By Fredric U. Dicker

Cuomo claimed last week that he had “nothing to do’’ with Glenwood Management Corp., the controversial, influence-seeking company controlled by Manhattan real-estate mogul Leonard Litwin that has been cited in the federal corruption charges brought last week against Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos (R-Nassau) and in January against then-Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-Manhattan).

But that doesn’t appear to be Glenwood’s view of things.

“They are a donor of mine. They are a donor of many elected officials . . . and that’s basically the interaction. I’ve had nothing to do, except they’ve been political supporters of mine,’’ Cuomo told reporters in Syracuse.

However, the most recent lobbying records filed with the Joint Commission on Public Ethics show that Litwin’s Glenwood, a major beneficiary of real-estate tax incentives, which has directly or indirectly contributed more than $1 million to Cuomo’s campaigns, was lobbying the governor’s office at least as recently…

Ms. Miller, a long time reporter for the New York Times, where she won a Pulitzer Prize for her coverage of Osama Bin Laden, speaks with O’Keefe about her new book, The Story, as well as a host of topics she has covered during her storied career. O’Keefe and Miller discuss her coverage of Scooter Libby, both Iraq wars, weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), and her time in jail for refusing to reveal a confidential source.

“It was a time to really reflect,” says Ms. Miller, who spent 85 days in jail. “It was difficult, but once I decided I would consider it a reporting assignment, it was not uninteresting.”

This is the second…

Girl ScoutsThe Girl Scouts are now allowing transgender boys to join their troops. (Flickr/Commons)

On days like today, I’m glad I was never a Girl Scout. Don’t get me wrong, the principles Girl Scouts of America teaches—courage, confidence and character—are historically helpful and the cookies are no doubt delicious. But the group’s latest move left a bad taste in my mouth.
A new Girl Scouts of America policy extends membership to boys who identify as girls. In other words, this girls group is now embracing transgender boys.

Albany, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been busy in recent days, speaking out against campus sexual assaults, touting an education tax credit and visiting the site of a nuclear power plant fire.

Albany’s ongoing political meltdown, however, is proving harder to address, even as it prompts questions about Cuomo’s ties to a real estate developer at the center of the most recent corruption scandal.

Former Senate Leader Dean Skelos is charged with extorting payments for his son from the developer, who is one of Cuomo’s top donors. Skelos is fighting the charges.

Cuomo initially said he had not discussed state business with the developer, but his staff acknowledged that they met three times in 2011 to discuss rent regulations.

Cuomo’s spokesman says the governor simply forgot.
