The long-standing feud between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his predecessor, former Gov. Eliot Spitzer, has returned.

Spitzer accused Cuomo by way of Politico of having “an Orwellian relationship with fact” when it came to how the current governor is characterizing funding for poor school districts and a lawsuit surrounding the issue.

A Cuomo spokesman in response blasted Spitzer, referencing the prostitution scandal that prematurely ended his term when he resigned in 2008.

“Eliot Spitzer resigned in disgrace after being revealed to be a liar and a lawbreaker,” said Cuomo spokesman Rich Azzopardi. “He should go back to his hole and stay there.”

And, later on Wednesday morning, Cuomo also knocked Spitzer’s tenure.

“There are facts,” Cuomo said. “Look at the budget on the Spitzer, I don’t want to call it an administration because it wasn’t. The short period of time that Spitzer was in the Capitol before he disgraced the office and the people of the state of New York.”

Spitzer’s tumultuous half term in office included an investigation surrounding the record keeping of the then-majority leader in the state Senate and helicopter trips that had been logged by the State Police and an investigation by Cuomo, who was attorney general at the time.

Cuomo has sought to turn the page surrounding the Campaign for Fiscal Equity suit and the push by education activists have made to boost school aid.

“Let’s argue the hear and now,” Cuomo said, pointing to a report examining school funding issues.
