They posted the same types of flyers when Cuomo ran against Ed Koch or NYC Mayor in 1977. The working assumption remains that Andrew Cuomo was the architect of this smear. Mario Cuomo always claimed he had no idea where the flyers came from, but Koch said he did nothing to stop them. I have no axe to grind with Mario Cuomo, and my overall impression of him is very positive. But I always think it's important to remember the bad with the good, to have an honest appreciation of a person's character on balance, rather than a false assumption of perfection.
