Aides to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., have been sifting through state archives and removing documents from Cuomo’s days as state attorney general.

The administration also is reviewing all new documents the governor’s office sends to the archive, The New York Times reported.

One set of documents removed from public view involves files from the 2007 investigation into the use of the State Police for political purposes.

Cuomo’s name has been mentioned as a 2016 presidential candidate, and the screening of documents is in tune with others who have sought higher office have done.

The Times noted that when GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney left the governorship in Massachusetts, his administration purged all e-mails and top aides were allowed to buy their computer hard drives.

The Cuomo administration’s actions to restrict access to the archives first became public when reporters for The Times Union of Albany began noticing that documents they had reviewed later were removed by Cuomo’s special assistant, Linda Lacewell, and spokesman, Josh Vlasto, the Times reported.

However, Cuomo’s office maintains the archives had released documents that should have remained private, such as those protected by attorney-client privilege, the Times reported.
