Liberal Irony: Gov. Cuomo Says Weiner As Mayor Would Be Shameful

anthony-weiner-6-6-11-3Gov. Cuomo says it would be shameful if Anthony Weiner is elected mayor.

Cuomo, during an appearance before the Syracuse Post-Standard’s editoral board Wednesday, stayed neutral when asked his thoughts on Weiner entering the race.

Cuomo, a Democrat, has said he has no plans to get involved in the mayor’s race.

He gave a less definitive answer hours before he spoke to the Syracuse paper when asked by reporters in Buffalo for his reaction to Weiner’s mayoral bid.

The last thing Cuomo probably wants to discuss is the race of a candidate who resigned his congressional seat amid a sexting scandal.
