WBFO Brief May 26, 2021

In today’s WBFO Brief, a look inside JCOPE, the state’s ethics watchdog’s struggle to subpoena Gov. Cuomo’s vaccine czar as part of a broad investigation. And what to expect from tonight’s Super Flower Blood Moon.
Also, Buffalo’s City Council approves money to fix the tunnel underneath Washington Street that used to connect two AM&A’s department store properties, so the stretch between Eagle and Clinton Streets could eventually re-open to traffic. And, a group of Black women are mobilizing behind Erie County Sheriff candidate Kimberly Beaty, alleging that the Democratic Party isn’t open to the idea of a Black woman running on a county-wide ticket.
