New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is an embarrassment. Not only did he preside over what is effectively murder when he ordered nursing homes to accept COVID-positive patients, but he is a serial sexual harasser who is so horrible that even President* Joe Biden thinks Cuomo should resign from his position.
After a report found that Cuomo had sexually harassed 11 women, Biden spoke out, saying “he should resign” as Governor. CNBC reports:
The report released Tuesday by state Attorney General Letitia James summarized a monthslong probe by concluding that Cuomo “sexually harassed multiple women, and in doing so violated federal and state law,” James said at a press conference.
A somber but defiant Cuomo strongly denied some of those allegations later Tuesday, and said that other examples of his alleged misconduct had been mischaracterized or misinterpreted.
The 165-page report, which comprises interviews with 179 witnesses and a review of tens of thousands of documents, also said that Cuomo’s office was riddled with fear and intimidation, and was a hostile work environment for many staffers.
The women Cuomo is accused of harassing included members of his own staff, members of the public and other state employees, one of whom was a state trooper, the report found.
“I understand the state legislature may decide to impeach, I do not know that for a fact,” Biden says. And he may be correct. New York State House Speaker Carl Heastie says the chamber is definitely hoping to soon conclude its impeachment inquiry into Cuomo, who remains defiant.
It’s time to drain the swamp, as President Trump says — not just in Washington, but everywhere. And Cuomo is absolutely one of the most prominent swamp creatures in existence. In March, Biden predicted that Cuomo would likely be impeached and “prosecuted too.”
