New York - As US Attorney Preet Bharara continues to pick off members of the New York State legislature, including former Assembly Speaker Shelly Silver and Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, sources tell the New York Post (http://bit.ly/1JDokyE) that Governor Cuomo has become increasingly agitated and “paranoid.”

“Something is wrong. The place is paralyzed and the governor is not right. He seems frantic at times. He’s not acting the way he normally did,’’ said the source who is a Cuomo insider. “Cuomo is paranoid, his staff is paranoid and nobody can make a decision on key issues, like the 421-a program and other big outstanding issues. Hardly anything is getting done, Cuomo has gone into seclusion, you can’t get to him, you don’t know what he’s thinking.’’ The source added that Bharara’s indictments “badly shook’’ Cuomo because, “Nobody on the inside doubts that Bharara’s ultimate target is the governor himself.’’

Others with knowledge of the situation said Cuomo is “kind of lost, kind of out of it,’’ noting his recent conflicts with other high ranking Democrats, including Mayor Bill de Blasio, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, and Comptroller Tom DiNapoli. There is even talk that Cuomo’s current chief of staff, William Mulrow, will leave his post if Cuomo’s behavior does not improve. “It’s reached a point where nobody can cross a ‘t’ or dot an ‘i’ without the governor’s OK, and you can’t run a government like that,’’ sources say.

Adding to the tension in Cuomo’s office is the sudden disappearance of Joe Percoco, often referred to in Albany circles as Governor Cuomo’s “enforcer.” Democrats say Percoco has been MIA which is highly unusual given his high profile role and involvement in all matters. “There are a lot of questions about what’s going on with Joe and very few answers,’’ said one Democratic insider. “You can occasionally get him on the phone, but he’s not around the way he once was and people are wondering why not.”

I remember that Cuomo was secretary of Health and Human Services when he pushed for mortgages without and proof that you could pay. That brought down our economy and had all the Dumocrats blaming Bush.

Let him go into jail like the rest of the crooks. That he brought a mistress into the governors mansion proved what a beheima he was.

Please don't send him to jail while DeBlasio is still loose. Cuomo is the only thing out there to thwart the David Dinkinks wannabe.

I don't think he was HHS secretary.... I think he was HUD secretary

Cuomo has always been a paranoid bully. He has a huge enemies list and is vindictive. His only ambition is to be the first Italian American president. Feh
