New York State's Inspector General has resigned. Letizia Tagliafierro submitted her resignation yesterday, she didn't provide a reason, but she was a longtime ally of Governor Cuomo and had served as the executive director of the Joint Commission on Public Ethics (J-COPE). In 2019 it was allegedly leaked to the Governor's office on how commissioners of J-COPE voted on whether to investigate Cuomo's top aid Joe Percoco for misconduct - a vote that was supposed to be private. Just this week J-COPE voted to refer the matter to Attorney General Letitia James for a criminal investigation. Chief Deputy Inspector General Robyn Adair will take over until Governor Hochul names a replacement.
