Teachout And Astorino To Make Joint Appearance To Hammer Cuomo On His Lack Of Ethics

Nick Reisman at State of Politics:
Astorino, meanwhile, due to make a joint appearance with Zephyr Teachout this morning at the Tweed Courthouse — an eyebrow raising event that could garner both campaigns more attention during a relatively slow summer.

Teachout, a Fordham law professor, is challenging Cuomo on the Democratic primary ballot (Her petitions are being challenged by the governor’s re-election campaign).
The joint appearance comes as both Astorino and Teachout try to raise their name recognition with voters and gain the attention of Cuomo.

Ken Lovett in a tweet:

Both Teachout and Astorino have their work cut out for them.

Cuomo has a big lead on Astorino in the latest Siena poll and Astorino isn't registering much with voters yet.

Meanwhile Teachout has to survive a challenge to her ballot petitions and then start to get some traction with liberals and progressives angry at Cuomo for his corporate-friendly policies.

Still, it's good to see Teachout and Astorino join forces today to hammer Cuomo on his lack of ethics.

If there's any opening these two have to go at Cuomo, it's over ethics and corruption.

That is, unless Preet Bharara decides to go at him first:


  1. I like this news. Let's get people enlightened about the nefarious Cuomo. And, let's reel in his major lead in the upcoming primary and elections to make this a horse race.

  2. Astorino and Teachout would make a great team!

  3. I don't like this news. Unless you want fracking in New York State, the continuation of Indian Point and its hazardous waste dumping and impossible evacuation plan, Astorino is not your man.
    Jump from the frying pan into the fire. NO on AstoriNO.

  4. No way Astorino gets my vote, but it does serve Cuomo getting knocked around, having to answer for his Common Core/Evaluation Crap and drawing Teachout, Wu, Hawkins, and Jones closer.
