Cuomo avoids pesky FOIL law for his emails: He has none
ALBANY — There’s one phrase Gov. Cuomo never hears: “You’ve got mail!”
Cuomo refuses to communicate with his staff by email, sources close to the governor revealed to the Daily News.
If aides can’t talk in person or by phone, they are told to use the BlackBerry PIN-to-PIN messaging system — a function that leaves no lasting trail because it bypasses data-saving email servers. It allows users to connect directly through their devices using Personal Identification Numbers.
Maybe this is the defense attorney in me, but I read this and thought “Cuomo has good lawyers.” One can make an argument that he’s being shady, but it doesn’t sound like he’s coloring outside the lines. In fact, it sounds like he’s tracing directly within them. If we as NY citizens have a problem with it, well, change the picture. I’d support that.
