In an end-of-year kibosh, Cuomo has vetoed a bill that would have permitted federal appeals and district court judges from around the nation to preside over nuptials in New York, thus denying them inclusion on a lengthy list of those so empowered, including the governor himself.
And like the decision to tie the knot, the reasoning for Cuomo’s disapproval — signed Friday — was distinctly personal.
“I cannot in good conscience support legislation that would authorize such actions by federal judges who are appointed by this federal administration,” he wrote. “President Trump does not embody who we are as New Yorkers.”
The veto, one of scores that Cuomo, a third-term Democrat, has handed down in the closing days of the year, left Republicans fuming and the bill’s Democratic sponsor befuddled.
“This is the least substantive or controversial bill I have ever introduced,” Sen. Liz Krueger said, adding that she had been informed of the veto by Cuomo’s counsel Friday. “I did not think the reasoning made sense.”
This is part of the cancel culture that infects the Left. Cuomo is so full of hate for Trump that he is willing to negate the power of the judicial branch just because he hates who appointed some of the judges. His rationale does not make any sense outside of his hatred.
