Cuomo failed to get lawmakers to agree on a package of campaign finance reforms, and says he will now appoint a commission under the powers' of the state's Moreland Act, to investigate campaign filings at the State Board of Elections. The governor say in the end, it might even work out better.

"I think it's going to be extraordinarily effective in terms of public corruption," Cuomo said.

Cuomo says he "wouldn't be at all surprised" if the commission finds violations of the state's election laws.
