Andrew Cuomo, governor of the bankrupt state of New York, has been in the news of late. Among his many bizarre proclamations are assertions that he could "confiscate" firearms and enact other unconstitutional, anti-gun statutes.
But who is Andrew Cuomo? What you may not know about him is that he was one of key architects of the 2008 housing crisis.
Curiously, not only is this man not a laughingstock (or, better yet, serving in federal lockup), he's ostensibly a front-runner for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2016.
Flashback to 1997, when President Bill Clinton named Andrew Cuomo, a man without any significant real estate or financial experience, the youngest head of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in history.
