Chris Cuomo Headed to CNN

The political-media family dynasty expands.

Chris Cuomo, brother of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, has announced he is leaving ABC for a bigger gig at CNN.

I remember the first time I was introduced to the Cuomo name. It was because of the father, Mario Cuomo, who was then running for mayor of NYC against Ed Koch. Someone in a car was driving up and down the predominantly gay Greenwich Village section of the city, with a passenger in the car who had a loudspeaker pointed out the window and barking, "Vote Cuomo, not the homo."

Why would anybody pro-Cuomo be shouting this in Greenwich Village? I have always suspected it was a Koch campaign dirty trick. Koch won the primary election against Cuomo, a runoff against Cuomo and (Cuomo still running) the general election.
