A "Cuomo associate" tells The Daily Beast that Democrats in the New York State Senate shouldn't be surprised that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been so unhelpful.
"The [New York state] Senate Democrats are crooks. Crooks, plain and simple.”
Last week, a small group of Democrats in the state Senate broke and decided to caucus with Republicans, giving the GOP defacto control over the state Senate.
It's not clear whether Cuomo had any role in it, but he's certainly seen as tacitly approving of the move -- something that's enraged liberal activists.
