Bagelgate comes as the longtime actress trails her rival Andrew Cuomo in New York by a wide number.

 

Cynthia Nixon’s sweet talk got her flak on the campaign trail.

The “Sex and the City” actress and New York gubernatorial candidate was filmed recently ordering a cinnamon raisin bagel with lox at a famous New York City deli.
