The New York Times makes its choice in next month's Democratic primary for governor, and it's no one.
In an editorial running Wednesday, the Times says it will not back Governor Andrew Cuomo because he failed to carry out his number one campaign promise, which was to clean up corruption in Albany.
The paper says the governor had some important victories like legalizing same-sex marriage, but dropped the ball on ethics reform.
It rips him for blocking his special corruption commission, and for not working harder to change the state's campaign finance system.
The Times says, "The state government remains as subservient to big money as ever, and Mr. Cuomo resisted and even shut down opportunities to fix it."
While the paper admits Cuomo is likely to win the primary, it suggests voters may decide to show their disappointment with him by casting ballots for his challenger, Fordham law professor Zephyr Teachout.
