Andrew gets some strong weekend press

The blog TPM Muckraker floated Andrew Cuomo's name as a potential Supreme Court justice. JD thinks thats not likely but its fun imagining a big burr under Scalia's saddle.

And the NY AG is expanding his public pension investigation into financial firms that quietly hired lobbyists and political consultants to win investments through the state's massive pension fund. Cuomo said his office issued more than 100 subpoenas to investment firms and their agents, many of whom have deep political ties, to determine if they hired lobbyists and political operatives rather than licensed brokers to curry favors.
