Local terror plot targeted political party, figure

ALBANY, N.Y. — New
information has been released on the thwarted terror plot right here in the Capital
Region — Governor Cuomo was reportedly one of the intended targets.

A federal criminal complaint
says Glendon Scott Crawford and his accomplice Eric Feight were planning to use
a radiation device to attack a Muslim organization, a political party, and a
political figure.

According to reports, that
unnamed political figure was the governor.

He addressed the allegations
this morning on the Capitol Press Room radio show, saying “these extreme right
wing nutsies think of everything.”

At this point, it's not
clear why the governor may have been a target, but NEWS CENTER has uncovered
that Crawford was among the hundreds of New Yorkers who signed up as plaintiffs
in a lawsuit filed in March against the governor and the state legislature
challenging the constitutionality of the SAFE Act.
