    As such, is it any wonder why he is using the Comptroller as the "guinea pig" for his plan?

    DiNapoli is a stand up guy.  He'll accept the funding.  His Republican challenger, whoever that may be, likely won't.

    As such, the Republican will be able to easily outraise DiNapoli (likely with Cuomos help), and DiNapoli will get creamed in November.

    Cuomo wants a Republican partner in crime at the Comptrollers office.  If it wasn't for DiNapoli, he already would have decimated the states pension plans and their trust funds.  Luckily, DiNapoli, as the funds sole trustee, had some say-so that Cuomo just couldn't overrride.

      why would DoNapoli accept this now?

        he has a choice?

        What, exactly, does the state comptroller have to do with passing and signing legislation into law?
