New York Magazine has a critical look at Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo's campaign—basically, how Cuomo isn't doing much campaigning at all and letting Republican candidate Carl Paladino's gaffes do all the work for him. And there's an interesting explanation on how the Daily News got that quote from Cuomo—after being mocked by Paladino, he asked his staff, "If a guy says you have no cojones, how do you punch him back, call him an a--hole?" It turns out one of Cuomo's aides called a Daily News reporter.
New York reports, "The rare inside look at the tightly controlled Cuomo campaign was a major score for the Daily News, which splashed the story across its front page. The irony is in how the campaign’s military-level secrecy was punctured: During the meeting, a Cuomo aide accidentally dialed reporter Ken Lovett on his cell phone and left the line open." Classic.
