“With this law, we will better protect every student that attends college within our borders, and I am proud New York is leading the way once again”
This is just another reminder of what a hypocrite Cuomo is. Funny how no one in the media is mentioning this.
The College Fix reports:
Cuomo once boasted of signing bill to protect women from predators on campus
This week, embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo apologized to three women — including two former aides — who accused him of sexually harassing them, including engaging in unwanted touching and kissing.
Cuomo said he was “embarrassed” by the allegations, adding that he has “learned from what has been an incredibly difficult situation for me as well as other people.”
But years ago, it was Cuomo that boasted of protecting women from sexual predators on the state’s college campuses.
In July 2015, surrounded by a table full of female elected officials that included Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi, Cuomo signed a bill he claimed combatted sexual assault at New York colleges and universities.
“Today, New York is making a clear and bold statement: sexual violence is a crime, and from now on in this state it will be investigated and prosecuted like one,” said Cuomo upon signing the bill.
“With this law, we will better protect every student that attends college within our borders, and I am proud New York is leading the way once again,” Cuomo boasted.
“Today is a tipping point day, and I was proud to stand with Governor Cuomo as he signed into law a strong tool for all the educators, administrators and women fighting to end campus sexual assault once and for all,” Pelosi said at the time.
Cuomo later co-wrote an op-ed with pop singer Lady Gaga boasting of his accomplishment and indicating the need to protect women from sexual predators.
“Unfortunately, for thousands of these students that dream turns into a nightmare because of the unacceptable epidemic of sexual violence that is currently plaguing colleges and universities,” wrote Cuomo and Gaga. “It is a shocking reality that many in academia, government, and society in general still refuse to acknowledge,” they wrote.
