Cynthia for New York released the following statement regarding Andrew Cuomo’s sham grassroots small dollar fundraising operation.
“The pathetic, transparent efforts by the Governor’s staff (and their roommates) to increase his number of small dollar contributions shows just how little public enthusiasm there is for Andrew Cuomo,” said Cynthia for New York spokeswoman Lauren Hitt. “Try as he might, there is no hiding that Cuomo is the candidate of Wall Street and the Winklevii.”
