Joe Biden reportedly wants to make New York Governor Andrew Cuomo his Attorney General if he wins the November election. Sources familiar with the situation have told Axios that the National Governors Association is looking into contingencies to replace Cuomo, 62, as chair because he would no longer be able to chair the organization if he becomes AG. According to the report published Sunday afternoon, 'the governor is being pushed for the job and Biden would consider him based on their long friendship.'

Just what we need as an AG of the U.S, a serial killer of the elderly. Then this lunatic lies about what he did and blames the U.S. Government to cover it up. To throw out one more thing, he loves control and he hates religious worshipers. He sort of sounds like Eric Holder.

Andrew would be all in to be AG. He can lift weights at the DOJ, and Kamala, over at the White House, might take a shine to him like with "Big Willie" Willie Brown. Bill Clinton proved that partying in the Oval Office is "just sex" and you're alone there (if you ignore the Secret Service will be listening). Does Andrew have cigars?

If Biden wins (big if), I don't think he is picking any of this cabinet members. The Left has already cast lots and determined who they will be. Look for squad members and representatives of various interest/identity groups to be lined up.

Well that’s the way the “insider” leftist and liberal Democrats do business, in this case appointing a Democrat to be Attorney General who was directly responsible as the Governor of New York for putting contagious COVID patients in nursing homes where they infected many thousands of frail elderly residents that proved fatal to many of those nursing home residents. Of course Cuomo is going to deny the fact that Biden would select him to be Attorney General as he has no way to know if Biden will win the election.

This is bad on so many levels. Somebody who commits manslaughter without the slightest hesitation should be put in a prison, not in charge of putting people into it. Between this and Harris with her keeping people in prison even after found innocent, Biden is a walking, barely breathing disaster in the making. I am starting to see hints of that scandalous record of Harris making its way into the public venue. There are even accusations she kept them there for the cheap labor. Can you say slavery? But this is our democrat party as it currently stands.

The viewership numbers for the sixth and final game of the NBA Finals are in, and they are atrocious. Game 6 drew, at its peak, 6.028 million viewers.

WASHINGTON —  A group of prominent Christians from both sides of the aisle, including a past faith advisor to President Obama, is forming a political action committee designed to chip away at Christian support for President Trump in the final weeks of the 2020 campaign. The new super PAC, dubbed Not Our Faith, plans to roll out TV and digital ads focused on Christian voters — particularly the evangelical and Roman Catholic voters who helped Trump secure victory in 2016. Its first digital ad, set to run in the battleground states of Michigan and Pennsylvania, takes sharp aim at Trump’s claim to a foothold with Christians. Correction*

James Arkin of Politico writes: South Carolina Democrat Jaime Harrison raised a staggering $57 million in the third quarter of this year, shattering the previous record for a Senate candidate as he seeks to unseat GOP Sen.
