Albany, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is calling on Republican opponent Rob Astorino to release five years of tax returns.
Astorino, the Westchester County executive, has reported income from a national radio company on county financial disclosures.
A Cuomo campaign spokesman says Astorino should answer questions about the work and notes that Cuomo and other state leaders consistently release their returns.
Astorino, a former radio producer, has said the income is for consulting work he does in his spare time. His campaign says Monday that Astorino’s last tax return would be released, and called on Cuomo to release permits for renovations to the home the governor shares with his girlfriend Sandra Lee.
The campaign accuses Cuomo of refusing to let a tax assessor see the renovations.
