    Gov. Cuomo Urges U.S. Army to Rename Confederate Streets in Brooklyn in Wake of Charlottesville ViolenceGov. Cuomo on Wednesday called on the U.S. Army to reconsider its recent decision not to rename two streets in Brooklyn honoring Civil War Confederate generals. “Renaming these streets will send a clear message that in New York, we stand against intolerance and racism, whether it be insidious and hidden or obvious and intentional,” Cuomo wrote in a letter sent to acting Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy. The Army on Aug. 7 denied requests from New York congressional members to change the names of Stonewall Jackson...

    ALBANY — Actress Cynthia Nixon, who played Miranda on “Sex and the City,” may want a new role as Ms. Big. Nixon is said to be one of several Democrats in New York mulling a potential Democratic primary challenge to Gov. Cuomo in 2018. “She’d be a fantastic candidate,” said Billy Easton, executive director of the teachers union-supported Alliance for Quality Education. Easton has worked with Nixon on state education issues. Nixon, whose potential run was first reported by the Wall Street Journal on Friday, has frequently been an activist on state and city issues, particularly pertaining to public education.

    The governor of New York suddenly looks like the kind of take-no-prisoners pol his party needs. With one catch. NEW YORK — The scene is unfolding in the shabby headquarters of the Hotel Trades Council just off Times Square in the late spring of 2017, but it’s not hard to imagine the speech somewhere in the Rust Belt in 2020, with a Democratic nominee trying to reclaim the Upper Midwest for his party. “The truth is the middle class is under attack. The working families are under attack,” Andrew Cuomo bellows, his tough-guy accent coming in a little thick. “Middle-class...

    Co-host of CNN’s “New Day” Chris Cuomo deleted a tweet Wednesday in which he proposed revealing the identity of the Reddit user who posted the CNN wrestling video of President Donald Trump. One Twitter user screen shot Cuomo’s tweet and criticized the co-host for trying to intimidate a teenager in order to suppress negative coverage of his home network. Why did @ChrisCuomo delete this tweet? Possibly because they found out it was 15 year old kid they are trying to extort. #CNNBlackmail — Mark M. (@mmontuori) July 5, 2017

    CNN's Chris Cuomo exploded on Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) after he said the debate around the plan to repeal and replace Obamacare is "completely distorted using incorrect information." "I know you're not suggesting that I'm using misleading information, right? You let me know what I'm saying that's inaccurate. This whole 'fake' thing needs to end, and it needs to end right now. You tell me what I'm getting wrong, or we'll deal with the number as the CBO puts them out," Cuomo charged on Wednesday's broadcast of CNN's New Day.

    Just as NYC Pride festivities got underway, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo had some timely news on Sunday: The artist Anthony Goicolea had been chosen to design the first official monument to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people commissioned by the State of New York. On June 26, 2016, after the attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., that left 49 people dead, Governor Cuomo formed the LGBT Memorial Commission to honor the fight for equal rights and remember victims of hate, intolerance and violence. A request for designs for the new memorial went out in October. It is to...

    'Start With Me': NY Gov. Cuomo Dares Trump to Deport Him Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) told a crowd in New York City that if the Trump administration wants to "deport immigrants" that they should start with him. Cuomo, whose grandfather Andrea immigrated from Italy, said that unless people belonged to the Onondaga, Mohawk and other Upstate New York tribes, "we are all immigrants." Cuomo, who like Trump is from Queens, N.Y., said the White House forgot the Emma Lazarus poem engraved on the Statue of Liberty.

    Judith Clark, the getaway driver in a fatal armored car robbery in 1981, has been denied parole, despite support from Governor Andrew Cuomo for her release. Four months ago, Cuomo sparked controversy after he commuted Clark's life sentence, allowing the former revolutionary to seek early release for her role in the botched robbery of a Brinks truck in Rockland County. After the ruling, he released a statement saying Clark deserved the opportunity to make her case and he respects the parole board's decision. Clark has served more than 35 years of a 75-years-to-life sentence for her role in the shooting,...

    Immediately following Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat against Donald Trump in November, many in the Democratic Party suggested the DNC failed because it chose a well-connected, corrupt, establishment candidate in an election cycle that heavily favored political outsiders. Consequently, many in the Democratic Party called on DNC leaders to find and promote candidates that could better represent middle-class working Americans. However, the early front-runner in the 2020 race to be Clinton’s successor, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), seems to fit the establishment mold much closer than the kind of candidate you would expect a party to pick that’s looking to...

    ALBANY — Thanks to the new state budget, electronic cigarette users can puff away without the tax man taking a drag. Despite an alarming surge in e-cigarette use by high school students, state lawmakers — at the urging of the GOP-controlled Senate — rejected Gov. Cuomo’s plan to tax the liquid used in the devices and tighten restrictions on their use, advocates charged Monday. Cuomo’s proposals were mysteriously left out of the budget approved by the Senate and Assembly over the weekend. “The Senate Republicans picked big tobacco over public health,” said Bill Sherman, vice president for government relations at...

    The award for the worst public policy idea of the year goes to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo presides over a state with a rich diversity of educational institutions. But he also presides over a state, like all states, where many students don’t complete college and where many are unprepared for the information economy. For example, fewer than half of the African-American and Hispanic students in New York public colleges graduate within six years. Cuomo could have done many things to improve New York’s higher ed system. He could have poured all available money into the Tuition Assistance Program,...
