New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is trying to run the conservative activist group Project Veritas out of the state, its founder James O'Keefe believes.

"We got a subpoena over the last week from the Board of Labor and they're asking for every single financial transaction over the last three years," O'Keefe told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"I'll be happy to cooperate but there's some funny business going on, especially when there's so much corruption in the state of New York and they're going after my organization and compelling me to give them every transaction.

"I'll comply but I'm getting really tired of it and frankly I think I'm going to follow Sean Hannity's lead and I think I'm going to leave New York, at least for the time being go back to [New] Jersey."

Story continues below video.



Project Veritas releases hidden-camera videos that bare corrupt practices involving liberal groups.

Cuomo recently tore into "extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay," adding they "have no place" in New York state. He later said the comments were taken out of context.

O'Keefe said among the documents the New York State Department of Labor is demanding to see by next week are general ledgers, journals, caches, pay roll records, checks, stubs, and copies of Social Security returns.

"Like I said, I'm happy to comply with all this stuff, it's not my first audit, I've been audited nonstop for the last three years but it gives us pause. We've got to take a step back and look at what's happening to our country right now," O'Keefe said.

"I'm a journalist, OK, and I've decided to maintain a small nonprofit. When you look at the corruption in the state of New York, when it comes to the pension funds have been robbed and the state university system, all the stuff that's going on, I wasn't going to look into these things but now I think I am.

"The American people need to know that they think this is just standard procedure, [but] it's politically motivated and it's got to stop."
