Do you want to know how Carl Paladino is only six points behind Andrew Cuomo in the race for New York governor? Take a look at this video and then read the excerpt from CBS News below it.
CBS News: But for all his actions as the state’s chief law enforcement officer, Cuomo did have a little problem with telling the truth about his election box support for Mayor Bloomberg.
“Have I voted for the mayor? Yes,” Cuomo said.
Actually, he didn’t. The Cuomo campaign had to issue a clarification, saying he was only registered to vote in New York City in 2005 when he endorsed Democrat Fernando Ferrer.
This is exactly what voters have grown so sick and tired of. Of course Cuomo will give the classic “misspoke” response, but come on. How is it that you and I can remember every candidate we voted for since turning 18, and these so called “great leaders of our time” cannot even recall who they voted for mayor in 2005?
The truth is Cuomo was probably did not have the cojones to say he did not vote for Bloomberg with the man standing just two feet away. If Cuomo doesn't have the balls to face a mildly embarrassing moment, how on earth will this man stand up to Alabany if elected?
The Paladino campaign did not waste a hot second to capitalize on this:
The Paladino team used the faux pas to taunt Cuomo about not yet agreeing to debates.
Paladino spokesman Caputo said “Perhaps that’s why Andrew is afraid to debate. He misspeaks so much he fears facing the voters.”
If Cuomo keeps sticking his foot in his mouth like this, the Tea Party will be planting a flag in the New York governor’s office.
