Cuomo Pardons 24k Parolees; Including A Cop Killer

Albany, N.Y. - Governor Cuomo is issuing the first set of conditional pardons of more than 24,000 parolees, a move that restores their right to vote.  

Those pardoned include convicted New York City cop killer Herman Bell -- who was granted parole last month.  The move reverses restrictions that Cuomo claims "disproportionately impacted New Yorkers of color." 

State Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan issued a statement saying the Governor's executive order is offensive to "thousands of people" who have been victimized by "hardened criminals."
