A leading activist for the poor who has ripped Gov. Cuomo over the issue of income inequality actually makes more than the governor.

Michael Kink,  the executive director of the union-backed Strong Economy For All Coalition, makes at least $183,000 a year, sources close to him say.

Kink’s salary tops Cuomo’s $179,000 annual pay. It also dwarfs the less than $110,000 made by fellow activist for the poor, Ronald Deutsch, executive director of New Yorkers For Fiscal Fairness.

Kink, critics point out, is in the top 10% of income earners in New York even as he lives in Massachusetts and benefits from a similar property tax cap that he has criticized in New York.

The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too.
