Dear Andrew Please note in all previous correspondense that I have addessed you as Mr. AttorneyGeneral with the appropriate respect for the office that you hold. However, today Iaddress you as the man the Democrats- the folks who gave us Spitzer, Paterson andHevesi - have nominated for Governorof New York. It has been six days since I publically challenged you to a series of debates. You havenot responded publically and have declined to comment, but news from reporters isthat you insist on including Conservative nominee Rick Lazio. So in other words youwant to cut out the Black candidate and the Woman candidate and I imagine you don'twant the Green Party candidate their too. And the pro-tax Working Families Party, of course you are their nominee. I guess what I find most offensive, other than the arrogance towards the public byyour lack of a public answer, is the idea that this is somehow
your 
decision as you havesome sense of entitlement based on being the son of Mario Cuomo, a governor who leftour state economy in a wreck. I know. I remember trying to make a living in UpstateNew York while your father was governor. I think former Govenor George Pataki set the correct precedent on this and debatedall nine of his legal opponents who had a place on the ballot because he believedthe people had the right to hear each candidate. Pataki put his own political bestinterests aside for the public good. It's difficult to understand why you, a polishedveteran campaigner, scion of a political dynasty and king-designate, would fear a simplebusinessman from Buffalo, who candidly has never been in a debate in his life - exceptmaybe in a bar. Frankly, i dont think you have the
cojones 
to face me and the other candidates in aopen debate. I dont think you have the
cojones 
to answer direct questions regardingthe mistakes you made at HUD in pushing a sub-prime mortgage scheme that costtaxpayers $2.4 trillion dollars and cost most New Yorkers the value of their 401-Ks.I dont think you have the
cojones 
to answer questions about why you embracedethically-challenged Charlie Rangel while pledging to clean up corruption. I don't think you haved the
cojones 
to defend why some were prosecuted in the Hevesi Pensionscandal while others - including many of your key supporters - were not. So Andrew, for the first time in your life be a man. Don't hide behind daddy's coattailseven though he pulled strings to advance your career every step of your way. Come out
