Well, well, the hero of the COVID pandemic is in trouble. New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo is being surgically taken apart by other Democrats for years of sexual harassment. New York’s Attorney General, Letitia James said, “What this investigation revealed was a disturbing pattern of conduct by the governor of the great state of New York. These 11 women were in a hostile and toxic work environment.”
You know Cuomo is in real trouble when even President Biden said, "I think he should resign. I'm sure there are some embraces that were totally innocent. But apparently the attorney general decided there were things that weren't," That from a guy (good old Joe) known for his preoccupation with “petting” women and girls.
We would like to say we are surprised but really does this news come as a shock to anyone? An egomaniac that wrote a book on pandemic leadership while literally tens of thousands died in his state should have been a clue on how clueless this lifelong politician is. Of course, he sexually harassed women. That’s what power hungry narcissistic men do. They think every woman adores them the way they adore themselves. Don’t think so Andy.
Cuomo said Tuesday his actions had been misconstrued; his words misunderstood. He said it was cultural: He hugs, he kisses, he says "Ciao, bella." He said it was generational: Sometimes he lapses into "honey" or "sweetheart" or tells bad jokes.
Some culture he comes from. The AG report details numerous allegations against the governor, including that the governor “hugged Executive Assistant #1 and then reached under her blouse and grabbed her breast” on November 16, 2020. It went on to say “On multiple occasions in 2019 and 2020, the Governor engaged in close and intimate hugs with Executive Assistant #1 during which he, on occasion, grabbed her butt.”
You shake your head to think just a few years ago this guy was considered presidential. Many Democrats loved this guy. Probably the most disturbing piece of all this is the fact that he will be taken down for sexual harassment and not for the alleged (we believe probably accidental) murder of thousands of elderly nursing home patients under his “leadership.” He has never taken any responsibility for sending sick COVID patients back into nursing homes and infecting and eventually killing many residents.
Cuomo must have made some powerful enemies in New York. It is so unlike the Democrats to throw one of their own under the bus. Usually, this type of stuff is covered up and heaven knows CNN and the governor’s dopey brother tried mightily to down play the harassment. The Washington Post even reported that Chris Cuomo participated in strategy calls with his brother when the allegations went public.
It is still possible for Cuomo to weather the storm and stay in office. Others have done so including Virginia Governor, Ralph “Black Face” Northam. But it seems his political aspirations are now no more. He is persona non grata in politics and polite society. As Christians we should not take pleasure in the downfall of the governor as none of us are in a position to judge. But we must admit, watching a powerful egomaniac go from hero to chump is a bit tasty.
