The trooper was promoted to the governor’s personal security detail, the state police’s Protective Services Unit, a year before she would normally have been eligible – after the rules were changed to make it possible, according to the independent report commissioned by New York Attorney General Letitia James.
“Ha ha they changed the minimum from 3 years to 2. Just for you,” a witness identified as Senior Investigator #1 wrote in an email to the victim, identified as Trooper #1.
Trooper #1 first met Cuomo while working a 2017 event in New York City. They spoke briefly. Then Senior Investigator #1 was told the governor wanted the female trooper on his PSU detail “tomorrow.” In less than two months, she was transferred there.
