Gov. Cuomo Turns to eBay for a Used Car

Here's a used car salesman most everyone in Albany can feel sorry for.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has hammered out negotiations with legislators, unions, and most recently with the Buffalo Bills, just put an upstate used car dealer through his paces for a 1996 Ford Bronco. The car advertised on eBay as being in mint condition is for the governor's daughter who just earned her driver's license.

The Daily Freeman in Kingston reports Cuomo called, texted and negotiated with Sawyer Motors owner Bob Siracusano for days over the vehicle estimated to be valued at about $8,745.

Cuomo, a collector of vintage muscle cars including a Corvette, asked about the tires and other aspects of the vehicle.

Siracusano said he "would be sitting home at night and the governor would text me, 'What about the tires? What about this? What about that? Can we do this? Can we do that?'" 

Cuomo's next negotiation is with the Legislature over a budget worth about $135 billion.
