    Cuomo blames weather for New York's population decline Posted: Sep 25 2018 03:25PM EDT Updated: Sep 25 2018 03:31PM EDT ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo blamed the upstate weather for prompting New Yorkers to flee to other states. Cuomo told reporters Tuesday that while job losses and high taxes once drove people to leave New York, his administration has ended that trend and improved the local economic situation. He said many of the New Yorkers leaving the state now are doing so for personal reasons or decisions that he called "climate based." The comments came after Cuomo's...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), anxious to build on the momentum set in motion by his earlier assertion that “America was never that great,” demanded a better measure of the nation's economic health. “I know that the Trump Administration is touting last quarter's 4.2% rise in GDP as a sign that the economy is booming,” the Governor observed. “But is this really the best measure we can come up with? GDP growth never got as high as 3% during the Obama Administration. But can we really say that Americans weren't better off then?” “The problem with GDP is that it is...

    Okay, I don't see anyone else starting it so I'm starting this New York Primary Election Discussion Thread. The big election of interest in this primary is Menshevik Cuomo vs Bolshevik Nixon for governor in the Democrat party. The latest poll gave the Menshevik 40 points over the Bolshevik but I think it will be much closer. Also I think this race will be the prelude for the almost inevitable split of the Democrats permanently into their Bolshevik and Menshevik factions. The polls close at 9 PM. And if their are other races you want to comment on, have at...

    Albany, N.Y. - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced an executive order earlier this year to allow 24,000 parolees to vote in upcoming elections after 7pm. That initiative will be on display for the first time Thursday as parolees, including sex offenders, head to the polls. Assemblyman Ray Walter of Amherst is warning parents. "I think parents need to be aware of it, school administrators need to be aware of it, and election officials need to be aware of it, and remove kids from after-school and athletic activities". Back in May, Governor Cuomo issued the blanket pardon, giving 24,000 parolees...

    Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo leads challenger Cynthia Nixon by more than 40 points ahead of Thursday’s Democratic gubernatorial primary, according to a poll published Monday. Sixty-three percent of “likely Democratic voters” favor Cuomo compared to 22 percent who favor Nixon, according to a Siena College poll referenced by 13 WHAM ABC. That represents an even bigger lead for Cuomo than he enjoyed in late July, when 60 percent of likely Democratic voters leaned toward Cuomo, and 29 percent leaned Nixon, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    It’s four more days until the big Democratic primary in New York, and gubernatorial candidate (and actress) Cynthia Nixon is pulling out all the stops. In an interview this week, she returned to one of the favorite talking points of Democratic socialists these days, Medicare for all. Speaking with the New York Daily News, Nixon was adamant that lawmakers should move forward and pass “her plan” rather than listening to Governor Andrew Cuomo who has managed to resist the idea so far. And how will New York pay for this massive show of generosity to its residents? Nixon openly...

    On the eve of Rosh Hashanah, Cynthia Nixon and her campaign supporters are demanding Gov. Cuomo and the state’s Democratic Party repent for a mailer emblazoned with her picture and the words “anti-Semitism.” “The mailers that Governor Cuomo and the NY State Democratic Party have sent out are not only an attack on my family, but on all New Yorkers,” Nixon tweeted Sunday. “At a time when anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, and other hate crimes are on the rise, it’s sickening to exploit people’s real fears like this.”

    The Democratic side of Congress is almost certainly going to look a little different after the midterm elections this year, as a result of the success of women and minority candidates in primary contests. Race by race, they've begun to make inroads into the traditional white and male establishment of national politics. The victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the Democratic primary against New York Rep. Joe Crowley -- a ten-term incumbent and the fourth highest-ranking Democrat in the House -- has been a beacon for other outsider progressive women and minorities trying to defeat entrenched Washington incumbents. **SNIP** Massachusetts' 7th...

    The Democratic makeover is in full swing. **SNIP** Those tensions could come to a head if Pelosi struggles to be elected speaker. Even if she wins, it could be difficult for her to preside over a more liberal caucus. James, of the Collective PAC, said that's exactly the idea. "The status quo to me doesn't mean getting rid of people who have been in office a long time," she said. "It means you can't have the same mentality, you can't have the same goals. You can't have the same playbook. You've got to switch it up."
  • More than 10K city employees stopped paying union dues

    More than 10,000 city workers stopped paying union dues By Rich Calder 1-2 minutes More than 10,000 city workers stopped paying their union dues after the landmark Supreme Court decision in June gave them the right to end the payments. City records show that there were 314,770 city workers paying union dues prior to the Janus v. AFSCME ruling on June 27 that found government workers can’t be forced to pay dues to unions that represent them in collective bargaining. By the first July pay period following the decision, the number dropped by 10,328 – or 3 percent – to...

    Actress Cynthia Nixon has been routinely described as trying to become the state’s first lesbian governor. But Nixon actually doesn't self-identify as a lesbian. She considers herself queer, campaign spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said. Queer - one of the Qs in the LGBTQ movement, along with questioning—encompasses people who don't necessarily feel they fall under any specific label. Queer for decades had been used as a derisive term to attack nonheterosexuals. But in recent years, the term has been reclaimed by some - especially younger people - in the LGBTQ community. Hitt declined to discuss the reasons why Nixon identifies as...

That is not just wrong and unethical and despicable, it is also illegal," Governor Cuomo said.

    As a native Illinoisan, I can appreciate the wildly corrupt nature of this story. New York Governor Mario Cuomo received a $25,000 donation from the law firm representing Harvey Weinstein just six days before he called off an investigation into the movie mogul's behavior. The explanation from the law firm for the donation could have been lifted from a Chicago alderman's playbook. Page Six: “Neither Mr. Boies, nor anyone from his firm, ever discussed Harvey Weinstein or Mr. Vance with Mr. Cuomo, or anyone from his office, at any time,” the spokesperson told online political publication Capital and Main. “Mr....

    A prominent law firm that formerly represented Harvey Weinstein handed over a $25,000 check to Gov. Andrew Cuomo‘s campaign six days before the governor called off a probe into the handling of sexual misconduct allegations against the disgraced movie mogul, public records show. The hefty contribution from Manhattan firm Boies Schiller & Flexner came on June 20, according to records on the state Board of Elections website. Less than a week later, Cuomo called for a six-month halt of state Attorney General Barbara Underwood’s investigation into Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance for deciding not to prosecute Weinstein for a 2015 groping...
