Actually, former NYC City Council Speaker Christine Quinn’s full comment is not objectionable, as she notes that TV actress Cynthia Nixon had supported Quinn’s Democrat primary opponent and the eventual winner, Bill de Blasio, over Quinn in the 2013 mayoral race:
Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of New York City. Now she wants 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.
Nixon’s beliefs include giving the teachers’ unions everything they demand, and then some. And while she’s fervently pro-choice on abortion, she’s fiercely against school choice:
“[Cuomo] also wants to increase the number of privately-run charter schools in New York City by more than 50 percent,” Nixon wrote. “And he has been a loud proponent of private school tax credits, essentially a backdoor voucher system.”
I’m no fan of Cuomo, but putting students before educrats sounds good to me.
