What else will she flip-flop on? She simply can't be trusted, I have lost all respect for her said Blaber who pointed out how Andrew Cuomo like him or hate him you know were he stands he is a straight shooter and that is what I want to see in the job of attorney general. " I would not want to be in a fox hole with Pirro he added.
