Cynthia Nixon Pins Anti-Semitic Mailer Blame on Gov. Cuomo

LOVETT Jewish hit piece against Nixon latest unforced error by Cuomo and his campaign

And Ms. Teachout, who is pregnant and due in October, would be the first new mother to be attorney general; Barbara Underwood, who took over the department earlier this year after the resignation of Eric T. Schneiderman in the wake of allegations he physically abused romantic partners, is the first woman to be attorney general.

"They will show up and make themselves heard", Ms. Hitt said.

Cuomo on Sunday called it a "bizarre coincidence" and said he wasn't responsible for the old bridge anymore.

The poll was taken before questions surfaced about the anti-Nixon mailer - or before the state was forced to close the second span of the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge just a day after Cuomo held a celebratory ribbon cutting.

Cuomo also dismissed critics who suggested he sped up the timetable for the opening of the new bridge so he could get a photo op before the primary.

Two-term governor Andrew Cuomo, 60, leads Nixon 63-22 percent, up from 60-29 percent in late July, according to the latest Siena College poll of likely Democratic primary voters.


Cuomo controls the state Democratic Party and recently transferred $2.5 million to its account for election-related expenses.

"I didn't know about the mailer", Cuomo sad. "The way I ran this campaign, it's been on the issues, it's been positive". "As the largest infrastructure project in the nation, I think this project is of national significance".

"I have no idea who this brilliant lady is..." Instead, Berman has vowed to work with the Nixon campaign to send out a separate mailer to the "same universe of people" that received the initial attack.

The mailer says Nixon opposes funding for Jewish schools, supports "racist, xenophobic" calls to boycott Israel over its treatment of Palestinians and that she has been "silent on the rise of anti-Semitism".

Sources told NY1 that the mailer cost about $11,300 and went out to about 7,000 households. But during campaign stops in Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo Monday, Cuomo focused on President Trump, and didn't mention Nixon once.
