Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on New Facebook Rules for Political Ads
Share

"Our election system is the backbone of our democracy, and we cannot sit silently by as foreign entities interfere in our elections. Last week, New York became the first state in the nation to pass comprehensive legislation requiring transparency in political advertising online and combating attempts by foreign entities or individuals to influence voters.

"I commend Facebook for following New York's lead and doing the right thing. It is increasingly clear that social media has become a key medium for dangerous foreign influence in our elections, and social media companies like Facebook have a responsibility to do everything they can to stop it.

"New York is proud to be leading the way to protect the sanctity of our elections. In the face of the federal government's complacency and inaction, New York will lead. And as today has shown, as New York goes, so goes the nation."
