The Working Families Party in New York did itself a great disservice by endorsing Andrew Cuomo. For the first time in a long time I will not be voting on the Working Families line.
Despite his horrendous, anti-social justice, even pro-Republican, track record, they endorsed him in the Governor's race based on his promise to change his stripes.
He has of course not changed his stripes, already abandoning some of his promises, and indicating that -- once elected -- he is going to backtrack on virtually all of them.
Andrew Cuomo is a Blue Dog Democrat, a Democrat in name only, whose primary modus operandi is to curry favor with large corporations.
He has no connection to progressive values whatsoever.
Andrew Cuomo is no Mario Cuomo. In this case the apple fell very far from the tree.
