Andrew Cuomo's canoe as he paddled on an Adirondack lake with his three daughters, the family retrieved it from the water and he kept it. Cuomo shouldn't have. The Democrat could be fined $100,000 and spend a year in jail if convicted of violating a longstanding federal law that prohibits non-Native Americans from possessing bald eagle parts, including feathers.
