Cuomo's New TV Ad Targets Ethics

Actions speak louder than words, Mr. Cuomo.

Democratic candidate for governor Andrew Cuomo's latest statewide television ad targets what it calls disgraceful and dysfunctional Albany.

The ad scheduled to begin running Thursday seeks support for his proposed 20-point plan to improve ethical behavior in state government. He wants a ban on pay-to-play practices in which lobbyists are among the biggest campaign contributors.

Republican candidates Rick Lazio and Carl Paladino have already made ethics a key element of their campaigns. They say Cuomo as the leader of the Democratic Party and the attorney general should have already made his fellow Democrats behave more ethically.

Lazio criticized Cuomo for attending the fundraiser Wednesday night for Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel, who faces House ethics charges.
