Christine Quinn Calls Cynthia Nixon An 'Unqualified Lesbian' After NY Governor Bid

But Nixon took aim less at Trump - whose celebrity path into politics she is mimicking, albeit on a radically different ticket - and laid much of the blame for New York's "crushing inequality" at Cuomo's eight years in office.

Andrew Cuomo's (D.) Democratic challenger is a "unqualified lesbian". The State Democratic Party also did not answer requests to respond.

Welcome to a one-party town, where Democratic shootouts frequently happen in lifeboats. He was able to go after Lieberman for being too conservative and for voting for the Iraq War, which was flawless for Democratic voters in a year in which they were very upset with the war and Republican President George W. Bush. In some cases, that has produced crowded Democratic primaries, with candidates jockeying to prove their anti-Trump and progressive credentials.

The first to make her support known was Kristin Davis, the Charlotte York to Cynthia's Miranda Hobbes on the HBO series. I believe in her desire to be of service. Mr. Cuomo's time in office has been "an exercise in living with disappointment, dysfunction and dishonesty". During the campaign, he can point to a slate of accomplishments such as the introduction of a US$15 minimum wage, the launch of paid parental leave in the state and the passage of gun restrictions. You know that, and I know that, because we are on it every day unlike Governor Cuomo. "There'll be people who run".

The governor's former closest aide, Joe Percoco was convicted on federal corruption charges earlier this month, and several more former Cuomo associates face trial later this year.

The contest between Mr. Cuomo and Ms. Nixon comes with a healthy dose of local intrigue. She also shaded Nixon for supporting Bill de Blasio in the 2013 mayoral race. The two men have feuded over issues such as public transit and housing in the nation's largest city.

'Idol' contestant surprises mom with call from Katy Perry and Lionel Richie
Katy has her own response - "I love her... as a songwriter, as well", she says, before flashing a grin of her own. Katy Perry didn't miss a beat, although her tongue got a little tied as she talked.

Nixon has been an active voice for freedom and human rights among the New York Jewish community, despite not being Jewish herself.

Alen Dershowitz, a professor at Harvard Law School, self-declared human rights defender and pro-Israel activist, criticized Nixon for her decision to support the BDS movement and called on New Yorkers to "not support her bigotry" in the elections.

Former New York City Council President Christine Quinn has a well-earned reputation as a tough fighter. Cuomo's 66% of the vote against Nixon is merely a reflection on Cuomo's own favorable rating of 67%. Nixon's announcement in Brooklyn echoed key themes of Sen. She said, "I've got to say, I'm not anti-Chris Quinn".

"I didn't really identify as bisexual", Nixon told Michelangelo Signorile last spring.

While Quinn can appreciate that they are of the same political leaning on most issues, she condemned Nixon's critiques of Governor Andrew Cuomo, and insisted that it takes more than being "a reliably leftist celebrity" to run a state government.

"I'm surprised by this race".
