Cuomo Ally Calls Cynthia Nixon an ‘Unqualified Lesbian’

A prominent supporter of Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) is going on offense early against Cuomo’s Democratic primary challenger, “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon, according to The New York Post.

Christine Quinn, the former speaker of the New York City Council and frequent CNN commentator, described Nixon as an “unqualified lesbian” on Tuesday. Quinn is openly gay.

The former city council speaker attacked Nixon for her support of Bill de Blasio in the 2013 mayoral race when Quinn ran against the now-mayor. Clearly stung by that snub, she went in on Nixon’s candidacy.

“Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of New York City. Now she wants to be an unqualified lesbian to be the governor of New York,” Quinn told the Post.

Responding to the comments, Nixon dismissed the aspect of her sexuality, saying that New York needed an “outsider” to fix the mess it’s in.

The Democratic challenger to Cuomo held her first official event on Tuesday, and Nixon almost missed the rally due to the dismal subway system that has atrophied under Cuomo’s watch.
