  • Governor Cuomo signs legislation to remove guns from domestic abusers

Democratic challenger Cynthia Nixon on Friday made her 2017 tax returns available for public viewing, while Republican Marc Molinaro did so on Thursday.

Mr. Cuomo continued to criticize Ms. Nixon, suggesting that "one year is not enough" and preaching about the virtues of transparency.

The returns of Nixon, who is chasing Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo from the political left, depict the financial activities of a successful businesswoman with an acting company, founded in 1999 and which she calls Fickle Mermaid Corp., along with rental income from two downstate apartments and a foundation that made $45,000 in donations past year to an array of causes.

The couple netted more than $125,000 in capital gains and were paid almost $33,000 in dividends from investments.

"The old days you guys would never tolerate the non-release of taxes, right?" Reporters were also prohibited from taking photos.

Hours before Molinaro released his 2017 filings, Cuomo's campaign said the Republican candidate, who has held public office since he was a teenager, should release the past 10 years of his tax returns.


Earlier in the week, Mr. Cuomo's campaign had seized on a report in Politico that said a foundation started by Ms. Nixon and Ms. Marinoni had given to several groups in past years that have now endorsed her for governor.

That amount included $15,000 for the Public Policy and Education Fund, the not-for-profit research and public education affiliate of Citizen Action of NY, which endorsed Nixon. Mr. Cuomo gave $11,000, all to a homelessness group, HELP USA, that he founded.

"New Yorkers have watched Andrew Cuomo cater to billionaires and corporations in return for huge donations, and then embarrass the nation by having his top aides go on multiple trials for political corruption", said Nixon senior strategist Rebecca Katz. The Andrew Cuomo fossil fuel power plant would provide heat and cooling to the State Capitol and the Empire State Plaza.

That swipe refers to repeated assertions from the governor - who was paid a salary of $173,000 and has a blind trust - that he is "a middle-class guy".

"The releasing of tax information is vital because then you understand how the person lives, how the person finances their lifestyle", Cuomo said.
