‘Extreme conservatives’ want their money back

The governor of New York picked a group of people he says have no place in the state of New York. It doesn’t surprise me that so-called “extreme conservatives” would have no place in the state he rules. It is painfully apparent that New York, in its current state, is exactly where a man like Andrew Cuomo belongs, dishing out our tax dollars as if it is his largess and calling for public funding of political candidates.

If one were to reread the Village Voice articles of August 2006 and August 2008, specifically “Andrew Cuomo’s $2 Million Man” and “Andrew Cuomo and Fannie and Freddie,” both by Wayne Barrett, one will recall where Cuomo got his money. Maybe the “extreme conservatives” could ask him for some of it back so they could get out of his New York.
