Schneiderman: Relationship with Cuomo is perfectly fine


YNN's Brian Dwyer took the worst right out of my mouth when he asked Attorney General Eric Schneiderman about his relationship with Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
A Wall Street Journal article concluded that the relationship is "rippling with unease."
Here's Mr. Schneiderman's response to that:
"The governor and I met in 1982" on the Mr. Cuomo's father's campaign. "We've been friends for a long time. We get along very well," he said, adding that there will naturally be some disagreements.
"I hate to say this in a room full of reporters, but not everybody gets the facts exactly right," he said.
Or something along those lines. Who knows. I probably got it wrong.
Anyway, we should have a full story on Mr. Schneiderman's main reason for visiting the north country: Announcing the results of legal proceedings against a company that was ripping off soldiers. (Indeed, to Mr. Schneiderman's point, this investigation was started during Mr. Cuomo's tenure as attorney general.)
More to come on other subjects, as well.
