Cynthia Nixon Bashed as 'Unqualified Lesbian' By Former NYC Mayoral Candidate

"Well if Donald Trump is in there I don't see why she can't go", said Pendergrass.

However, for Quinn, the Sex and the City actress is not the person for the job due to her lack of qualifications. To Christine's barbs of her being an unqualified lesbian, Cynthia said that the race is not about "her being a lesbian and my being a lesbian".

The event in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn came one day after the actress declared she was taking on two-time Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo, the scion of a political dynasty in the Empire State.

To be clear, Cynthia Nixon's identity has no bearing on her candidacy and it was not my intention to suggest it did.

Before Nixon made her long-rumored announcement, Dershowitz wrote, "Cynthia Nixon may run for Gov of NY".

Davis also tweeted that she has already donated to Nixon's campaign and urged her followers to do the same.

Nixon starred in the HBO television series from 1998 to 2004 about four women in New York City, playing the part of attorney Miranda Hobbes. "But if Washington is a swamp, Albany is a cesspool", she said, making a reference to the governor's "right-hand man", who was convicted of corruption last week.

In a report from New York Times in 2013, Nixon explained why she chose to publicly support Quinn's rival De Blasio in the mayoral race. Now, she has made the gulf between New York's rich and poor a core message of her campaign for public office.

Nixon was quick to brush off Quinn's criticisms, telling The Post that "her being a lesbian and my being a lesbian" isn't important. "But... being an actress and celebrity doesn't make you qualified for public office". I too want to scream every time I ride the MTA. But right now, I'm stunned that so many of my fellow Democrats, people who have been so appalled at the rise of an inexperienced celebrity to political office, are throwing their support behind a candidate because she's honest and appealing and is not the guy currently in office.

"I can't think of a worse time to pick some holier than thou contest with a guy who has a great progressive record".

The answer is yes: She has a chance to make a strong showing (certainly better than what Siena's poll showed) and there's even a small chance of victory. "She isn't qualified to be the governor", Quinn said. It said the governor was a "centrist and Albany insider", mentioning the state capital, and referred to the legal troubles of a number of his aides. I suppose so, since she's never held elected office before. I worked alongside her in the marriage fight, and I believe she was incredibly eloquent and incredibly effective.
