Read the papers these days and you may get the sense that Andrew Cuomo has a transparency problem.
There was the redaction of records from the state archives. The use of Blackberry messaging to avoid traceable emails. The writing of speeches by Mr. Cuomo’s staff for those introducing the governor at events around the state. The administration’s pre-emptive review of all documents sent by the governor to the archives and removing anything it deems sensitive from public view. The Times has jumped on the story, with an editorial suggesting that he has ”a transparency problem that could easily put a dent in his growing national reputation.”
