Vote for Cuomo, not the homo

Posted by Jeff Rosen on Tue Mar 2 16:27:39 2021

"Former Mayor Ed Koch took to his grave the belief that Andrew Cuomo was behind the scurrilous posters that appeared in Queens during the 1977 mayoral race between Koch and Mario Cuomo. “Vote for Cuomo, not the homo,” the posters said in a gay-baiting bid just days before voters went to the polls.
That wasn’t all. In “I, Koch,” a 1985 unauthorized biography of Koch, my co-authors and I reported that Mario Cuomo’s campaign “hired a private detective to try to find out who Koch’s ‘boyfriend’ was and attempted to plant stories with the press that Koch was gay.”
Cuomo’s campaign also offered money to a Catholic group in Greenwich Village if it would “publish a newsletter suggesting that Koch was gay.” The group refused."
