Cuomo Backs Schneiderman For Attorney General

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo announced Sunday his endorsement for Eric Schneiderman to replace him as New York Attorney General.

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Ginny Kosola reports

Cuomo said he knew him since they worked together on Mario Cuomo’s 1982 gubernatorial campaign.

The two were joined by supporters at the entrance to Central Park Sunday.

Cuomo said Schneiderman can work on fighting crime on Wall Street, health care and the workplace.

WCBS 880’s Ginny Kosola also asked Cuomo about reports that his opponent, Carl Paladino, has a child out of wedlock. Cuomo refused to comment, but Schneiderman answered there were substantive differences between the two gubernatorial candidates without needing to mention such a topic.

    Schneiderman will make sure that the white, male gentiles get what they deserve, and the the LGBT(Q) community is adaquately represented.

      White male gentiles? Schneiderman is an amazing man, and will represent all the people of New York. Go Eric!

      Yep. They’ll get what they deserve alright. Schneiderman already pushed to rescind “harsh” laws that lock up criminals. Than he vows to ban all forms of self protection by law abiding citizens. But if you got caught with a firearm while committing a crime, he understands and you’re soon freed.

      Yep. I like this Schneiderman. It’ll be like the Koch years all over again. It’ll be fun. Watch those quivering stupid woosies running home for cover immediately after work.

      Yep, for things like “Melanie”, I will for for Schneiderman. The melaneis of the word deserves it.
