Candidate for NY gov calls for ground zero mosque inquiry

ALBANY, New York  — A Republican candidate for governor of New York said Democrat gubernatorial candidate, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, is playing to his liberal voter base by refusing to open an inquiry into plans to build a mosque near ground zero.
Rick Lazio called Cuomo an incompetent attorney general and said he has not received a response from Cuomo's office to his July 7 written request for an inquiry into a Muslim charity that plans to build a community center and mosque in lower Manhattan.
No funds have yet been raised for the proposal to replace a building damaged on Sept. 11, 2001.
Cuomo said that anyone who has evidence of wrongdoing should send it to the office and it will be reviewed.
