Tidings of the Season. Amid the holiday bustle Cuomo and his cronies are launching a counter attack. Believing that the best offense is a defense, they are lashing out at perceived enemies. Not content to fade into the background, the former Governor makes daily headlines as he plots his comeback. He steadfastly denies any wrongdoing. His spokesmen besmirch adversaries and their investigations and reports. His lawyers twist the legal system to their ends. They attack his accusers and place much of the blame on Albany Politics. Tidings of the Season. Cuomo and his henchmen make a mockery of holiday cheer.
