Cuomo Resigning: “The Best Way I Can Help is if I Step Aside”

Cuomo Resigning: “The Best Way I Can Help is if I Step Aside”

Cuomo still thinks he did nothing wrong: “In my mind I’ve never crossed the line with anyone.”

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is resigning. An investigation found that he sexually harassed 11 women.

The resignation will be effective in 14 days.

Despite resigning, Cuomo still thinks he did nothing wrong:

“I’ve never crossed the line with anyone. But, I didn’t realize the extent to which the line has been redrawn. There are generational and cultural shifts that I just didn’t fully appreciate,” Cuomo said during a Tuesday press conference in which he denied the allegations of sexual harassment charged by state Attorney General Letitia James in a report.

“I want to thank the women that came forward with sincere complaints. It’s not easy to come forward. But you taught me, and you taught others, an important lesson. Personal boundaries must be expanded and must be protected. I accept full responsibility,” he continued.

“This situation and moment is not about the facts. It’s not about the truth. it’s not about thoughtful analysis. It’s not about how do we make the system better. This is about politics.

Greg Price with the mic-drop, though. He should be resigning because of the nursing home scandal and sexual harassment.

Comments

    Unlike Fox talking heads who run and hide from bad news, claiming they are just on vacation, Fredo is on a long ago planned vacay and is unavailable for comment.

    That is the gist of what CNN announced yesterday about Fredo’s disappearance from the boob tube.

      No, it was abrupt. HE NEVER talked about his brother’s misconduct. Look for him to be canned

        “Look for him to be canned”

        Are you serious? It’s more likely Fredo and his serial sex abuser brother will cohost on CNN.

      Being a CNN pundit is never having to say you are sorry. Fredo will stay and will hang with his circle jerk buddy Brian Stelter, who remains a potato.

        PersonofInterests in reply to EBL. | August 10, 2021 at 4:15 pm

        Now that his Big Brother is a disgrace, he has little chance of getting a job elsewhere and he’s too lazy to be cutting lawns, painting houses, or dog sitting.

    Brave Sir Robbin in reply to Pasadena Phil. | August 10, 2021 at 12:48 pm

    Does he get an Emmy for this, too?

    Eddie Baby in reply to Pasadena Phil. | August 10, 2021 at 1:09 pm

    Which Fredo are you talking about. That is a two Fredo family.

    CNN will probably hire Andrew and put them on as a double bill.
    Maybe a 6 month wait.

    How long was Jeffrey Toobin gone?

    jacker29 in reply to Pasadena Phil. | August 11, 2021 at 9:14 am

    Cuomo Prime Time averaged just 954,000 viewers in July 2021, less than half the viewership he had in July 2020. Maybe his numbers will go up when he gets back from “vacation”. (fyi Tuckers viewership was 3.2 million during the same month…hmmmm)

2smartforlibs | August 10, 2021 at 12:16 pm

Notice it wasn’t for killing the elderly.

FortesFortunaJuvat | August 10, 2021 at 12:19 pm

Next step, prosecute.

No, next step is neverending virtue signaling from the left about how they do things the right way (with a straight face and zero internal reflection)

It’s a defense when there’s no due process.

    Edward in reply to rhhardin. | August 10, 2021 at 12:43 pm

    Given that a criminal complaint had just been filed, he would have been accorded far more real due process than Derek Chauvin had. But he decided to take the hint and depart, Wonder what will happen to the criminal complaint now?

      Mercyneal in reply to Edward. | August 10, 2021 at 2:34 pm

      Looks like he will now be investigated for trying to get the Obama White House to get federal prosecutor Preet Bhara to stop investigating Cuomo’s corruption with the Moreland Commission. I suspect that Ronan Farrow’s damning piece about this in the New Yorker that came out today is what pushed Cuomo to resign. He’s in panic mode

        PersonofInterests in reply to Mercyneal. | August 10, 2021 at 4:19 pm

        Not to worry: His pals in Organized Crime will protect him, or show up with smiling faces to give him a little pop; he knows too much.

      gran2ten in reply to Edward. | August 11, 2021 at 9:07 pm

      lost? Misplaced? shredded? up one of his girl sex friends private suitcase? or even better…naw, he’s too chicken to use his own suitcase that resides on his backside, maybe he’ll eat the criminal complaint, New title: kuomo the kinky

    Witch hunts, warlock trials, and protests, past, present, and progressive, notably social justice and trial by press.

    His rights were not violated. He resigned because the political process was pointing to certain impeachment. Cuomo is afraid of the legal due process that would ensue.

His non acceptance of any guilt stretches any believability beyond any reasonable doubt. He should be scorned, but will get book deals and before too long senior statesmen status among Leftists. No accountability for killing thousands of elderly, just pensions and more wealth.

    Idonttweet in reply to Romey. | August 10, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    Not acknowledging any wrongdoing is hardly surprising considering the civil suits he’s already facing and the potential criminal charges.

Cuomo being out of office shouldn’t prevent him from being impeached, right? There’s already precedent. Oh wait, that’s only when it’s a Republican.

Comanche Voter | August 10, 2021 at 12:33 pm

Better for this bozo to get nailed by the Al Franken standard than for his culpability in killing grandmas. When will Biden resign for digitally penetrating Tara Reide?

Why the two-week delay, I wonder?

I am frankly shocked he is announcing his resignation. The unique way impeachment operates in NY, where he would be ousted from authority and forced to vacate from the official residence during the process certainly plays a role. Those factors drastically alter the power dynamics and his ability to simply ride the storm.

I was previously unaware of those factors until late last week. IMO, this makes the refusal of the NY legislature to take action in the wake of his nursing home scandals, especially the cover up, an act of cowardice on their part.

The fact is the NY political establishment had a much stronger hand of cards and instead of using them they made the choice to tacitly support Cuomo’s nursing home policies.

