ALBANY—Gov. Andrew Cuomo echoed the co-chair of his Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption, and said today legislators should comply with the commission's requests for information, for their own good.

”I think they're compounding the public sense that they have something to hide,” Cuomo said, after a storm recovery event in Albany. “Perception can become reality. If I feel like I can't trust you, I can't trust you.”

The Commission last week said it would look at how to “compel” lawmakers to give it lists of their outside business and law clients. Later, Cuomo said he has not been told by commissioners of any evidence of potentially criminal conduct.
