left the law firm to run HELP full-time in 1988.[3][4] From 1990 to 1993, during the administration of
former New York City Mayor David Dinkins, Cuomo served as Chairman of the New York City
Homeless Commission, which was charged with developing policies to address the homeless issue in the
city and to develop more housing options.

Political career
Department of Housing and Urban Development
Andrew Cuomo was appointed to the Department of Housing
and Urban Development as Assistant Secretary in 1993, as a
member of President Bill Clinton's administration. After the
departure of Secretary Henry Cisneros at the end of Clinton's
first term under the cloud of an FBI investigation, Cuomo
succeeded him as HUD Secretary in January 1997 after being
unanimously confirmed by the Senate, serving until 2001 when
Clinton's administration ended.

In 1998, Cuomo's lauded work in the department garnered Cuomo, as HUD Secretary holding a
speculation that he could challenge Senator Al D'Amato but he press conference with then Treasury
ultimately declined, saying that he had more things to revamp in Secretary Larry Summers
the Department. Instead, Congressman Charles Schumer won the
Democratic nomination and ultimately defeated D'Amato. Cuomo was also mentioned as a candidate for
U.S. Senator in 2000 but deferred to First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In 2000, Cuomo led HUD efforts to negotiate an agreement with the United States' largest handgun
manufacturer, Smith & Wesson that required Smith & Wesson to change the design, distribution and
marketing of guns to make them safer and to help keep them out of the hands of children and criminals.
Budgets enacted during his term contained initiatives to increase the supply of affordable housing and
homeownership, and to create jobs and economic development. These include: new rental assistance
subsidies; reforms to integrate public housing; higher limits on mortgages insured by the Federal
Housing Administration; a crackdown on housing discrimination; expanded programs to help homeless
people get housing and jobs; and creation of new Empowerment Zones.

During Cuomo's tenure as HUD Secretary, he called for an increase in home ownership.[6] He also
pushed government-sponsored lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to buy more home loans issued to
poor homeowners, in an attempt to end discrimination against minorities.[4] Some believe that this
helped lead to the current subprime mortgage crisis.[6][4][7] Edward J. Pinto, former chief credit officer at
Fannie Mae, said "they should have known the risks were large. Cuomo was pushing mortgage bankers 1/3/2011
Andrew Cuomo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Page 3 of 11

to make loans and basically saying you have to offer a loan to everybody."[6] But
others disagree with the assessment that Cuomo caused the crisis. Dean Baker,
co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, said Cuomo "was a
contributor in terms of him being a cheerleader, but I don't think we can pin too
much blame on him."[6]

2002 New York gubernatorial campaign

Though Carl McCall was the favorite of the Democratic establishment, Cuomo
initially had more momentum and led in fundraising and polls. A turning point Cuomo as HUD
in the campaign was on April 17, 2002, when Cuomo said "Pataki stood behind Secretary
the leader. He held the leader's coat. He was a great assistant to the leader. But
he was not a leader. Cream rises to the top, and Rudy Giuliani rose to the top."
The remarks were widely derided, and even his father Mario later admitted it was a mistake.[8]

On the eve of the state convention, he withdrew from its consideration when he concluded that he had
little chance of its support as opposed to the favored party candidate, State Comptroller H. Carl McCall.
Later, in September 2002, on the all-but-certain defeat that loomed in the state primary, again at the
hands of McCall, Cuomo withdrew from the race, but his name remained on the ballot, as it did in the
general election, as the Liberal Party of New York candidate. In the primary, the withdrawn candidate
only received 14% of the vote. And then in the general election, he received 15,761 votes, out of 4.7
million cast,[10] handing a costly defeat to the Liberal Party, which thereby lost its automatic spot on the
New York ballot. McCall, who ran a poor campaign and failed to resonate with voters, was defeated in a
landslide by Governor George Pataki.

2006 New York Attorney General campaign

Main article: New York attorney general election, 2006

Some expected him to run for Governor of New York again, as a candidate for the Democratic
nomination in 2006, but Cuomo decided against a run when New York State Attorney General Eliot
Spitzer entered the race in late 2004. Cuomo declared his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for
New York State Attorney General in 2006, and on May 30, 2006, captured the Democratic Party's
endorsement, receiving 65 percent of the delegates' votes. Though Cuomo won the endorsement, former
New York City Public Advocate Mark J. Green, Charlie King, a two-time candidate for lieutenant
governor, and Sean Patrick Maloney, a former aide to President Clinton, also earned places on the
Democratic primary election ballot.[11] King dropped out of the race before the primary and endorsed

Cuomo won the primary with a majority of the vote, defeating his nearest opponent by over 20%.
Clinching the Democratic party nomination was considered a significant rebound following his
unsuccessful and unpopular 2002 gubernatorial campaign and at the nominating convention, June
O'Neill, the Democratic chairwoman of St. Lawrence County, called Cuomo "New York's own
Comeback Kid."[13] He won the general election against the Republican nominee, former Westchester
DA Jeanine Pirro on November 7, 2006, winning 58%-40%. Cuomo won New York City in a landslide,
and did quite well upstate, defeating Pirro in the Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, and Albany areas, as well
as in Westchester and Rockland counties. Cuomo only narrowly defeated Pirro on Long Island.

surveillance by the Governor's Office

Main article: Troopergate (New York)

On July 23, 2007, Cuomo's office admonished the Spitzer administration for ordering the State Police to
keep special records of then-Senate majority leader Joseph L. Bruno's whereabouts when he traveled
with police escorts in New York City.[14] At the direction of top officials of the Spitzer administration,
the New York State Police created documents meant to cause political damage to Bruno.[15] The
governor's staff had stated they were responding to a Freedom of Information request from the Albany
Times-Union in late June.[14] A scathing 57-page report issued by the Attorney General's office
concluded that Spitzer aides did not simply produce records, as the state Freedom of Information Law
requires, but were instead engaged in planning and producing media coverage concerning Senator
Bruno's travel on state aircraft before any FOIL request was made. [16][17] The investigation looked into 1/3/2011
Andrew Cuomo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Page 5 of 11

both Bruno's travel and the senate leader's allegation that Spitzer used State Police to spy on him. A year
long investigation and a 57 page report was drawn up by AG Cuomo's office and leaked by Democratic
State operatives (though not tied to AG Cuomo's office) to the Spitzer Group that has since been charged
with numerous felonies involving illegal use of state positions and resources, to smear Senator Bruno,
one of New York State's "three men in a room".[18] It also suggests that the governor's staff lied when
they tried to explain what they had done and forced the State Police to go far beyond their normal
procedures in documenting Mr. Bruno's whereabouts.[19]

The report cleared Bruno of any misuse of the state's air fleet, which had been alleged.[15][20][21][22] The
report criticized Spitzer's office for using State Police resources to gather information about Bruno's
travel and releasing the information to the media.[21] New York Republican State Committee Chairman
Joseph Mondello claimed that "Today's explosive report by Attorney General Andrew Cuomo validates
the frightening charges that Governor Spitzer's administration abused the New York State Police and
New York's F.O.I.L. laws in an attempt to set up Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno"[14] and that
"This disturbing abuse of power by a Governor is unprecedented."[14] The findings of the report were
endorsed by Spitzer's own Inspector General, Kristine Hamann.[14][18][21][22]

Spitzer responded at a July 23 press conference that "As governor, I am accountable for what goes on in
the executive branch and I accept responsibility for the actions of my office"[14] and that his
administration had "grossly mishandled"[14] the situation.[22] The Governor issued an apology to Senator
Bruno and stated that "I apologized to Senator Bruno and I did so personally this morning […] In
addition, I apologized to the men and women of the State Police, and to acting Superintendent Preston
Felton personally for allowing this esteemed institution to be drawn into this matter."[14] Felton said he
didn't realize he was part of a political scheme, and claimed in a written statement that "I have never, in
my 26-year career with the state police, knowingly undertaken any such action and never would […] To
the extent that circumstances previously not known to me have now given rise to that appearance, I am
particularly saddened."[18]

Spitzer subsequently announced that he would indefinitely suspend his communications director, Darren
Dopp, and reassign another top official.[23] When questioned about his promise to bring a new dawn of
ethical responsibility to state politics, Spitzer responded by saying "I will not tolerate this behavior […]
ethics and accountability must and will remain rigorous in my administration",[15] and that "I have
always stated that I want ethics and integrity to be the hallmarks of my administration. That is why I
requested that the State Inspector General review the allegations with respect to my office, and that is
why we have fully cooperated with both inquiries."[20] As of July 2007, Cuomo's office was considering
recommending disciplinary action against the Governor's office.[16]

Student loan inquiry

In 2007, Cuomo has been active in a high profile investigation into lending practices and anti-
competitive relationships between student lenders and universities. Specifically, many universities
steered student borrowers to "preferred lender" which resulted in those borrowers incurring higher
interest rates. This has led to changes in lending policy at many major American universities. Many
universities have also rebated millions of dollars in fees back to affected borrowers.[24][25] 1/3/2011

On June 10, 2008, Cuomo announced that three major

Internet service providers (Verizon Communications, Time
Warner Cable, and Sprint) would "shut down major sources
of online child pornography" by no longer hosting many
Usenet groups. Time Warner Cable ceased offering Usenet
altogether, Sprint no longer provides access to the alt.*
hierarchy, and Verizon limiting its Usenet offerings to the Big
8. The moves came after Cuomo's office located 88 different
newsgroups that contained child pornography.[26][27][28]

United States Senate

After Hillary Rodham Clinton became Barack Obama's choice for the position of U.S. Secretary of
State, Governor David Paterson was charged with appointing a temporary replacement until a special
election in 2010 for the conclusion of her Class 1 seat. Cuomo was seen as a leading contender for this
appointment (in fact, his name was first mentioned dating back to the 2008 Presidential primaries).[30][31]
Caroline Kennedy (the first cousin of Cuomo's ex-wife) was another leading contender, but withdrew for
personal reasons two days before Paterson was set to announce his choice, leaving Cuomo and Rep.
Kirsten Gillibrand as the most likely appointees.[31][32] On January 24, Paterson announced he was
naming Gillibrand to the Senate.

Cuomo was a candidate for Governor of New York in 2010.[33][34]

On September 18, 2009, advisors to President Barack Obama
informed Paterson that the President believed Paterson should
withdraw his 2010 gubernatorial candidacy, stepping aside for
"popular Attorney General Andrew Cuomo."[35] On January 23,
2010, the New York Daily News reported that Cuomo would
announce plans for a gubernatorial campaign at the end of March.
Later reports indicated he would announce his gubernatorial
campaign coinciding with the state Democratic Convention in late
County results of the 2010
election. May.[37] On May 22, 2010, Cuomo announced his run for governor
in a video posted to his campaign website. Cuomo announced his
choice for Lt. Governor on May 26, 2010; Rochester Mayor Robert
Duffy was offered, and accepted, the position on the ticket alongside Cuomo.[38] 1/3/2011

In the November 2, 2010 general election, Cuomo faced Republican Carl Paladino, a Buffalo-based
businessman who has been heavily supported by the Tea Party movement. Cuomo won the election for
Governor of the State of New York.[39]
