Now that one of Governor Cuomo’s former top aides has been found guilty of corruption, we explore the dark underbelly of Albany politics and the impact of the verdict on the Governor’s reputation and future political ambitions. Jennifer Rodgers, executive director of the Center for the Advancement of Public Integrity at Columbia Law School and former federal prosecutor, joins us with an analysis. Students and teachers here in New York and around the country left their classrooms for 17 minutes to honor the 17 individuals who were killed last month in the Parkland, Florida school massacre. The walk will serve as both a memorial and protest action, calling for immediate change to our nation’s gun control laws. We were on the scene to capture New York’s demonstrations, capturing the outrage, fear and frustration. Did Mayor de Blasio turn a deaf ear to student’s concerns about guns violence and safety in schools at a recent town hall? You be the judge. This is something you’ll want to see as we listen in. It’s New York Magazine’s 50th anniversary and they want to celebrate with you. David Haskell, an editor at the publication, joins us to discuss the invitation.
