Albany, NY - Governor Andrew Cuomo has ordered an investigation into the lane closure arranged by the NYPD as a favor to a Brooklyn businessman at the center of federal corruption scandal.

As previously reported on VIN News (http://goo.gl/1BwxfM), the NYPD closed one lane of the Lincoln Tunnel and coordinated a police escort to accommodate a visiting businessman identified as Lev Leviev.  Jeremy Reichberg made the arrangements for Leviev, who was on his way to a fundraiser for Mayor Bill de Blasio.

In a letter sent today to officials at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Cuomo called for a thorough investigation to determine if any Port Authority agents were involved in the arrangement, noting that the NYPD has no jurisdiction within the boundaries of the Lincoln Tunnel. Cuomo instructed the Port Authority to coordinate its inquiry with both the U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI.

Cuomo warned of “immediate and severe consequences” to anyone found to have participated in the closure.

“The State of New York holds the integrity of public service to the highest standard ,” wrote Cuomo.  “When those who are sanctioned to uphold the law use their position for personal gain, it threatens all of us.  We will simply not allow Port Authority facilities to be chips in some nefarious pattern of deceit.”

"The lady doth protest too much, methinks" is a quotation from the 1599/1600 play Hamlet by William Shakespeare. It has been used as a figure of speech, in various phrasings, to describe someone's too frequent and vehement attempts to convince others of some matter of which the opposite is true, thereby making themselves appear defensive and insincere.

Regardless, that I totally disagree with AuthenticSatmar with almost every interpretation or view of the world, nevertheless, kudos for his interpretation of Hamlet.

Normally, I would agree that Cuomo appears to be "protesting" too much. However, he and de Blasio hate each other, so I don't think that Cuomo would have done anything to help a de Blasio fundraiser. It's more likely that Cuomo is relishing the thought that this might undermine the mayor.
