There’s a $2.5 million contract for the team of lawyers representing Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his administration in the growing number of probes into sexual misconduct and allegations that nursing home numbers were manipulated.
For now, taxpayers are being handed the bill.
The Governor said that he will not be using his personal funds to pay for the legal expenses, which means that the cost will fall on taxpayers.
A possible change to this would be if lawmakers force the issue, or a court forces the issue down the road. Either way, it means a lengthy legal battle over the merits and cost of these cases.
