Cuomo Aide Quietly Fighting on Boss’s Behalf


Joseph Percoco, an aide to Andrew Cuomo, has been quietly telling upstate and labor leaders to give Caroline Kennedy a “cold reception.” Though Cuomo has said he was staying out of the “race” to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate, Percoco’s been telling people things like ‘”I can’t say he wants you to tell people he wants it, but you should, wink-wink, nudge-nudge, know that he kind of wants it.” Ugh, high school Albany.
