State Assemblyman Says Tipline Reward Is Retaliation – New York State Assemblyman Andrew Goodell is accusing the Cuomo Administration of expanding a whistle blower program as a form of punishment to 51 Upstate counties that have passed legislation opposing New York’s Safe Act.  “The Cuomo Administration has expanded that program to all of Upstate New York offering a $500 dollar reward if a neighbor turns in another neighbor on the theory the neighbor didn’t properly register their rifle,” said Goodell.  The Jamestown Republican told YNN’s Mark Goshgarian that a Division of Criminal Justice Services tipline, created to curb gang violence in New York City, is now being used to target Upstate rifle owners.
