A Sienna College poll taken in October 2013, found that nearly three-quarters of New Yorkers wanted the state’s Moreland Commission to continue its work. What that work is, and what the Moreland Commission is, however, is questionable. About the same amount of people who want it to continue are not really sure what it is.
“Well, New Yorkers may not know what the Moreland Commission is, or what it does, or who its members are,” Siena pollster Steven Greenberg said in a statement. “But if the choice is for the Moreland Commission to disband or to continue investigating political corruption, the answer is clear. Keep investigating ...” The commission is composed of sitting district attorneys from across the state, and was created earlier this year. Some 822 registered state voters were polled between October 14 and 16, according to the pollsters.
