Cuomo Jeered At Fundraiser For Breakaway Democrat Bloc

April 13, 2018 - 9:35 am

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo thought he had a deal with the breakaway group of state senate democrats -- they're supposed to go back to voting with the main bloc, thereby depriving republicans control of the senate, but apparently not everyone is on board.

A crowd at a fundraiser in Fort Tyron Park jeered the governor with shouts of 'shame' and 'no fake democrats' when he showed up unannounced at a fundraiser for the breakaway group.

Cynthia Nixon -- who is running against Cuomo in the primary -- piled on saying the video of the episode proves Cuomo can't quit republicans.

Cuomo's office said the fundraiser was for democratic unity, and that's why he was there.
