Believe all women, you guys! Except when an alleged groper is a powerful man.
Albany District Attorney David Soares decided to drop the sexual assault charges against former Gov. Andrew Cuomo. From The New York Post:
“Albany County District Attorney David Soares announced today that a thorough and independent review of the investigation into the allegations against former Governor Andrew Cuomo has concluded,” the DA’s office said in a statement.
“While many have an opinion regarding the allegations against the former Governor, the Albany County DA’s Office is the only one who has a burden to prove the elements of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. While we found the complainant in this case cooperative and credible, after review of all the available evidence we have concluded that we cannot meet our burden at trial,” Soares’ statement said.
“As such we have notified the Court that we are declining to prosecute this matter and requesting the charges filed by the Albany County Sheriff be dismissed.”
Cuomo should have been arraigned in Albany City Court on January 7th on sexual assault charges against former staffer Brittany Commisso in 2020.
Commisso claimed, “Cuomo pulled her in for a hug, reached under her blouse and fondled one of her breasts in the Executive Mansion in Albany on Nov. 16, 2020.”

Four district attorneys have decided not to pursue cases against Cuomo for sexual assault and the elderly who died in nursing homes.

FOUR! From The New York Post:
Last week, Cuomo was let off the hook by the Westchester County DA’s Office for inappropriately touching a female state trooper and smooching a random woman during separate incidents while he was in office despite “credible evidence to conclude that the alleged conduct in both instances … did occur.”
“However, in both instances, my Office has determined that, although the allegations and witnesses were credible, and the conduct concerning, we cannot pursue criminal charges due to the statutory requirements of the criminal laws of New York,” Westchester County District Attorney Miriam Rocah said in a prepared statement.
Acting Nassau DA Joyce Smith also dropped the criminal case detailing “credible” and “deeply troubling” allegations that Cuomo ran his hand across the trooper’s belly at Long Island’s Belmont Park in 2019.
On Monday, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office dropped its probe into Cuomo over allegations that he mishandled nursing homes during the initial coronavirus outbreak.
As far as I can tell we still do not have any comments from the Manhattan offices. A source told The New York Post that outgoing DA Cyrus Vance Jr. “quashed” the case last Thursday.
Thankfully, I guess, the feds still have their investigations into the sexual assault and nursing home deaths against Cuomo.
I say I guess because I don’t have faith in the feds either.
