NY Gov. Cuomo Remains Ahead of Actress Cynthia Nixon in Poll

Nixon reported a federally adjusted gross income of $619,799 for 2017, according to a review of her voluminous tax returns made available to reporters Friday in Albany.

"My advice, personal advice, is if you have something to hide, this is the wrong business to get into", Mr. Cuomo said on Friday, in remarks to reporters in Lower Manhattan.

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 previous year to an array of causes.

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. They also reported a net loss of $85,260 from rental properties they own, though one of those properties sold previous year for a profit of $185,000.

Cuomo released his taxes in mid-April.

A police spokesman told ABC15 that he believed it was the first collision involving a Waymo vehicle in Chandler this year. That Waymo employee suffered minor injuries due to the impact, but that reportedly is the extent of injuries today.

"Daily Kos is thrilled to support Cynthia Nixon as she takes on New York's greatest obstacle to progressive policies and good government", David Nir, the political director for Daily Kos, said in a statement.

The foundation's 2017 return shows that it gave money to disparate groups - such as those fighting cystic fibrosis, doing nonprofit theater and the Girl Scouts - including $15,000 to the Public Policy and Education Fund, which is an affiliate of Citizen Action of NY. Molinaro released his tax return on Thursday. That group has endorsed Ms. Nixon. The corporation was established to oversee Nixon's acting career, according to State of Politics. He also donated $11,000 to HELP USA, a charity he founded years ago to fight homelessness. Mr. Cuomo's aides have said the governor is referring to his upbringing in Queens before his father, Mario M. Cuomo, became a three-term governor.

"I paid all my taxes", Molinaro said.
