Sat, Mar 25th 2017 06:30 pm

Gov. Andrew Cuomo released this statement on Saturday:

"As a New Yorker, I was disgusted and offended by the flyers promoting a white nationalist group in Lewiston. These messages contradict all that we stand for as New Yorkers.

"I am directing the State Police to work with local law enforcement to conduct a thorough investigation to find those responsible for distributing these repugnant flyers and determine whether this act is connected to any bias-related incident in the state.

"In New York, we are one inclusive family, and we recognize that our diversity is our greatest strength. Bigotry and hate have no place here, and we have no tolerance for intolerance.‎"
