Would be Hugo Chavez style dictator Andrew Cuomo said there was no place for Conservative’s now that he and New York City Mayor De Blasio are in charge. Looks like he’s out to prove it.. In spite of having just going through an IRS audit and coming up clean. New York’s Department of Labor has subpoenaed all of Project Veritas’ employee and financial records to see if they can find something to charge the film maker with..
Do they have any probable cause for the investigation? The better question might be, do they need probable cause in Obama’s America?
From the Daily Beast article Conservative Activist James O’Keefe Claims Cuomo Is Trying to Run Him Out of NY
Now James O’Keefe, the conservative activist whose deceptively edited videos helped bring down ACORN and led to the resignation of top brass at National Public Radio, says that Cuomo’s administration is in fact trying to run him out of the state.
O’Keefe’s organization, Project Veritas, has had its headquarters in Westchester County, just north of New York City, since 2011. And O’Keefe says that the state’s Department of Labor is now demanding two and a half years worth of financial and payroll documents and threatening them with a subpoena.
“Despite the fact that Project Veritas’s finances are meticulously maintained to the penny, Governor Cuomo and the New York Department of Labor is on a witch-hunt, demanding all documents and financials since our founding,” reads a post on the group’s website. “This is nothing more than meritless, politically-driven targeting. Governor Cuomo said it himself–we don’t belong in New York.”
According to O’Keefe, the group compiled the requested documents for a meeting scheduled last December. However, compliance officials from the Department of Labor failed to appear.
It could be because Cuomo’s administration is scared O’Keefe might do one of the exposes about Cuomo or DeBlasio like some of the others that have made him a conservative icon..
