Cuomo not the homo - revisted
Last week in response to an entry of mine about Andrew Cuomo, someone wrote:
AGAIN this 1977 thing comes up. Why?
THINK FOR A MINUTE: Not one person in this whole wide world has ever kept a copy of any of those so said posters. How come? Wouldn't they be collector's items? And also different people who recollect seeing them have diff descriptions . It's another URBAN POLITICAL LEGEND.
I direct all to this Daily News column -
"Alas, there is still one big sore spot, and Cuomo raised it yesterday: signs that appeared on Queens lampposts in 1977, saying "Vote for Cuomo, not the homo." The issue threatened to derail Koch, who denied on TV he was gay. Koch believed the Cuomo camp was behind the signs, while Cuomo has always denied it. He said yesterday he thinks he knows who did it, but that there is no point in identifying the person now."
Still think it's an urban legend?
