A new lawsuit has come out against Governor Cuomo over a pay raise that a non-profit group is calling unconstitutional.

The lawsuit comes just one day after the governor was sued over the special election for Chris Collins’ congressional seat.

The Government Justice Center, a non-profit group, calls the governor’s $21,000 pay raise unconstitutional. They say the governor is not allowed to have a raise during the term he’s elected.

A pay raise for Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul is also challenged in the lawsuit.
