Governor Andrew Cuomo is directing state police to conduct an investigation after offensive fliers were found in Western New York.

The governor’s office says fliers allegedly distributed by a white nationalist group were found in Lewiston.

In a statement, the Democratic governor said, “Bigotry and hate have no place here, and we have no tolerance for intolerance.‎"

The investigation aims to determine if there is a connection between the fliers and other recent bias-related incidents in the state.
