NEW YORK, New York: On the exact same day he was set to announce that he had received the ringing endorsement of Michael Bloomberg, the notoriously independent Mayor of New York City, a new poll conducted by Quinnipiac University found conservative Republican nominee Carl Paladino within striking distance of favored front-runner Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic State Attorney General. More embarrassing for Cuomo, however, was the revelation that in spite of his insistence that he had voted for the mayor, evidence shows he in fact endorsed Bronx Borough President Fernando Ferrer, a Democratic candidate in the 2001 mayoral election. A spokesman for his campaign argues that "he was only registered to vote in New York City in 2005 when he endorsed Democrat Fernando Ferrer."[1]
