Democrats call out Lazio on bonus, Lazio hits back on mosque issue


Democrats have a new video out today on Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio’s $1.3 million bonus from JP Morgan.

Lazio, meanwhile, continues to press Democratic rival Andrew Cuomo on investigating the Muslim community center planned two blocks away from the World Trade Center site.

In a video posted on GOP Reality Check, a website built by the state Democratic Party to knock Lazio, issued a video using footage from “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” to portray Lazio, a former congressman, as a “bonus baby” while working for JP Morgan.

The Democrats point to Lazio’s bonus while the bank was accepting funds from the federal government’s Troubled Asset Relief Program.

Lazio’s campaign also released a YouTube video today called “Waiting.” The campaign knocks Cuomo, the current attorney general, for not taking up a debate challenge over building the community center near the World Trade Center and whether or not its funding should be investigated.

“We don’t need silence now, we need leadership,” Lazio says in the video.

Here are the videos:
