Source: NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

ALBANY — Activists opposed to a controversial gas drilling process are going after Gov. Cuomo’s presidential ambitions, taking out ads against him in a key presidential battleground state.

The coalition of more than 135 groups will run an anti-hydrofracking ad Tuesday in an Iowa newspaper. Iowa is the home of the first presidential caucuses. The ads in The Des Moines Register tell Cuomo that “America is looking to you” and demanding that “not one well” be drilled...

1. Oh, Andrew. Be a hero and just say "No!"

You're trying to herd cats here. Most cats have a liberal bent and care about the environment. I'm starting to wonder about your moral compass. Are you going to do the will of the people of NY or what you think is best for your political ambitions? Huh? Make a real name for yourself by doing the right thing--say "no" to fracking in NY.
