In an effort to make NY state government more efficient, all state employees will have their email accounts closed and be given new accounts on Snapchat, where their messages will be automatically deleted in 10 seconds.
Cuomo announced, “This will make NY state government more nimble, more responsive, and more transparent, as well as saving hundreds of trees every week.”
Responding to critics who said this would make it harder for prosecutors to track illegal activities of state officials, Cuomo said, “Some people out there are whinny pussies who don’t want us to embrace the latest technological improvements.”
Email scandal shows N.Y. governor is either incompetent or corrupt.
