“I take full responsibility for my actions. I have been too familiar with people. My sense of humor can be insensitive and off-putting. I do hug and kiss people casually — women and men. I have done it all my life,” Cuomo said.
“In my mind, I’ve never crossed the line with anyone. But I didn’t realize the extent to which the line has been redrawn,” he said. “And I should have. No excuses.”
Cuomo has allegedly been a political bully and engaged in retaliation, questionable behavior with nursing home patients with COVID, and now alleged harassment against 11 women. These things have been going on for years. Why all of a sudden have things come to a boil and pressured the governor to resign? What political forces are at work in all this?
“NEW YORK, Aug 3 (Reuters) – An investigation into accusations of sexual harassment by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo found that he groped, kissed or made suggestive comments to 11 women and created a “toxic” workplace in violation of the law, the state attorney general said on Tuesday, with the White House calling the allegations abhorrent.”
“The findings of the inquiry, detailed in a scathing 168-page report, could deal a devastating blow to Cuomo – once seen as a possible presidential candidate – and hinder his administration.”
Personally I think Cuomo is a sleazebag. But if a Republican governor takes his place, he could pardon Trump from all state charges! The former President would get off scot free at the federal AND state levels!
