A New York state trooper who was on Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s security detail and reportedly began dating his daughter wound up reassigned to a remote duty station near the Canadian border as a form of what some in law enforcement described as “highway therapy.”
Trooper Dane Pfeiffer requested a voluntary transfer, according to officials, but perhaps there may or may not be more to the story. “He was transferred to keep him away from the daughter because the governor didn’t like whatever they were doing,” an inside source told the New York Post.
The trooper allegedly established a relationship with Cara Kennedy-Cuomo, 25, after she moved into the governor’s mansion in Albany, N.Y., about seven months ago as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
They are allegedly still dating, which apparently requires the officer to make a 320-mile roundtrip to the Executive Mansion to see her.
“Records show that Pfeiffer bought a house in Saratoga Springs, near Albany, in 2018 and the dramatic change in his commute is considered a type of informal punishment that cops call ‘highway therapy,’ sources said,” the Post added.
Presumably because of union protections, “Cuomo ‘is limited in how much he can screw with him, so highway therapy is one of his few options,’ a source said,” the Post further claimed.

A Cuomo spokesman claimed that the governor played no role in the trooper’s reassignment, which a police official separately described as routine and was for the purpose of enabling him to gain more field experience. There was no finding of any misconduct.
While he may be in the clear on this particular change of scenery, Gov. Cuomo, the big brother of CNN mask-shamer Chris Cuomo, and Sleepy Joe Biden’s would-be attorney general, separately stands accused of transferring COVID-positive patients into nursing homes that allegedly resulted in thousands of fatalities.
Once the couple began dating, police protocol reportedly required any bodyguard in that kind of scenario to be removed from the security detail.
Trooper Pfeiffer, 35, a 2015 graduate of the state policy academy, has declined to make a public comment on the matter after apparently being contacted by media outlets.
In a digression at one of his haughty, self-congratulatory news conferences during the height of the pandemic, Gov. Cuomo ironically pontificated on a scenario that he termed Natural Defiance Syndrome.
“It’s not documented, but it is a psychological condition where if you say as a father, ‘I don’t like him,’ Natural Defiance Syndrome kicks in and then they like the boyfriend more because he is opposed by the father.”
