Andrew Cuomo’s best efforts to knock his Democratic primary challenger, Zephyr Teachout, from the ballot have failed. Cuomo is still the overwhelming favorite but for one thing: primary turnout, which is generally abysmal in New York primaries. Even if Cuomo loses the primaries, the Working Families Party has endorsed him (a decision looking stupider by the minute), so he’ll appear on that ballot line and could still win the race for governor this Fall. Nevertheless, I’ll be voting for Teachout on September 9th, for two reasons: she’s qualified, and fuck Andrew Cuomo. Let me elaborate on that: fuck Cuomo, fuck his corruption, and fuck his middle-of-the-road corporatism in a state where he could be a hell of a lot more liberal.
