Second Andrew Cuomo Accuser Alleges Sexual Harassment: Have You Ever “Been With An Older Man?”
Will Democrats apply their Kavanaugh “guilty until proven innocent” standard?
New York governor Andrew Cuomo is having a very bad, horrible, no good, very bad month. His horrendous mismanagement of the Wuhan coronavirus involved his order to send COVID-positive patients to senior living facilities and homes. The result was thousands of unnecessary deaths.
Cuomo knew what he had done, what he had ordered, and under cover of a Trump-deranged media wrote a book about his fabulousness, was heralded as possibly the next president, and won an Emmy.
To be honest, I have no idea why the left turned on Cuomo, but he’s totally done now. The latest bombshell is that a second person, presumably more reliable than the first, is accusing him of sexual harassment.
EXCLUSIVE/BREAKING: A 25-year-old former aide to @NYGovCuomo told the @nytimes the Governor sexually harassed her, asking if she had had sex with older men, among other claims.
Cuomo says was a mentor, "never made advances," or acted inappropriately. https://t.co/y7TzreIJj9

Ms. Bennett, 25, said the most unsettling episode occurred on June 5, when she was alone with Mr. Cuomo in his State Capitol office. In a series of interviews this week, she said the governor had asked her numerous questions about her personal life, including whether she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, and had said that he was open to relationships with women in their 20s — comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.
Mr. Cuomo said in a statement to The Times on Saturday that he believed he had been acting as a mentor and had “never made advances toward Ms. Bennett, nor did I ever intend to act in any way that was inappropriate.” He said he had requested an independent review of the matter and asked that New Yorkers await the findings “before making any judgments.”
Ms. Bennett said that during the June encounter, the governor, 63, also complained to her about being lonely during the pandemic, mentioning that he “can’t even hug anyone,” before turning the focus to Ms. Bennett. She said that Mr. Cuomo asked her, “Who did I last hug?”
Ms. Bennett said she had tried to dodge the question by responding that she missed hugging her parents. “And he was, like, ‘No, I mean like really hugged somebody?’” she said.
Mr. Cuomo never tried to touch her, Ms. Bennett said, but the message of the entire episode was unmistakable to her.
“I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Ms. Bennett said. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.”
A Democrat can get away with killing hundreds, even thousands, of elderly people in nursing homes and be heralded as the best governor evah, but once the #MeToo allegations start piling up on top of the Democrat activist media actually reporting on his mismanagement of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, he’s done.

Could not happen to a nicer guy….
What’s really sad here is that NY has had these three consecutive Attorney Generals:
Eliot Spitzer (1999-2006)
Andrew Cuomo (2007-2010)
Eric Schneiderman (2011-2018)
For 19 years, these three were the primary law enforcement officers of the State of New York. What does that tell you about the state of law enforcement in New York?
Maybe it’s a prerequisite for the job.
And yet, Letitia James makes them look good.
Any way this can be spilled over onto Freddo?
What about the voters of New York, some who are alive and citizens? Look at the people that are elected. Clinton, Carlos Danger, UpChuck Schumer, AOC, Coumo, et al. Large problem; much of the time these decrepit bastards are inflicted on the rest of us.
Don’t blame me. I voted for Marc Molinaro, the Republican candidate. Molinaro won almost every county in New York state, except for NYC. Upstate New York hates Cuomo
Trump also won 30 out of 40 counties in New York. NYC is why the Dems win the state.
Shouldn’t every headline on this subject note that he has been “credibly” accused of sexual harassment?
“A Democrat can get away with killing hundreds, even thousands, of elderly people in nursing homes and be heralded as the best governor evah, but once the #MeToo allegations start piling up on top of the Democrat activist media actually reporting on his mismanagement of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, he’s done…”
The #MeToo allegations are just an excuse. No democrat cares, any more than they care about the killings. (Bill Clinton was an accused rapist – and hillary clinton was accused of covering up the rapes and destorying the victims. What democrat cared?)
Cuomo is done because he’s in the way of someone a lot sicker than he is – and a lot more pliable – who will commit the sickest of things against our country in a blind quest for power and easy money. (Can you say: “Harris the ‘Ho”?)
Gretchen Whitmer is next.
How is he in the way of Harris?
She’s the asterisk veep; surely she’s next in line for usurper in chief.
I think the *next* person Cuomo will get a hug from will be Bubba, his cell mate.
Bubba loves to hug.
And, what…? You want to watch? Why so many seem to take great pleasure in the prospect of prisoners being raped is beyond me.
I totally agree with Grizzly… So many criminals suffered neglect, molestation, abuse as children…. Why we would want captive human beings to be harmed while we try to deter them and protect others, I cannot understand.
I will say, for a mass murderer like Cuomo, I will make an exception. Mass murderers and serial killers are an exception….
But your garden variety shoplifter, etc., doesn’t deserve any such harm.
I would not shed a tear if Cuomo was raped, the same for a shiv. How many people are dead because of Cuomo? Cuomo is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Is there anything redeeming about him?
Because now that the democrat party/leftists have established their power base in the White House and Congress Andy’s no longer needed to provide a convenient distraction from their shenanigans and has become a liability and embarrassment to the democrat party. So he must be purged, removed, and dismissed from public life as an unnecessary tool that has outlived its usefulness.
he is the “luv guv”, what did you expect?
To be frank, given the Democrat and their propaganda arm’s track record, the question of why they report on these (credible) allegations now is probably more important than the question of whether they are true.
Women voluntarily working for powerful Democrat men are either stupid or ambitious. It would appear that for the women here the Kamala way was, after all, not to their liking. Or they got offered a better deal if they “come forward.”
Staying agnostic as to the truth of the allegations the important question seems to be why the Democrat propaganda paper publishes the story. It is in stark contrast to their usual posture. They had no compunctions papering over the holocaust. They had no problem with reporting made-up stories against President Trump.
Their guiding principle obviously is not truth but political expediency.
So the key questions here are (1) what political goal are they trying to achieve and (2) which Democrat faction did give the marching order?
Felix, Astute observations, all.
On principle, I object to people being hung on Me Too shit, in this case I am willing to overlook it.
“…I am willing to overlook it.”
And eat popcorn while looking it over.
Cuomo should be compelled to service Pelosi, and Hillary, as live theater, featuring Ant’ny Wiener as master of creative dialogue.
