Major Andrew Cuomo donor caught saying black NY lawmaker is worse than the KKK

Whenever people mention Cuomo as a possible Presidential contender, stuff like this is why NYers respond with some combination of and

Hedge fund manager Daniel Loeb, who is a major donor to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and a fierce advocate for charter schools, said this week that a black Democratic New York lawmaker was even worse than the Ku Klux Klan.

The New York Times reports that Loeb this week reacted angrily to a New York Times article in which Democratic New York Senate Minority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins lambasted Cuomo for purportedly prejudging her based on her race and gender.

While posting the article on Facebook, Loeb said that Stewart-Cousins for supposedly paying “fealty to powerful union thugs and bosses” while doing “more damage to people of color than anyone who has ever donned a hood.”

Loeb’s claim that Stewart-Cousins was hurting black children seems to have been based on her past opposition to charter school initiatives.


Maybe Cuomo would choose Betsy DeVos as his running mate.

1. Cuomo was a mistake! His incompetence in running the MTA is on full display, and his ability

 

to run the party in NY is in shambles.

The response to Loeb from Klein and Cuomo is weak!

We need a challenger next year with governmental experience and a loyalty to the party. Either AG Schneiderman or Senator Michael Gianaris.

2. the Democratic machine here is shameful in its quiescence.

 

Our state Senator is Jesse "IDC" Hamilton, and no one in the party has done squat about it. Eric Adams has been MIA on that front.

So I hold out very little hope that the city Democratic Party will do anything but circle the wagons around Cuomo.

What they get out of this deal I am not sure.

3. I share your pessimistic view.

 

Many people think in terms of left or right but it in NY it is competence versus don't know what the hell they are doing or they are just on the take.
