NY Governor Andrew Cuomo Made $783,000 in Royalties From a Book That Only Sold 3,200 Copies

(Gateway Pundit) – Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s tax returns show royalties from his book earned him $783,000 despite the fact that it only sold 3,200 copies.

International Business Times reports:

Fox News Channel parent News Corporation may be wrapped up in the sexual harassment accusations surrounding host Bill O’Reilly, but the company is facing another long-running scandal involving what appear to be exuberant payments to a Democrat — payments that occurred even as News Corp. was lobbying the New York State executive branch, which Gov. Andrew Cuomo oversees.

The New York governor, whose memoir was published by the News Corp.-owned HarperCollins in 2014, saw his gross income more than double last year, to $417,748 for 2016 (from $196,243 the year before), the Buffalo News reported Tuesday.

Cuomo attributed $218,100 of that increase to sales of his memoir, “All Things Possible: Setbacks and Successes in Politics and Life.”

In 2015, the governor reportedly earned zero income from book sales and in the nearly three years that it’s been on the market, it has sold just 3,200 copies. But Cuomo, the Buffalo News found, reported that he received a total of $783,000 from HarperCollins in book sales over the past three years, a number that would translate to royalty payments of nearly $244.69 per copy. On Wednesday, the book was selling on Amazon for $13.05.

A spokesperson for Gov. Cuomo told International Business Times, “This payment was contractual and per the agreement with the publisher.” A spokesperson from HarperCollins said the publisher does not “comment on financial matters relating to our books.” News Corp. did not respond to IBT requests for comment.

News Corp., in the meantime, was registered as a lobbying client as recently as December 2016, according to the New York State government lobbying database. The mass media company, created and headed by Executive Chairman and former CEO Rupert Murdoch, has a long history of lobbying Cuomo’s office for the passage of bills beneficial to its businesses, as previously reported by IBT.

2015 is a year that is very important as far as Cuomo goes, two important things to note: 1. Rupert Murdoch cedes power of his company over to his son, James Murdoch (Murdoch owns HarperCollins, Cuomo’s publisher); 2. Cuomo earns NO MONEY from book sales – could this be because of the transition period?

Look closely at New York and look closely at Cuomo’s book: why was Cuomo given such a large ‘royalties check’ when he hardly sold any books? What is going on here? Seems a bit like a deli being used as used as a cover for the mafia – is a book really a cover for financial payouts/bribes leading to something much more sinister? Pull the thread . . .

Murdoch was married to Wendi Deng, some speculate she was a Communist spy – did they divorce because she was a spy? or because people found out? Murdoch funnels money into a huge globalist, open borders entity. Something to note: Cuomo lobbies hard in favor of open borders. Cuomo’s father, Mario Cuomo, was also thought to be involved with the mafia.

Hillary Clinton was a New York Senator with many ties to New York politics and just so happened to have announced her candidacy for the presidency a month prior to the ceding of power to James Murdoch, a globalist with liberal leanings. Was the ‘royalties check’ a payment from open borders Murdoch to perhaps help Hillary lock down New York?

A little more to chew on . . .

Cuomo says he didn’t know a bill he signed benefited Murdoch. Just pull the thread . . .

Another important thing to think about . . .

Andrew Cuomo’s former right-hand man and political/physical “muscle”, Joseph Percoco, was hit in 2016 with a 14-count indictment and “seven others on corruption charges in two wide-ranging bribery schemes”.

Cuomo was not charged with any wrongdoing.

The Observer reported around the time of the case:

Percoco, the governor’s former executive deputy secretary, will be just one of several figures arrested on still unknown charges in relation to an alleged bribery and kickback scheme, according to the Journal. Percoco served under Cuomo’s father and has been close to the governor for much of his life—so much so that Cuomo has described him as a brother.

Cuomo has a rich history.
