Cuomo answers the Silver question

Andrew Cuomo works hardat not letting the “anger and frustration” directed at Albany get personal, especially when he’s asked about one enduring political figure in the capital, fellow Democrat Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

Liz Benjamin: "He’s the longest legislative leader in Albany…If you say Albany is disgusting, has it not been his [Sheldon Silver’s] fault in some way?"

Andrew Cuomo: "It has been the fault of the legislative leaders. It has been the fault of the governors. It has been the fault of the lobbyists. It’s been the fault of the special interest corporations that dominate the process."
