New York's inspector general says a state trooper should have been disciplined for being romantically involved with a daughter of Andrew Cuomo while he served on the former governor’s security detail. The watchdog report released Friday comes more than two years after the relationship was discovered by top police brass and former Trooper Dane Pfeiffer was transferred to a post about 150 miles north of the governor’s mansion in Albany. The inspector general's report does not conclude Cuomo did anything wrong but faults state police for not following their own procedures after finding out about the relationship.

Unionized workers at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, frustrated with the progress of contract negotiations, have authorized a one-day strike for later this week. The workers at the museum known as MASS MoCA said Monday they have scheduled a strike and picket outside the museum from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Friday. The union, affiliated with the United Auto Workers Local 2110, represents about 100 full- and part-time workers, including curators, educators and professional staff. The museum will remain open during the one-day strike. A museum spokesperson said news of the strike was disappointing given that contract negotiations have been going well.
