More Close Confidantes Of Andrew “Organ Grinder” Cuomo Under Indictment For Corruption

We profiled a Cuomo crony corruption case not more than a week ago.

Here, sir, have another –

Southwest Dutchess-

Joseph Percoco, a former top aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is awaiting sentencing following his conviction on corruption charges earlier this year.

[He] was found guilty of two counts of conspiracy to commit honest services wire fraud and one count of solicitation of bribes or gratuities.

Politico reported that more than 150 pages of letters from friends, family, rabbis and lobbyists have been sent to the court imploring the judge for a light sentence. He will face up to 50 years in prison when he is sentenced.

The bribes were arranged by Todd Howe, another former aide, infamous lobbyist, and close friend of Cuomo, according to court papers.

On the stand during the trial, Howe said that Percoco called the money he received in the “pay-to-play” scheme “ziti,” stating it was a reference to “The Sopranos,” according to a New York Post report. According to the report, before Howe took the stand, prosecutors unsuccessfully lobbied to play a clip from the popular HBO show before he testified.


These are nothing but government mafiosos. The governor is a thug as the day is long. You don’t surround yourself with these types of low-rent gangsters without knowing what they are.
