An unlikely figure has stepped out to say that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s multiple sexual harassment allegations should be investigated — Joe Biden. Biden, who is internationally infamous for groping and sniffing women and girls without their consent, suddenly thinks credible sexual harassment allegations should be investigated — something he didn’t quite agree with when he was accused of similar stuff by former staffer Tara Reade.
During the last election cycle, Reade came out about a time when Biden forced a kiss on her and touched her inappropriately while she was working on his staff. The allegations were credible right down to an old phone call from Reade’s deceased mother speaking out about how her daughter was treated. But Biden didn’t want to hear about that. Instead, he had his former staff smear the poor woman, who just wanted to make the public aware of what she went through. But Cuomo? He’s not Biden, so the President* is OK with throwing him under the bus. During a press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that Biden supports women who speak out (once again, something we know is not true):
“President Biden has been consistent that he believes that every woman should be heard, should be treated with respect and with dignity. Charlotte should be treated with respect and dignity. So should Lindsey. There should be an independent review looking into these allegations, and that’s certainly something he supports and we believe should move forward as quickly as possible.”
Cuomo is accused of sexual harassment by two women. The first, Lindsey Boylan says he invited her to play strip poker, forced a kiss on her, and other disgusting things. The second says Cuomo regularly made inappropriate remarks, including grilling her about whether or not she has had sex with older men.
Cuomo says both women are lying, but has authorized an investigation into his actions.
“I ask all New Yorkers to await the findings of the review so that they know the facts before making any judgements,” Cuomo says. “I will have no further comment until the review has concluded.” We’re certain that this investigation will be every bit as above board and legitimate as the Russia investigation — except the goal here will be to make evicence go away rather than invent it.
