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.
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.DONATE
