"If Washington is a swamp, Albany is a cesspool," Nixon said "Andrew Cuomo promised to clean up Albany but instead he and his cronies have cleaned up for themselves. There is a reason that people close to Andrew Cuomo keep winding up under indictment for corruption."

"I think that everybody understands the corruption in Albany has been really bad for decades and I think under the Cuomo administration he's brought it to a new high or a new low, however you want to think about that," she said. "And I think it's time for an outsider. I am not an Albany insider."

CJA's March 22, 2018 e-mail to Zephyr Teachout --
Candidate Nixon's Campaign Treasurer
"'The Anti-Corruption Principle' -- WINNING for Cynthia Nixon--
& for ALL the People of the State of New York"

"..New York’s corrupt and posturing incumbent public officers – from Governor Cuomo, on down – must be taken out – and this can be accomplished, EASILY & WITHOUT MONEY by a press conference featuring constitutional scholars and legal experts, such as yourself, 'blowing the whistle' about the open-and-shut, prima facie EVIDENCE presented by the verified pleadings and record of CJA’s citizen-taxpayer actions and by the FULLY-DOCUMENTED corruption & ethics complaints that criminal and disciplinary authorities have been 'sitting on', since 2013:  http://www.judgewatch.org/web-pages/elections/2018/cuomo.htm – mandating their indictment and guaranteeing their convictions, including under the vaunted 'Public Trust Act': Penal Law 496 ('corrupting the government'): http://www.judgewatch.org/web-pages/searching-nys/2018-legislature/enforcing-public-trust-act.htm.   

Please forward this e-mail to Cynthia, with whom I would be most grateful to speak, directly – consistent with what she has promised about 'a people-powered, grass-roots, from the bottom-up campaign'.

More to follow."
