DescriptionThe slimy mailer that sought to link Cynthia Nixon to anti-Semitism was drafted and approved by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s closest advisers, including former top aide Larry Schwartz, sources told The Post Wednesday.

The revelations come five days since the mailer — paid by the state Democratic Party — hit 7,000 mailboxes in Jewish neighborhoods.

Cuomo has adamantly denied he had anything to do with the smear.

But sources said one of his longtime confidants was deeply involved.

“Schwartz was very involved with the mailer and signed off on it,” a Democratic source said, describing the aide as a “henchman” and “enforcer.”

The source added: “It obviously blew up.”
