Cynthia Nixon anti-Semitism smear mailer came from within Governor Cuomo’s campaign team

Cuomo NIxon Meet In Only Televised Primary Debate

Nixon's position on pot was viral enough to cause rapper T.I.to gush over her on Twitter, though he admitted he doesn't know who the candidate is.

Nixon is an activist - and an actor, best known for her role on Sex and the City - who has hammered the two-term Democratic incumbent on political corruption, including the conviction of a former close aide, and the sorry state of New York's mass transit system, which has deteriorated under Cuomo's tenure. "But she's invited to my next bbq/family gathering and if she's running for anything..."

On Sunday, Cynthia Nixon became the latest aspiring office-holder to briefly lose her mind while attempting to eat on the campaign trail, when she ordered-in public and on purpose-a cinnamon raisin bagel with lox from Zabar's on the Upper West Side.

The planned opening of the Governor Mario M. Cuomo bridge to replace the old Tappan Zee Bridge between Westchester and Rockland counties was supposed to bolster Cuomo's image as a can-do governor, but a last-minute delay changed that narrative.

Nixon mocked Cuomo's attempt to maintain a low profile as she campaigned with progressive star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Cuomo rallied candidates and hundreds of other Democrats at an event inside Teamsters Local 456 union hall in Elmsford one day before the primary. "Nothing could be further from the truth", said Nixon. "I just don't believe it", the city council speaker, Corey Johnson, said on Wednesday.

"Cynthia Nixon did not have the money, didn't have the organization and never really caught on".


One of those candidates is Jumaane Williams, a member of the New York City Council who is challenging Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul from the left.

The race for attorney general also could leave Mr. Cuomo smarting. She said Cuomo has not aggressively fought for the funding in Albany.

It is intriguing to note that her first cousin once removed U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer endorsed Cuomo just last week.

Cuomo also claimed to have no knowledge of a Democratic Party mailer that questioned Nixon's support for Jewish people - despite Cuomo's control of the party and a recent $2.5 million contribution to its campaign operations.

Given that two close associates of Cuomo created the mailer; the state Democratic party, which Cuomo controls, paid for it; and Cuomo's campaign team tried to sell the same story to the New York Post, outraged New Yorkers aren't buying the governor's denial.

"Do gay people turn out to elect the first gay attorney general, or do African Americans turn out to elect the first African American woman attorney general, or do they turnout for Zephyr Teachout?"

"But no matter what happens, Donald Trump will have a headache", he said. The victor will face Republican Marc Molinaro in the fall.
