News, views and commentary on Long Island, state and national politics.

After Andrew Cuomo's acceptance speech, radio host Curtis Sliwa staged a protest outside the meeting hall. Wearing a crown, red cape and sign, saying, "King Cuomo II," Sliwa criticized Cuomo's elevation. Sliwa said, "I am King Cuomo. I have just been coronated" Hotel security guards quickly surrounded Sliwa and led him out of the hotel. He protested, "My rights are being violated in Cuomo-lot." When Sliwa refused to say where his car was parked the guards walked him back to a hotel loading dock, where they took him behind steel doors. A guard said, "He needs medical attention."