Perhaps the voters in NY will recognize this and take action to remove the legislators, officials and power brokers. I doubt it.

Love it – not only is he saying he didn’t do anything, he says it’s the fault of others, after all, “I didn’t cross the line, I didn’t realize the line was redrawn”.

See, not his fault – somebody else moved the line.

Hey Cuomo…get used to it, that’s typical of your party – always moving the goalpost.

Poor guy…just another victim of having been born too early and now not being able to say “But it was acceptable back then” (yeah, trying to figure out when society redrew the line for putting a hand up a woman’s blouse and cupping her breast).

    Cuomo didn’t do anything inappropriate. He is well-versed in the appropriate ways to grope a young woman. Besides, as he says, he is not a pervert. He’s Italian.

    Also, he believes his accusers and thanked them for having the courage to speak up to right a wrong. But they were lying.

    He also wishes he had a platform to speak out so voters could hear his explanations?????

    My head is hurts.

Cuomo can now concentrate on his presidential aspirations

Maybe the next GOP president can prosecute Cuomo for civil rights violations for killing all those old people. I don’t see any other way to get him. New York will never prosecute.

Next in line will be just that much worse
Bet on it

    My money is on Laticia James. She orchestrated this report and is on the warpath for Trump as well

      henrybowman in reply to NYBruin. | August 10, 2021 at 9:15 pm

      She’s a busy little girl. She’s also pretty involved with dissolving the NRA in a vat of acid at the moment. Is she overreaching? She sure scooped a lot onto her plate.

After some hard work I managed to track down his brother for comment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYabrQrXt4A

But to be serious I was hoping he would tough it out so the true scandal of certain types of patients being sent back into nursing homes would be brought to the fore.

    marta52 in reply to Danny. | August 11, 2021 at 6:45 pm

    A shame. It appears that people are more concerned about a bunch of adult women that could have done something at the time and are being used as victims, than the 15,000 lives lost due to his criminal negligence.

No.
The best way he can help is to admit his wrongdoings, then apologize to the families of all the people he killed.
Then finally, find a building as tall as his ego and jump from it.

Never mind the FIVE (5) separate sexual assault criminal investigations now currently underway in five separate counties of New York where he is alleged to have committed crimes against women over a lengthy period of time as prior complaints up till now had gone all but ignored over the years. Never mind the thousands of elderly and/or infirm people he had killed in the nursing homes early on in the pandemic over a year ago. No no, instead, give him a big ol’ Hollywood Emmy Award that he keeps on his desk for all to see and praise this man Andrew Cuomo for his handling of the COVID pandemic from the get-go, and give this man lofty accolades now for this gallant and noble response to his latest crisis wherein he falls on his sword for the benefit of all New York which will ‘allow New York government to keep on governing New York’. Why, a bronze statue should practically be erected in his honor for such incredible character.

I swear, it must be true, we really are living in Bizarro World now.

Never thought he would do it, maybe a offer he couldn’t refuse.

    Somebody probably whispered in his ear:

    “Epstein did not really killed himself. Did you know that?”

Back before I escaped RI for a more liberty loving state, I wasted a little time chasing down the public lives of the the RI Speakers of the General Assembly – the most powerful position in the state. Seemed as if about half of them wound up resigning in disgrace. Gordon Fox was sentenced to 3 years in Club Fed for misuse of campaign funds and accepting bribes. Local response – “So? Water’s wet, amirite?”
Around 1900, Lincoln Steffens observed the RI was for sale, and for sale cheap. Nothing has changed.

    I have my doubts. And, who would replace her?

    PersonofInterests in reply to Neo. | August 10, 2021 at 4:24 pm

    Oh no, not that meat sack full of petulant hateful stooopid!

    If that is true, then me thinks there is something about to be spilled, e.g., Nasty Nanzi was sleeping with Andrew Cuomo, i.e., he finally scored a lay without having to pay.

    Milhouse in reply to Neo. | August 10, 2021 at 5:34 pm

    Nah. Read the article is says probably in 2023. She already promised that at the end of last year, in order to get one more term at the gavel.

    CommoChief in reply to Neo. | August 11, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    Neo,

    IMO, more d/progressive retirement announcements are forthcoming. If someone was able use seniority for assignment to a ‘good’ committee; Ways and Means, or become a committee chair then they have been in DC for at least a decade and a half, probably longer.

    Reaching that point and receiving the perks of those positions is heady stuff. Reverting to the minority and losing those perks is painful. Especially following apportionment and redistricting that likely locks in that minority status for 3 HoR election cycles.

    Recap that Pelosi asserted the power of the Speaker to determine assignment for minority members to the Jan 6 committee. IMO, the possibility that the next r Speaker might do so over standing committee assignments, which McCarthy has threatened, creates enough uncertainty about minority perks that even more SR d/progressive will take their ball and go home.

    They already have a nice pension and benefits. They have enough favors owed to get put on multiple corporate boards or to become a lobbyist for a nice paycheck. What’s the upside for them running and being in the minority? Payback for Pelosi’s high handed tactics is coming in some form even if you and I don’t think it is enough.

Let’s make that happen for Nancy.

Too bad. If the Dems are able to get rid of him, then that’s kind of scary.

You can bet that this lying snake made a deal to avoid facing the music for the nursing home deaths he caused as well as his butt grabbing.

Two things: 1. It looks like Cuomo memorized Clinton’s arguments about his affair with Lewinsky. We all memorized his lies about the harem he ran while President. 2. This is a reminder of Alcapone’s case: He murdered tens of people, but could only be jailed for tax evasion. Cuomo is responsible for 15,000 deaths but could only be brought down for sexually harassing adult consenting women that could, with a good knee jerk, stop him right then and there.
