NY lobbying firm analogizes Gov. Cuomo to Jesus

Some have Jesus Christ; the lobbying firm of Malkin & Ross, it would appear, has New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A season’s greetings card sent out by the firm features a blue, snowy cover with the inscription “’Tis the Season Wise Men Celebrate His Birth.”

Open the card and one finds a picture of Cuomo, with the governor’s Dec. 6 birthday stamped above and the text “Greetings from Your Friends at Malkin & Ross.”

Malkin & Ross, on their homepage, link to a short article about the card by The Times Union of Albany, which declares it the winner of this year’s greetings cards.

“Call it New York-style ecumenicism. Rather than some mixture of good wishes for Chanukah, Christmas or the Winter Solstice, Malkin & Ross notes that we must celebrate the birth of our leader, Andrew Cuomo,” the paper’s Jimmy Vielkind wrote in his piece headlined “Unto us, a governor is born” Thursday.

The lobbying firm did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller’s requests for comment and Arthur Malkin, a co-founder and principal of Malkin & Ross, was short with the New York Times, telling the paper, “We’ve had a policy for 20 years, since we’ve been doing cards, that the card speaks for itself, and we leave it at that.”

Malkin & Ross’ clients include the Alliance for Clean Energy New York, the American Lung Association, the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies, NARAL – Pro-Choice New York and a wealth of others.
