Andrew Cuomo's Birthday Party Crashed by Green New Deal Protesters

A fundraising event for Andrew Cuomo on December 4 – billed as a birthday celebration for the New York governor – was crashed by protestors demanding he endorse a tax on billionaires to fund a ‘Green New Deal’.

Protestors had planned to disrupt the fundraiser for Cuomo’s re-election campaign and present him with a birthday cake with #MakeBillionairesPay written in icing on the top.

Individual tickets for the event ran as high as $5,000 dollars, according to reports. Cuomo will turn 62 on December 6. Credit: Nychange via Storyful
