The Feds are looking a fundraising for the New York City’s mayoral campaign….
Eric Adams has not been implicated…
If he was to be charged?
A new poll has former NY Governor Cuomo as in the lead to get elected to take over the job…
Cuomo who quit his job over sexual harassment claims IS inching to get back into politics in a executive spot…
And if Adams were to leave office prematurely, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo — who stepped down in 2021 amid a series of sexual harassment allegations — would lead the pack of potential successors, according to a survey conducted by the political consulting firm Slingshot Strategies and shared with POLITICO.
As POLITICO first reported, Cuomo is mulling a run for mayor as he eyes a political comeback.
In a hypothetical, nonpartisan special election, Cuomo would receive 22 percent of the vote, with city Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, a progressive, capturing 15 percent of the 600 registered city voters surveyed this month. Kathryn Garcia, who nearly won the mayoralty in 2021 and now works for Gov. Kathy Hochul, ranked third with 12 percent in Slingshot’s poll. (Cuomo, who hails from a political family, has by far the highest name recognition of the group.)
A plurality of voters — 35 percent — were undecided when presented with 12 candidates. Former GOP mayoral nominee Curtis Sliwa, who plans to run again, garnered 9 percent as the only Republican in the Slingshot matchup.
For now, these scenarios are all a bit of fan fiction: Adams has vigorously defended himself and his campaign and is raising money for a 2025 reelection bid…..
