New York - Following public calls that campaign donations hedged by corrupt real-estate firm Glenwood Management be returned, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will be returning over $20K, while there is still no word yet as to whether Gov. Cuomo will be kicking back the reported $1.2M his campaigns have pulled in over the years from Glenwood and affiliates.


NYPOST.com (http://bit.ly/1QQGyAq) reports that Glenwood Management is the firm that was pivotal in the corruption scam which recently took down New York State political bigwigs Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos.

Earlier this week, Cuomo spokesman Austin Shafran said, “the governor’s decisions are not influenced by contributions, as testimony in the trials showed,” but when contacted on Thursday and asked about whether or not the governor would follow Mayor de Blasio’s lead and return the money, Shafran declined to comment.

Nice photo. The only one now left to be indicted is Cuomo with two recently convicted felons at his sides.

Vito Corleone aka Andy Cuomo in the middle must be the next target.

its easy to return 20k......i bet if it were the other way around (deblasio took 1.2m and coumo took 20k) you wouldnt see deblasio eager to look like such a tzadik.
