Hang in there Guv’ !

Hey, he’s your friend!

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., joined a chorus of public officials on Tuesday calling on fellow Democrat Andrew Cuomo to resign as governor of New York after the state attorney general held a press conference on an investigation into accusations of sexual harassment against him.

New York Attorney General Letitia James said the investigation found that Cuomo had groped, kissed or made suggestive comments to 11 women, creating a “toxic” workplace in violation of the law.

“Under Attorney General Letitia James, a comprehensive and independent investigation into the allegations against Governor Cuomo has been completed,” Pelosi said in a written statement. “As always, I commend the women who came forward to speak their truth. Recognizing his love of New York and the respect for the office he holds, I call upon the Governor to resign.”

Schumer, along with fellow New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, called on Cuomo to resign in March when the allegations were made. They reiterated that call in a joint statement on Tuesday.

“As we have said before, the reported actions of the Governor were profoundly disturbing, inappropriate and completely unacceptable,” they said. “Today’s report from the New York State Attorney General substantiated and corroborated the allegations of the brave women who came forward to share their stories — and we commend the women for doing so.”

The senators noted that the investigation found that Cuomo had “a pattern of sexually harassing current and former employees, retaliated against at least one of his accusers and created a hostile work environment.””

Comment: A hypocritical, narcissist through and through. Can you imagine a fool like this? He thought all these women yearned for his touch and affection? Que hombre muy macho!! Ah, that’s Castellano. Sorry I don’t know the Italian equivalent. The best was the beautiful State Policewoman assigned to his security detail whom he molested in an elevator where she could not escape. What did he think was going to happen?

And then there are the 15,000 dead old people condemned by his ruthless and stupid decision to send known infectees into nursing homes where they would harvest one and nearly all like the Angel Azrael on a kamikaze run. Why did he do that? Is it not obvious that in his mind it was better they die than that he should accept help from Trump in the form of the US Navy hospital ship and the hospitals the Army Corps of Engineers built and equipped like the one at the Javits Center. All these new assets were sadly underused in the crisis.

IMO this fellow should stay on and fight it out to the end. Cowboy up Cuomo! Your greatness demands that. pl

    Anyone that “writes” a book on how they beat a pandemic not even 1/4 of they way into it is likely not going to set his crown and sword on the ground that easily. I could be wrong but it would be a rare event indeed. I think this commie fight is going the full 12 rounds.

    Rudy’s looking for work and is broke, Mario should retain him as his attorney.

    “Che uomo molto macho!”

    On the nursing home deaths:

    The nursing home issue was never going to be the one, it’s too ambiguous.

    The Sexual Harassment could be . . . but the NYS Impeachment law is probably too open-ended for anyone (or at any rate, any politician’s) comfort. It is easy to impeach anyone for anything . . . or nothing: https://gothamist.com/news/so-how-does-impeachment-work-new-york-state

    The Covid19 Cuomo variant: particularly hazardous to pretty women and oldsters in nursing homes.

  5. akaPatience says:

    I wonder if calls for resignation by the likes of Pelosi and Schumer are sincere or for show? If sincere, I wonder who they have in mind as his successor?

    It would seem to me that Cuomo’s chances of being re-elected to a 4th term aren’t great at this point. Between sexual harassment and NH deaths, I can’t imagine his name recognition will be enough this time around. But it can always be worse, with unabashed Marxists out of the closet now. So if his opponents in 2022 are too far left, he just may hang on with the venerated Cuomo name being enough to carry him to victory.

      I personally think if he follows the good Colonel’s advice and rides this out, he’s all but assured a 4th term. Lee Zeldin won’t unseat him, and the people of NY are so far gone down the hole of Leftist madness, willingly drinking from the MSM propaganda fountain, that they will happily vote overwhelmingly for a serial sex assaulter/mass killer of the elderly over someone with an (R) next to his name. Maybe he gets primaried, but I still he think he rides it out. I also believe this is why Newsome will survive his recall, too. There are just that many idiots in both states.

      As an aside, I also predict Chris Cuomo will keep his job at CNN. Same reasons.

        The Cuomo crime family has been running NY state Dem politics for decades. He’s not going anywhere. He has a lot of markers to call in. A lot of people there “owe him”. Not to mention he & his family have mob ties:

        New York Governor Mario Cuomo Was A Mafia Denier
        Mario Cuomo, the three-term governor of New York from 1983 to 1994, was a Mafia denier, and his administration did little to target the crime families. Indeed, he once infamously said that the Mafia’s existence is “a lot of baloney” and it’s just “a word invented by people.”

        When Gambino boss Paul Castellano was whacked in 1985 in front of Sparks Steak House in Manhattan the governor even “urged reporters to refrain from invoking the word Mafia in reference to the hit.” Cuomo then criticized the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York for refusing to bury Castellano in sacred ground.

        Cuomo once had presidential ambitions but abandoned them due to speculation about mob connections — particularly involving father-in-law Charles Raffa who suffered a near-fatal beatdown in 1984 outside a vacant supermarket he owned in Brooklyn — in a November 1987 cover story “Mario Cuomo and Those Mob Rumors” for New York magazine by Nick Pileggi.

        Even though Mario Cuomo was a Mafia denier, William Fugazy, one of his earliest political supporters and bosom buddies, was a Genovese crime family associate. Fugazy founded the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations of which Cuomo was a member, and in 1986 the Governor appointed Fugazy to head the New York State Statue of Liberty Centennial Commission. Onetime Lucchese acting boss Al D’Arco testified in a 1997 trial that Bill Fugazy had ties to Genovese boss Vincent Gigante. Fugazy and Roy Cohn were co-promoters of the second and third Johansson-Patterson heavyweight title fights in 1961 and 1962, and Cohn’s ties to Fat Tony Salerno are extensive. In the mid-1960s Fugazy was a co-owner of Julius’s Restaurant in Greenwich Village which during the late night and wee morning hours was converted to a gay bar.

      • Lysias says:

        If Cuomo is successfully impeached, will that mean he can’t run again?

  6. Deap says:

    Is Kamala starting to nuke her 2024 competition? The issues raised are right up her alley.

  7. TV says:

    Coumo could very well be reelected.
    The NY state electorate (dominated by NY City) ALWAYS votes for the Democrat because:
    The union says so, or….
    The family has always voted Democrat because the “Democrats are for the little guy” or something equally stupid, or….
    Keep the free stuff coming.

  8. Harry says:

    I dont know how true this is, but I was told Trump and Cuomo got on like a house on fire and often had dinner together.

    For what little its worth, I can think of good things Trump has done. I struggle when it comes that Cuomo. Frankly US policy has changed surprisingly little since Trump left. Apparently Liberals approved of most of his policies after all!
