Republicans in the state Legislature are seeking to ban statewide elected officials in New York from publishing books while they’re in office after it was revealed this week that Gov. Andrew Cuomo is set to earn $5.1 million from his memoir on the pandemic.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a contract for his latest memoir last year that brought in an initial $3,120,000 million dollars, with an additional $2 million expected to be paid to him over the next two years, according to his tax returns.
The extended deadline to submit income taxes is this Monday. Advocates want Governor Cuomo to scrap Nassau County’s police reform plan, the man accused of killing a Yale student’s been arrested, and Cuomo sought to make a controversial change in state law this week.
