Andrew Cuomo is probably right about this

Reported in the NY Times:

Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat seeking his third term who is holding a sizable advantage in polling for the general election, launched the first salvo last month — raising questions about a job that Mr. Molinaro’s wife, Corinne Adams, had held for three years at a Hudson Valley architectural firm, Tinkelman Architecture. Mr. Molinaro, 42, and Ms. Adams, 31, were married in November 2015, several months after she got the job.

Mr. Cuomo’s campaign has suggested that Ms. Adams’s employment at the company was questionable, citing about $70,000 in county contracts and hundreds of thousands of dollars in other subsidies that Tinkelman received from a Dutchess County development agency.

Cuomo is probably right about this. It’s standard practice for wives of politicians to have cushy jobs they never would have earned if not for their husband. Remember Michele Obama’s job as a hospital administrator making more than $250,000/year, plus she was also a director for a publicly traded company making more money on top of that?

It pays to be married to a politician.

  2. Or the brother in law. Here’s the best, and perhaps only, screen representation of patronage seeking in cinema. From Casino.

  3. The Cuomo family are right-wing mafiosi in left-wing political clothing. They, like most of the mafia types, discovered that they could get rich via government regulation as the ‘legal’ protection racket, and here hypocritically attack Irish-Anglo (?) rivals for doing the same.

    When the Cuomos say America is not great, that’s their upbringing and plan for the rest of us.
