Starting midnight Monday, digital billboards will light up along I-787 as part of Kat Sullivan’s “ToxicNYTouch” ad campaign.
“I’m taking the GOV & TEAM #TOXICNYTOUCH to my Lamar Billboard in Albany off 787 starting midnight [Monday] as a GLOW IN THE DARK send-off to some of NY’s SLEAZIEST!” Sullivan, who uses the hashtag #freespeechKat, told The Post.
Her ad directed at Cuomo says, “Govs. Don’t Abuse Police to Harass & threaten survivors who turn down your private CVA [Child Victims Act].”
Sullivan had accused Cuomo of directing the state Joint Commission on Public Ethics Commission to investigate her for not registering as a lobbyist after running a series of billboards urging him and the legislature to approve the Child Victims Act in 2018.
Sullivan argued she was an advocate whose actions were protected by the First Amendment. JCOPE eventually dropped the case.
The outspoken advocate is also targeting NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” claiming the show went easy on Cuomo’s sexual harassment scandal because of state tax breaks provided to the TV and movie industry to film in New York.
“Why Were U So Silent? SNL — Was the TV tax credit bill Hush$$$$?,” the billboard says.
SNL has been on hiatus since May 22, an NBC spokesperson said.
The spokesperson also noted actor Peter Davidson’s skit skewering Cuomo when sexual harassment accusations surfaced earlier this year.
In another ad, Sullivan also accuses Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of using “abusers $$$” to fund her ill-fated presidential campaign.
And one billboard asks outgoing Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr., “Do U Help Keep Abusers Out of Jail?”
Sullivan even goes after “SNL” star Alec Baldwin with an ad stating, “Don’t Punch Humans over PUBLIC PARKING!!” referring to the hot-headed actor’s arrest in 2018 over a heated parking spot dispute.
The final billboard tweaks David, a former Cuomo lawyer, with the message, “U Punish Survivors 4 Cuomo?” David has denied any wrongdoing.
Sullivan said she paid Lamar Advertising $3,000 for the digital ad campaign, which will run through August 29.
Asked about the planned blitz, Cuomo spokesman Richard Azzopardi responded, “I have no comment on word salad.”
David, as well as reps for Gillibrand, Vance and Baldwin, didn’t immediately comment.
