Unlike Tom Reynolds new ad — a minute-long mea culpa ending with the phrase “Looking back, more should have been done, and for that, I’m sorry” — Pirro is not apologizing for her mess.
Instead, she continues her seemless transformation from accused to accuser.
Nothing specific there, but enough to insinuate that Cuomo has something to hide about his involvement with a U.S. political jihad by the U.S. Attorney.
Cuomo, meanwhile, is still managing to stay out of the argument. Sort of.
The script is after the jump.
UPDATE: In response to the ad, Cuomo spokeswoman Wendy Katz said, “Mrs. Pirro claimed two weeks ago that the multiple criminal investigations of her were baseless and political and demanded the US Attorney to appoint a special prosecutor , the people of New York are still awaiting his definitive response–or does she believe he is part of the political conspiracy too.”

Leaked accusations. Faceless accusers. Sadly, that’s politics. Now, the U.S. Attorney admits there was no wire tapping. It’s time for this investigation into my private life to end and for Andrew Cuomo to come out from hiding. We need debates statewide. Andrew must defend his inexperience and his call for amnesty for lawbreakers. Andrew, attorney generals can’t hide. Let’s debate statewide.
