Disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo may be leaving the governor’s mansion but he still wants to collect a check for the rest of his life. Cuomo has filed paperwork that if approved would grant him a $50,000 annual pension for the rest of his life.

The Daily Wire reports:

“The Empire Center crunched the numbers based on Cuomo’s annual pay and years of service and estimated he would be eligible for $4,222 a month in retirement income or $50,662 a year for the rest of his life,” said the Post. “Currently, a public official could have his or her pension reduced or revoked if convicted of a felony under the ‘Public Integrity Reform Act’ approved by Cuomo in 2011, his first year as governor.”

But resignation doesn’t revoke a pension under the act approved by Cuomo.

In the State Assembly, a bill has been introduced to mandate forfeiture of a pension under certain circumstances, but the legislation requires a constitutional amendment, which is unlikely.

New Yorkers were appalled by the idea of their taxes going towards Cuomo for the rest of his life.

“The only reason I would support Cuomo getting a pension is if he donated it to the harassment victims or the nursing home families whose loved ones died from COVID because of his policies,” Tracey Alvino said, whose father was infected with COVID-19 in a Long Island nursing home and later died.

Cuomo is still under investigation.

I can’t stand Cuomo, but absolutely do think we should lower ourselves to thoughts like you shared. And, get concerned with thoughts like that possibly triggering someone doing something stupidly evil. Definitely, think he should be stripped of any benefit from his time in office, plus pay penalties for the harm he did > but that needs to be done in an appropriate just manner. Just saying.

On my comment replying to Fred > where it says ‘absolutely do think’ , it should say ‘absolutely do not think’ we should lower ourselves… and I couldn’t find a way to correct it after it posted. Sorry for the typo.

Oh, we GOT IT, Arlene. And Yes, you ARE certainly Correct. But to even Think of “rewarding” that pompous ASS with a pension is beYOND comprehension.
Which of course means that New York WILL grant him that! If it wasn’t for BAD moves, that shithole state wouldn’t make Any
moves at all.

Don’t bla.e all NYers a big part of the problem is of 19,400,000 league residents in NY 8,000,000 live in NY NYC. A very large portion of us in Northern NY are Republicans.

Yes, you ARE Correct, Jim. I made an interesting trip out East in October of ‘09 to attend my best friend’s 1st born son’s wedding, took in Fort Ticonderoga (one of my All-Time FAVORITE places!), Cooperstown on The Glimmerglass, Lake George, the Adirondack Museum, etc, and I was Amazed AND Heartened to meet and HEAR about 90% of the people I talked to and interacted with on the trip. NYC IS the Problem, as well as the Eastern Seaboard. Just like here in Michigan we have the Absolute Hellhole Detroit area to ruin EVERYTHING with OUR politics.Thank God I’m in a SW Grand Rapid suburb on the extreme west side of the state.
So DO accept my Apology!

ALL the talk at That time was about the New America Hating Black Muslim that had just been elected, and I don’t think I encountered ONE person that thought favorably of him OR the direction this country was going in.

Agreed. And the appropriate manner would be to arrest him, indict him, convict him, and hang him for the thousands of murders he willfully and maliciously committed, along with the egregious crimes he has committed against women, not to mention colluding with others to hide the death numbers and sexual assault cases. No sentence would be too much, not enough. This piece of malignant evil deserves nothing less than a quick death…although personally, I believe it should be long and drawn out. Perhaps a firing squad or the electric chair would be an appropriate way to eliminate this walking, breathing evil living amongst us.
