A conservative group wants a ruling on whether Gov. Andrew Cuomo's girlfriend, Food Network TV star Sandra Lee, should disclose financial information as if she's the governor's wife.

New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, a religious-based lobbying group, asked the Joint Commission on Public Ethics for the ruling.

Thursday's request comes after The Associated Press reported the commission authorized Lee to use the state aircraft with Cuomo on official business. It deemed her a "domestic partner" in the "first family." Cuomo and Lee live in Westchester County.

The commission doesn't require Lee to file financial data intended to flag potential conflicts of interest involving elected officials.

The commission says the Legislature would have to change any requirement.

Cuomo declined comment.

The same group unsuccessfully sued to overturn the legalization of gay marriage championed by Cuomo.
