How to make money in three easy steps

| No Comments
  1. Be a craven liberal
  2. Get a hefty book advance
  3. Ghost-write a book that nobody ever reads

The latest iteration of this is NY Governor Andy Cuomo - from Legal Insurrection:

Cuomo Received $5.1 Million for COVID Book Despite Nursing Home Deaths
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s tax returns he released on Monday show he sold the rights to his COVID memoir for over $5 million.

$5 million for a book that only sold around 50,000 copies.

American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic came out in mid-October with the virus still going strong in the state.

Crown Publishing gave Cuomo the contract despite investigations into his nursing home mandate at the beginning of the pandemic.

Then we learned Cuomo’s aides kept fudging the nursing home death numbers while he wrote this masterpiece.

The publisher paid Cuomo $3.12 million in 2020. It will give him “an additional $2 million” in the next few years:

Cuomo’s financial records indicate that after taxes and expenses, his net gain from that initial payment of $3.12 million was $1.54 million. He has since donated $500,000 to the United Way of New York State to help with pandemic “recovery and vaccination efforts.”

The remaining $1 million and change has been placed in a trust for his three daughters. They gave him “the strength and love to make it through the crisis every day,” Cuomo adviser Rich Azzopardi said in a statement.

Crown Publishing announced in March it would stop promoting Cuomo’s book due to the scandals

But seriously folks.  This is just another example of money laundering and influence peddling in the deep state. Instead of just giving an out-and-out chunk of cash to the politician (illegal), they couch it in terms of payment for a book. The publisher is probably owned by some cartel that also owns a social media platform or a news media outlet - someone who benefits from legislation that Cuomo would push.

The other way to do this is to give the benjamins to a child - Hunter Biden for one. Nancy Pelosi's daughter, John Kerry's son-in-law, Chelsea Clinton, the list goes on.
