NY Governor Cuomo Resigns Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

Greg Albaugh | Citizens Journal Contributor

Under the pressure of 11 allegations of sexual harassment the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo has decided to resign.

Cuomo has been under scrutiny for the alleged incidents which he continues to deny any wrong doing.

The governor started his press conference by saying he’s “deeply” sorry for any behavior deemed inappropriate during his time in office but denied the sexual harassment allegations by multiple current and former employees during state Attorney General Letitia James’ investigation. Cuomo accused state investigators of bias after the report accused him of sexually harassing 11 women from 2013 to 2020 in violation of state and federal law, Fox News reported.

The political pressure from President Joe Biden and Rep Chuck Schumer (NY) has resulted in this move.

Cuomo will step down in 14 days to allow for an organized transfer of the office. When Cuomo officially steps down from his position, Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, a little-known New York Democrat who has served with him for two terms, will assume office. Last week, Hochul called his behavior “repulsive ” and “unlawful,” but declined to comment extensively citing her place in the line of succession according to the Daily Wire.

The Daily Wire reported The attorney general’s report found that Cuomo engaged “in unwelcome and non-consensual touching” and made “numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women.”

“Our investigation revealed that the Governor’s sexually harassing behavior was not limited to members of his own staff, but extended to other State employees, including a State Trooper on his protective detail and members of the public,” it read.

It’s a story as old as society. Old dude who has some power hits on young fresh women. Old dudes who have power AND charisma get away with it. (JFK, CLINTON) Old dudes who have some power and are gross-get busted (Cuomo) What about old gross dudes with no charisma who still get away with it? (LBJ) That’s where a failed Media comes into play.

Don’t thinks this is the end of Cuomo.

This statement of fact concerning a corrupt establishment that rewards murder while punishing constitutionality is no endorsement of Cuomo:

Headline from Yahoo: “Andrew Cuomo’s resignation shows 1 party is still capable of shame.”
Yeah, when it appears that he is about to be impeached and charged with criminal charges involving sexual assault after insisting time and again that he was most definitely not going to resign. I don’t know about NY law, but sexual assault is usually a felony here in CA. Of course, typically, when it involved a big name politician, the DA takes a plea to a misdemeanor so the big time pol doesn’t have to spend time mixing with the hot polloi in the cross-bar motel.

The personification of “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

If you would like some suggestions for going away music to accompany Cuomo’s “No I won’t quit” exit, here are a couple of samples. Sorry to plagiarize Fats, one of my favorite performers and, of course, Louis Armstrong whom everyone loved.

you said, “good-bye”
Ain’t that a shame?
You’re the one to blame
Ain’t that a shame?
Oh, well, goodbye
Ain’t that a shame?
You’re the one to blame

or if your preference to music runs to Louis Armstrong rather than Fats Domino, how about this:

Now I’ll be glad when you die, you rascal, you, uh-huh
I’ll be glad, oh, I’ll be tickled to death when you leave this earth–it’s true, oh yeah
When you’re lyin’ down six feet deep, no more fried chicken will you eat
I’ll be glad when you’re dead, you rascal, you, oh yeah

Ah, you just ain’t no good, oh, you dog!
