Sex and the City Star --
Wait, Let Me Rephrase--
Sex and City Actress Announces Bid to Challenge Corrupt NY Governor Andrew Cuomo
Liberal CNN Contributor Calls Her an "Unqualified Lesbian"

She played the role of The One You Weren't Interested in Seeing Naked on Sex & the City. Now she's seeking an even bigger role -- The One You're Not Interested in Seeing in the Governor's Mansion.

Then again, Andrew Cuomo is a crook, and, given that he's the brother of Televised Retard Chris Cuomo, most likely cognitively challenged himself.


CNN's Political Action Squad went quickly into protect-the-Democrat-incumbent mode.

Former Democratic New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn on Tuesday said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's (D.) Democratic challenger is a "unqualified lesbian."

...

"I'm surprised by this race. It's a flight of fancy on her part," Quinn said of Nixon's campaign announcement.

"Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of New York City," Quinn said [referring to herself and her own terrible, incompetent campaign]. "Now she wants to be an unqualified lesbian to be the governor of New York. You have to be qualified and have experience. She isn't qualified to be the governor."

Christine Quinn explained on twitter that when she made an issue of Cynthia Nixon's sexuality, she was in no way attempting to make an issue of Cynthia Nixon's sexuality:

To be clear, Cynthia Nixon's identity has no bearing on her candidacy and it was not my intention to suggest it did.

By branding her "lesbian" on CNN, I certainly wasn't trying to get the word out that she was a lesbian.

I want to be clear about that. I would never, EVER, criticize someone because of their identity. 1/4

I've experienced it time and time again, and would never support it or condone it. As a lesbian who ran one of the most high profile races in the country, i know what that's like. And I know it's imperative that we encourage more members of our community to run for office. 2/4

Cynthia Nixon aggressively opposed my candidacy in New York despite my qualifications for the office and despite my strong progressive credentials. I was attempting to make a comparison between the two of us. 3/4

The real point I am trying to make is that qualifications matter and records matter. I do not believe she has the qualifications or the record. 4/4

Well at least we know Christina Quinn doesn't hold a grudge or anything.

Oh wait, per Wikipedia, perhaps she does:

Under New York City law, the City Council Speaker has authority over the yearly City Council funds, worth almost $400 million (in 2012), to distribute among 51 members.[16] The discretionary funding system sometimes referred to as the "slush fund" has been criticized in recent years, with some councilmembers alleging Quinn to have cut funding to their districts as a form of political retaliation. Quinn has repeatedly denied these allegations.[16]

At least, though, she was a leader with a sense of command whose underlings would do as she said.

Oh wait, per Wikipedia, she wasn't that either, by her own admission/alibi:

In April 2008, the New York Post revealed[17] that Quinn's office had appropriated millions of dollars to organizations that do not exist, and that the money was then secretly routed to organizations favored by individual council members.

In a news conference that followed Quinn said, "I had no knowledge of it; I did not know this was the practice".

Quinn said that she found out about it only a few months earlier, alerted authorities, and ordered staffers to stop the practice, but they did not listen.[18]

Quinn hired a criminal defense lawyer to represent her in the federal and city investigations.[19]

Records showed that nearly 25 percent of those "secret slush" funds went to organizations in Quinn's district, and that two of the biggest recipients of the funds had contributed to Quinn's 2009 mayoral run.[20] In September 2011, one of the city council's lawyers reported that the federal "investigation has been closed without taking up any action," but only after two councilmen were indicted at the cost of $100,000 to the City.[21]

Oh by the way: she wasn't qualified herself either. Claiming that being a councilman that mostly takes symbolic votes on whether or not to declare Israel a terror state or not makes you qualified to run a huge bureaucracy is like claiming that the treasurer of the student council is qualified to be comptroller of a school district.

No one was actually qualified in that race -- for some time, Anthony Weiner was actually considered the least-bad of the terrible options, and this was after his second, I believe, exposure as a compulsive sexter.

I think it was his third exposure that finally doomed him.
