New York governor Andrew Cuomo and progressive challenger Cynthia Nixon had a debate this week and it featured a couple of moments that will leave voters wondering which of them is worse. They both basically admitted to being liars:

Cynthia Nixon Tells Cuomo to ‘Stop Lying’ During Heated Debate
As expected, the New York Democratic primary debate between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Cynthia Nixon on Wednesday was a scorcher. The two battled over everything from health care and public unions, to the state of the New York subway system.
That last topic produced some heated exchanges like this:
“Can you stop interrupting,” Cuomo asked.
“Can you stop lying,” Nixon responded.
“As soon as you do,” Cuomo said.
At one point, Cuomo suggested that Nixon lived in a world of “fiction rather than facts.” While she has a history of advocating on behalf of progressive issues, the governor has enacted real change, he said.
“The government is not about politics, it’s not about advocacy; it’s about doing,” Cuomo said. “It’s about management. This is real life.”
Here’s the video:
This moment was pretty dumb too:
Absolutely painful back-and-forth between Cuomo & Nixon here.
Cuomo tries to accuse Nixon of being "a corporation" and donating as "a corporation" to get special favors in NYC.
