New York Rivalry Escalates

New York Times: "Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has asked people if they think Eric T. Schneiderman, the attorney general of New York State, wears eyeliner. Mr. Schneiderman has told people that he believes Mr. Cuomo's administration is Machiavellian and is out to undermine him."

"A little backbiting by the officials and their aides, who occupy power suites at opposite ends of the State Capitol's second floor, might be chalked up to the kind of rivalry that is an unseemly but unsurprising fact of life atop the state's political food chain. But this relationship, as described in repetitive detail by many in New York Democratic circles, has gone from bad to toxic."

Said one Democrat: "The two men are like oil and water and lately fire seems to have been added."
