    NY State Law allows a sitting Governor to "remove" a sitting Sheriff...:eek: WOW!

    Were I a NY Sheriff with ambition for the Governors Office... I'd be pushing that envelope! :D TALK ABOUT A CAMPAIGN PLATFORM!

    Whether or not these Sheriffs push back will be important.

    That will be very important. Will they fight back, or roll over?

    If Cuomo really has vowed to remove them from office if they oppose him, how will he justify it to his entire state for removing every sheriff that's been duly elected by the people of their jurisdiction? (Um, they are elected up there right?)

    It wouldn't be much different than the president removing all the states' governors from their elected positions.

    OFF TOPIC!When NY built a highway in order to make,a easier link to the Winter Olympics in NYS,Silverman and Cuomo"speculating" purchased "much land"on the both sides of the new highway,then started insisting an on and off ramps be constructed at the sight,they didn't get it.

    The on and off ramps would have made Silverman and Cuomo's land,much more valuable then original purchase price,Silverman and Cuomo are two white collar gangsters,OH yes Andy's Father Mario Cuomo was the Governor of NYS at that time,another slimy SB!

    Pretty sure lill andy is blowing smoke. Sheriff's are ALSO elected officials. NY constitution may allow him to remove a Sheriff for something like a "criminal conviction" or a Federal civil rights judgement but I highly doubt he could get away with it for political speech.

    Sure would be fun to see NY's Junior dictator try! :D

    NY State Constitution
    Article XIII

    §13. (a) Except in counties in the city of New York and except as authorized in section one of article nine of this constitution, registers in counties having registers shall be chosen by the electors of the respective counties once in every three years and whenever the occurring of vacancies shall require; the sheriff and the clerk of each county shall be chosen by the electors once in every three or four years as the legislature shall direct. Sheriffs shall hold no other office. They may be required by law to renew their security, from time to time; and in default of giving such new security, their offices shall be deemed vacant. The governor may remove any elective sheriff, county clerk, district attorney or register within the term for which he or she shall have been elected; but before so doing the governor shall give to such officer a copy of the charges against him or her and an opportunity of being heard in his or her defense. In each county a district attorney shall be chosen by the electors once in every three or four years as the legislature shall direct. The clerk of each county in the city of New York shall be appointed, and be subject to removal, by the appellate division of the supreme court in the judicial department in which the county is located. In addition to his or her powers and duties as clerk of the supreme court, he or she shall have power to select, draw, summon and empanel grand and petit jurors in the manner and under the conditions now or hereafter prescribed by law, and shall have such other powers and duties as shall be prescribed by the city from time to time by local law.

    (b) Any district attorney who shall fail faithfully to prosecute a person charged with the violation in his or her county of any provision of this article which may come to his or her knowledge, shall be removed from office by the governor, after due notice and an opportunity of being heard in his or her defense. The expenses which shall be incurred by any county, in investigating and prosecuting any charge of bribery or attempting to bribe any person holding office under the laws of this state, within such county, or of receiving bribes by any such person in said county, shall be a charge against the state, and their payment by the state shall be provided for by law.

    (c) The city of New York is hereby vested with power from time to time to abolish by local law, as defined by the legislature, the office of any county officer within the city other than judges, clerks of counties and district attorneys, and to assign any or all functions of such officers to city officers, courts or clerks of counties, and to prescribe the powers, duties, qualifications, number, mode of selection and removal, terms of office and compensation of the persons holding such offices and the employees therein, and to assign to city officers any powers or duties of clerks of counties not assigned by this constitution. The legislature shall not pass any law affecting any such matters in relation to such offices within the city of New York except on message from the governor declaring that an emergency exists and the concurrent action of two-thirds of the members of each house, except that existing laws regarding each such office shall continue in force, and may be amended or repealed by the legislature as heretofore, until the power herein granted to the city has been exercised with respect to that office. The provisions of article nine shall not prevent the legislature from passing general or special laws prescribing or affecting powers and duties of such city officers or such courts or clerks to whom or which functions of such county officers shall have been so assigned, in so far as such powers or duties embrace subjects not relating to property, affairs or government of such city. (Added by vote of the people November 5, 1963. Subdivisions (a), (b) and (c), formerly §§5, 6 and 8 of Art. 9. Subdivision (a) amended by vote of the people November 7, 1972; subdivision (a) further amended by vote of the people November 6, 1984; November 7, 1989; further amended by vote of the people November 6, 2001.)

    As I suspected... A Sheriff must do something illegal. A Governor must be able to show "charges" and the Sheriff must be given an opportunity to answer those charges.

    I highly doubt "disagreeing" with "Little Prince Andy" rises to the level of a "chargeable offense"... even in the Peoples Repulik of NY.

    But after "Little Prince Andy's" ultimatum... I'd be shocked if his County Sheriff is not "looking" for "charges" FOR ANDY and his cohorts.

    Note to Andy... You just challenged and "pissed off" the only Constitutionally Elected Law Enforcement Leaders this Country has... Sure hope you can keep your smart ***... and nose clean. Your gonna need too!

    Well, they took away the 2nd Amend rights. What made you think they wouldn't take away the 1st Amend rights next.

    Umm... the fact that an Elected Sheriff:

    A. Has Guns
    B. Is the Constitutionally recognized commander of the militia
    C. Liberals know this and have "NO BALLS"

    Pukes like Andy of Albany would not say sh!t, even if they had a mouth full of it... if it were not for there confidence that Armed Law Enforcers would side with them and do there bidding.

    Andy crossed a line... Andy knows it... which is why a confidential source, speaking on his behalf, clarified that he WAS NOT looking to remove ANY sitting Sheriff.

    It would be a simple decision for me! I would quietly not enforce the law nor encourage my officers to do so. And I do not think Cuomo wants to tangle with the NY Sheriffs and the certainly not the International Sheriff's Associations.
    Of course in my opinion him and Bloomberg need replaced as soon as possible. Both are Dem. Socialist idiots.

    Andy has ignited an upstate sh!tstorm against him. The Sheriffs up here actually are very powerful and as elected officials have the support of the majority of voters. They cant get re-elected if they piss on the folks that elect them and were not partisan when it comes to electing our head Lawman. These guys dont report to Albany or The State Troopers, they report to us!

    Good... they need to keep the heat on Andy... and they need to point out to the entire Country that as Top Cops, their opinions are the only ones that matter.

    They need to help the population understand that the Head of the Highway Patrol... and every Cities Chief of Police... is nothing more that a political appointee who say only what there told to say by their elected masters... I.E. Governors and Mayors.

    Elected Sheriff's are the only Top Cops that we, the voters, can hold accountable... therefore Sheriff's and there Deputies are the ONLY LEO authority I recognize.
