Cuomo: Weiner NYC mayoral win would be a 'shame'

Posted:

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says it would be a "shame" if Anthony Weiner was elected mayor of New York City.
    
Speaking to editors at the Syracuse Post-Standard newspaper Thursday, the governor, who also leads the state Democratic Party, weighed in on a Weiner candidacy for the first time.
    
Weiner is back on the political scene two years after a series of raunchy text messages ended his congressional career.
    
Asked how he'd react if Weiner won, Cuomo answered: "Shame on us."
    
On Wednesday, he pointedly stayed away from the topic. Asked to comment on Weiner's candidacy, he answered: "None. No reaction. None."
    
A spokeswoman for the Weiner campaign didn't immediately return a call and email seeking comment.
    
Weiner is among several Democrats trying to succeed Michael Bloomberg.
