NEW YORK, N.Y. -- In response to news that Joseph Percoco, a former top Cuomo aide, was sentenced to six years in prison with three years supervised release on corruption charges, Susan Lerner Executive Director of Common Cause/NY issued the following statement: 

"Percoco's sentencing sends a message to Albany that corruption is not tolerated. Now is a perfect time for Cuomo to lead on real reforms like closing the LLC loophole, banning outside income for lawmakers and increasing oversight over economic development money. New Yorkers deserve better."
