little-used power afforded the state's chief executive under the state constitution. That would be an abuse of power.

If it's in the constitution, how is that an abuse of power?

In fact, a good conservative like Scalia knows that the intent of the writers doesn't matter -- only what the words themselves say.

Let's see how many people who thought it was fine for Bush to politically remove attorneys from office thinks it's bad when a democrat does it.

I don't see a problem with opposing the law (assuming there is no state or local regulation barring law enforcement from commenting on legislation). If they refuse to enforce it, Cuomo has every right to fire them.

Fuller and more balanced article.  Cuomo has quite a rebellion on his hands.  Even a county clerk refusing to release any gun permit data to the public.

Cuomo Threatens to Remove Sheriffs if they Publicly Oppose His Gun Law

It's not "his" gun law, moran. It's the State of NY's. He didn't wave his hand and make it so; it was passed by the Legislature and the Assembly, who were duly elected by the public. But don't let that stop you from calling him a "tyrant," you farking drama llama.

Snapper Carr: I don't see a problem with opposing the law (assuming there is no state or local regulation barring law enforcement from commenting on legislation). If they refuse to enforce it, Cuomo has every right to fire them.


Uh, no.

The Sheriffs of NY State are elected officials and work for their constituencies.  They are not appointees that work at the pleasure of the governor.  If the governor wants to get rid of any Sheriff, there is a procedure proscribed in the NYS constitution to do so.  That is not tantamount to 'firing' them.  The process actually has some pretty strict criteria and must be done through the courts.  So, no.  Cuomo does NOT have every right to fire *them*, and he may not be able to get rid of them as he apparently wants to.

Spoken like a loyal brownshirt.

"Its not really up to the people to decide whethe an action taken by the govt is right or wrong"

Republicans create legal frameworks for fascism, Democrats whine about it and then once they are in power show us how its REALLY done.

One of the things that made Bush a bad president was his eagerness to declare that the executive could ignore laws with signing statements.  Executives are not supposed to throw their weight around the way they so know. Legislators need to do their job properly.
 
2013-05-26 08:55:21 AM  
The governor has been throwing out elected officials and replacing them with hand picked stooges for that last couple years in Michigan.  We all know it is a good thing when republicans do it though.

The position of Sheriff may be the most bizarre of all American government institutions. I don't know why it continues to exist.  Connecticut has no sheriffs.

Some sheriffs believe that because they are elected they are accountable only to the people, not the rest of government.

I always wonder about this when I go to the polls and the ballot includes a choice for sheriff. The city council hires the police and fire chief - shouldn't the county commission hire the sheriff? I vote for both the city council members and county commissioners, so...guh?

You know that joke about running for dogcatcher? I want to vote on our dogcatcher. Also that cranky old fart that mans the landfill on weekends...
