Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

GOP nominee for governor Marc Molinaro called for the dismissal of MTA Board Member Larry Schwartz, former secretary to the governor, for his admitted involvement in the controversial mailer implying Democratic candidate Cynthia Nixon was soft on anti-Semitism.  The Cuomo campaign said Schwartz mistakenly signed-off on it, but only looked at the "positive section" of the mailer.

While in Albany, Molinaro also called for the full release of communications between Schwartz and state agencies charging that he may be working as an unregistered lobbyist.  The former secretary is now Chief Strategy Officer at OTG, a private company that is receiving state funds as part of the current upgrades happening at LaGuardia Airport in New York City.

Molinaro also took issue with Cuomo and his campaign staff calling him "Trump mini-me" saying the governor is "lying" and knows he didn't vote for the current president in 2016.
