Judith O’Kaye

July 29, 2010

To say that the emperor has no clothes would be a rather significant understatement. It’s more like he’s standing there stark naked and masturbating in public. 

And all anyone can say is: “This might be an error in judgment.” 

We understand and agree that we can’t have another governor resign in disgrace. That would make New York even more of a national laughing stock than it already is.  Still, doesn’t anyone find this situation to be absurd? 

Think about this: It was only a couple of years ago that all of Albany was in a tizzy over Troopergate. The Governor and his people were supposed to have “misused” the State Police by having them disclose who was using state aircraft and for what purposes. 

Now we have a governor who gets the State Police to intervene in a domestic violence case in an attempt to quash a news story that might embarrass him. And there’s no outcry about it. 

Judith Kaye says the State Police didn’t interfere because they didn’t pressure local enforcement to do anything. What about the fact that State Police Major repeatedly contacted the woman involved in the case? That wasn’t pressure?

Judith Kaye says that involving the State Police in the domestic violence case was actually ok because there might have been a security concern if the governor’s aide had been arrested. Huh? 

Judith Kaye says that the governor’s aides were sharing confidential information while her investigation was being conducted. And this somehow isn’t a problem? 

Nope, no problems here, just a few “errors in judgment.”

    If Andrew Cuomo wanted to undermine Paterson, the report would have come out much differently. Kaye would have reached a more realistic conclusion from the same set of facts.

    You-can’t-make-this-up fact of the day: Judith Kaye is actually related by marriage to Herb Teitelbaum, the disgraced former head of the Public Integrity Commission. They both have the same investigative technique, which is to see what you want to see and ignore everything else.
