Cuomo denies knowing about mailer blasting Nixon as ‘anti-Semite’
September 10, 2018
Gov. Cuomo gave the “I Know Nothing” defense when asked about the New York State Democratic Party mailer that slimed rival Cynthia Nixon as condoning anti-Semitism, while the party’s executive director issued an extraordinary statement offering to put out a new mailer to the same households to repair the damage.
But Nixon wasn’t letting team Cuomo off the hook.
She said that’s an empty gesture because it’s unlikely any mailer could go out before Thursday’s Primary Election.
“I wonder if it will be on Friday, September 14. It is a little late,” Nixon said.
“I think frankly Andrew Cuomo should do a robo-call saying that he is regretful that the New York State Democratic Party has put out this information calling me an anti-Semite or for being guilty of spreading anti-semitism and nothing could be further from the truth,” Nixon said Sunday.
For his part, Cuomo pleaded ignorance while condemning the anti-Nixon mailer.
“I didn’t know about the mailer. I heard about the mailer. I haven’t seen the mailer,” Cuomo said Sunday following the backlash.
But Nixon said “I categorically don’t believe” that the governor didn’t know about the content of the mailer put out by the state Democratic Party that he controls.
“He’s the head of the Democratic Party. He controls the state committee,” Nixon said.
