Cuomo: Attorney General Out of Control

In a wild overreach of government regulatory authority, New York State's attorney general Andrew Cuomo is investigating the study-abroad programs of elite colleges.
Investigators for Andrew M. Cuomo, the attorney general, are asking about who at each college is responsible for approving contracts related to study abroad, how each institution selects the programs it approves and whether it has received anything of value from a study abroad provider, among other issues, said the lawyer and representatives of some of the colleges that received the subpoenas and requests.
Former New York attorney general Eliot Spitzer re-wrote the rule book about the role of a state attorney general and not in a good way, if you are a libertarian. But he rode that populist creed to the governor's office and it looks like Cuomo is trying to do the same thing.
