kitten corner: cuomo

i am just a kitten and not wise to the complex machinations of the apparatus of state, but i have done a little reading and i did come across the phrase “conflict of interest.”

unless i misunderstood, it seemed to imply that if you were getting paid to tell everyone what a good job you did that maybe letting you make up all your own job performance numbers and hide the real ones might not be a good idea and might encourage people to lie.

i’m not very good with human money. would a $4 million book deal be enough money to get people to do something like that?

thank you.
