Cuomo Responds and Re-responds

Andrew Cuomo is pulling out all the stops to fend off the challenges on the credibility of his public record.

Yesterday, Cuomo was endorsed by the attorney general from Connecticut, who was involved in the lawsuit over HUD’s failure to enforce pesticide regulations when Cuomo led the agency. Then, Cuomo’s team released
a letter from Manhattan DA Robert Morgenthau thanking Cuomo for his “three years of public service…” (A Cuomo aide notes that those three years weren’t all in Morgenthau’s office, but rather referred to time Cuomo also worked for his father, the newly elected governor.)

Today, Cuomo announced he was endorsed by the New York League of Conservation Voters and is trotting out Ed Koch at an event tomorrow later today in order, basically, to endorse Cuomo again.
