IBT: America Rising PAC Creates Anti-Andrew Cuomo MTA Snapchat Filter

The political action committee America Rising tweeted Tuesday evening that it had “something planned” for the Snapchat filters at Pennsylvania Station in New York City for the morning commute Wednesday. The filter was one part of a plan to blame summer transportation woes on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The goal of the opposition research group is to bring attention to Cuomo before his 2018 reelection run and possibly a run for the Presidency in 2020 that he has yet to announce. In addition to the Snapchat filter, the group also posted a video to Twitter of rapid fire news clips about Metropolitan Transportation Authority issues that have plagued New York City for months now. The video plays off of Cuomo’s own terminology, “Summer of Hell,” to classify the city’s commute problems.
