GOP Candidate for NY Gov Calls for Mosque Inquiry

Tuesday, 20 Jul 2010 06:45 PM


The Republican candidate for governor of New York says his Democrat opponent, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, is playing to his liberal voter base by refusing to open an inquiry into plans to build a mosque near ground zero.

Rick Lazio has called Cuomo an incompetent attorney general and says he has not received a response from Cuomo's office to his July 7 written request for an inquiry into a Muslim charity that plans to build a community center and mosque in lower Manhattan.

No funds have yet been raised for the proposal to replace a building damaged on Sept. 11, 2001.

Cuomo says that anyone who has evidence of wrongdoing should send it to the office and it will be reviewed.

Lazio accuses Cuomo of siding with a liberal view after years of making headlines by accusing big business of wrongdoing.
