New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has been formally requested to immediately shut down the offices of The Commission on Judicial Conduct (the "CJC"), the state agency charged with overseeing the ethics of all judges in the Empire State. The request comes from a public integrity group after confirmation that the CJC has been involved in illegally wiretapping and other illegal "black bag operations" for years.
Governor Cuomo is asked to send New York State Troopers to close and secure the state's three judicial ethics offices: the main office on the 12th floor at 61 Broadway in Manhattan, the capital office in Albany at the Corning Tower in the Empire State Plaza, and the northwest regional office at 400 Andrews Street in Rochester.
The Governor is asked to telephone the Assistant United States Attorney who is overseeing the millions of items of evidence, most of which that has been secreted from the public- and the governor- by a federal court order.
Governor Cuomo was provided with the direct telephone number of the involved federal prosecutor, and simply requested to confirm that evidence exists that certain state employees in New York's so-called judicial "ethics" committee illegally wiretapped state judges.
The request to the governor will be posted at www.ethicsgate.com later today. (Media inquiries can be made to 202-374-3680.)
