As you have probably already heard, actor Cynthia Nixon is running for governor of New York, which really is such a Miranda thing to do.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SiOo4C2CiRQAnd it makes sense, too. Besides being an actor, Nixon is also a native New Yorker and passionate activist who has advocated for the LGBTQ community, equitable public school education, and improved mass transit.But not everyone was thrilled about Nixon announcing her candidacy.Former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, a supporter of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and prominent LGBT figure, called Cynthia Nixon an &quot;unqualified lesbian&quot; a day after the actress announced she&rsquo;s going to challenge the governor in a primary.Man, day one and things are already getting ugly.&quot;I&rsquo;m surprised by this race. It&rsquo;s a flight of fancy on her part,&quot; Quinn told The Post.In 2013, Quinn ran against Bill de Blasio for Mayor of New York City. Nixon was a vocal supporter of de Blasio...and it seems like Quinn has not forgotten that:&quot;Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of New York City. Now she wants an unqualified lesbian to be the governor of New York,&quot; Quinn added. &quot;You have to be qualified and have experience. She isn&rsquo;t qualified to be the governor.&quot;Yikes. No one tell Christine Quinn about our president.Anyway, Nixon (who identifies as bisexual, by the way) had the perfect response:“When I announced yesterday that I’m running for gov, one of Cuomo’s top surrogates dismissed me as an “unqualified lesbian.” It’s true that I never received my certificate from the Department of Lesbian Affairs, though in my defense there’s a lot of paperwork required.” 🤷♀️&mdash; Cynthia Nixon (@CynthiaNixon) March 21, 2018 The tweet went viral, and has been shared over 24,000 times at time of publication.That probably was not what Quinn was expecting. But all press is good press, right?Whatever. I&#39;m voting for whoever fixes the subway system.
