The Moreland Commission released their report on public corruption to the public on Monday.

It comes one day after the group put together to watch over state government and root out political corruption sent the report to the governor.

The report says the investigation has turned up several problems.

They include phantom health clinics, misused campaign funds, pay to play arrangements, and inexplicable statutes.

Governor Cuomo is expected to use the commission's findings to push for ethics reform in the State Legislature.

The Daily News published a series of reports alleging the governor steered the commission away from his political allies.

The Governor issued a statement late this evening saying, “I want to thank the Commission members and staff for their dedication and public service, and look forward to reviewing the Commission’s findings in detail and continuing to work with the legislature to enact systemic reform.”
