Letter to the Editor
Nixon Not the One
Jun 25, 2018

"If Washington is a swamp, then Albany under Andrew Cuomo is a cesspool," says Democratic primary opponent Cynthia Nixon.

No argument there. But Nixon is hypocritical for ignoring the pay-to-play cesspool of her friend, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Just as both de Blasio and Nixon call themselves progressives while he gives union-represented city workers only real-money pay cuts and she complains that transit workers are overpaid. Just as she criticizes Cuomo for underfunding education while ignoring de Blasio's neglect of New York City schools.

Let me make this perfectly clear. Nixon is a hypocrite. Make no mistake about that.

When Democrats and Republicans both offer terrible candidates, I refuse to limit my choices to them. I will vote for the same gubernatorial candidate I chose in the 2010 and 2014 elections, the Green Party's Howie Hawkins.
