I’ve been asked my opinion of NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo: he’s a thin-skinned, short-tempered jerk. I don’t like him, and I never have; I would not have voted for him in any primary (full disclosure: I cannot stand his brother, either, and frankly never understood the cult-like love for his father). He’s NY’s problem.
Oh, you mean the harassment story. Same answer, really. If he is a serial harasser then he needs to face repercussions for it (the Republicans would say he must be cancelled, because they learned a new word). But the big word in that sentence is the “if.”
Right Wingers tell me I’m a hypocrite. I see nothing hypocritical about this.
Of course the allegations need to be investigated and any wrongs found need to be righted. And yes, I generally believe women who say this has happened to them, and thus investigations are always appropriate to confirm. I would say the same thing if the victim/accuser is a man, btw. Or a Republican.
Sen. Al Franken was never given the chance to have an investigation (and defend himself) and the Virgin Mayor of Keg City Brett Kavanaugh had powerful Republicans block for him; Christina Blaisy Ford’s allegations are still out there in the ether.
I don’t see any parallels between those people and Cuomo except so far no one has been investigated. I don’t see anything hypocritical in my position. Let the process play out.
Get on it, NYers, this is your story.
