Christine Quinn Slams Cynthia Nixon's Gubernatorial Campaign, Calls Her An "Unqualified Lesbian"

  • Quinn Cynthia Nixon isn’t a ‘qualified lesbian’ — I

"She isn't qualified to be the governor", Quinn said.

"But she's never run an organization", she continues.

Nixon didn't give too much detail about how she would fix the city's transport system, but did say it needed a "direct revenue stream" - we *presume* that means a special pot of money just for the subway. Instead, she was rather concerned about "the corruption in Albany. I'm not an Albany insider". "I want to be clear about that". He suggested that Cuomo was vulnerable four years ago in a way that he is not today, as he was battling prominent unions at the time and was criticized by Teachout supporters for not opposing hydraulic fracturing more vehemently.

"I'm surprised by this race".

In Cuomo's first public remarks since Nixon, an education activist, declared she would challenge him for the Democratic Party's nomination, Cuomo said in Manhattan, "We're in a democracy, anybody can run, anybody can say whatever they want to say".




Winsome Pendergrass, a Flatbush resident who learned of the event from New York Communities for Change, said she wasn't concerned about Nixon not having held a political position.

"She will listen to us more than the men do and I think she's approachable".

Nixon was born and raised in NY and, as her campaign ad makes clear, she is a public school graduate and parent there.

Her campaign sets up a battle for the September 13 primary between a celebrity on the left of the Democratic Party and a moderate governor who is often mentioned as a possible presidential hopeful in 2020. "4/4." People then commented on Christine's clarification on Twitter. Being an actress and celebrity doesn't make you qualified for public office. "Another candidate has stepped forward, and she clearly has the resources and infrastructure that are needed to secure a place on the ballot and win". One person added, "I read Sean Maloney's press release and agree". She says the eight years of Cuomo's two terms in office is "an exercise in living with disappointment, dysfunction and dishonesty", and she called Cuomo a "fake corporate Democrat", who she says accepted $87,000 from the conservative Koch brothers.

"New York State itself is the single most unequal state in the country", she said, according to the New York Times. Like Lamont, she'll probably have the help of some liberal outside groups who have been angry at Cuomo for any number of reasons, including at one time, enabling a working Republican majority in the state senate. I worked alongside her in the marriage fight, and I believe she was incredibly eloquent and incredibly effective.
