Remember when ratface Bill Maher started the mantra that Donald Trump was never leaving the White House even if he lost? Well, millions of voters believe he won 2020 by a massive landslide and it was stolen from him, but he still left the White House on January 20.
I wonder if ratface will say the same about the governor of New York?
On Sunday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo doubled down on his declaration that he will not resign until New York Attorney General Letitia James completes her investigation into numerous allegations – now up to five women have come forward – of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct against him.
“I was elected by the people of the state. I’m not going to resign because of allegations,” the embattled governor said during a conference call. “There is no way I resign.”
Cuomo said calls for him to resign before an investigation is complete was “anti-democratic,” even though he never even waited for an investigation to even begin when he called for Donald Trump to resign after the January 6 riot at the nation’s Capitol.
“Let the attorney general do her job,” said Cuomo dismissing calls for his resignation as pure politics.
“In the meantime, I’m not going to get distracted by this,” Cuomo said. “What is determinative is what the attorney general finds.” And you know darn right well that his people are working on the Letitia James right now.
We reported that two more women came out and made allegations against the governor over the weekend, bringing the total to five. According to The Washington Post Karen Hinton, 62, a former press aide to the governor said Cuomo asked her to his hotel room back in 2000 after a work event and embraced her. She tried to pull away but he pulled her back into him before she could get away from him and ran out of the room.
Ana Liss, 35, worked as a policy and operations aide for Cuomo for about 2 years between 2013 and 2015. She told the Wall Street Journal that Cuomo would make advances toward her inappropriately touching her back and he even kissed her hand once when she got up from her desk. Once he asked her if she had a boyfriend. Liss is an educated professional who told the Journal that Cuomo’s demeaning behavior made her feel like “just a skirt,” saying that Cuomo’s behavior was not “appropriate, really, in any setting.”
“Every woman has a right to come forward, that’s true, but the truth also matters. What she said is not true,” Cuomo said of Hinton on Sunday adding insult to injury. “She has been a longtime political adversary of mine, highly critical for many, many years, and has made many, many accusations.” In sexual harassment court cases of he said, she said what a prosecutor normally does is try to show a pattern of behavior by the accused. I think five women coming forward at different times, making similar allegations shows a pattern of sexual harassment behavior by Andrew Cuomo.
After calling Hinton a liar, when pressed by a reporter, Cuomo said he was not accusing any of the five women of lying. Then he must have a different definition of what constitutes lying because he said that what Hinton said is not true. In my neighborhood that’s calling someone a liar.
Cuomo tried to blow it off as engaging in “friendly banter” as he did with many employees where he would inquire about their weekend plans and if they were dating.
“If customs change, then I’ll change the customs and the behaviors, but I never meant to make anybody feel uncomfortable,” Cuomo said. So when he kissed Lindsey Boylan on the lips without consent did he think she would get a warm and fuzzy feeling instead of being uncomfortable?
On Sunday, as a throw-away, Cuomo said he will sign the bill that limits his emergency powers that the legislature recently passed.
Representative Elise Stefanik (FR-NY) chastised Cuomo after his Sunday press briefing.
“The Worst Governor in America proves more & more each day why he has earned this title. This press briefing threatening elected officials is textbook Cuomo. He is a criminal sexual predator & a corrupt official who needs to be removed from office.
Don’t let him get away with it”
