WHITE PLAINS - Westchester County Executive and Republican gubernatorial hopeful Rob Astorino said Friday he'd consider cutting Medicaid funding for abortions if elected governor this fall.

"Personally, I don't love that, but that's a public policy decision that we could all make together," Astorino said of Medicaid funding for abortions.

In a wide-ranging press conference, Astorino described Albany as a "cesspool of corruption," and said he'd be afraid to let his two daughters work at the Capitol.
