‘What you are doing is unforgivable’: GOP candidate’s wife confronts Cuomo over attack ads

Mom, school teacher and Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino’s wife, Sheila Astorino, directly accosted Governor Andrew Cuomo, D-NY in a soon-to-be viral video for his misrepresentations about her husband’s position on gun control. 

“Telling people my husband wants guns in classrooms? Guns in classrooms? You can’t be serious. You used an extracurricular rifle safety program in a rural upstate county to make it sound like Rob would threaten the safety of school children. “How dare you? How dare you try to scare parents and teachers with something as serious as that?” she asks. “What you are doing is unforgivable.”

Rob Astorino’s support of an extracurricular rifle safety program in a rural upstate (Sullivan) county was the apparent catalyst for Cuomo’s recent ad which drew the harsh response from Mrs. Astorino, who refers to herself as non-political.
Mrs. Astorino called Cuomo’s ads ugly and dishonest and said she has had to stop her children from watching TV.
