confidence if there was a check and balance in the system,” Cuomo said.
