The troubles facing Andrew Cuomo aren’t likely to disappear any time soon, and the New York Governor’s team is hopefully focusing on an exit strategy for their boss this week.
Cuomo is not only in hot water over this attempts to cover-up the damage inflicted by his decision to use NY nursing homes as overflow COVID facilities, but he has now been accused of inappropriate sexual behavior by at least three different women.
Of course, the only way that this could get any worse for Cuomo, (besides another slew of accusers), would be to find some terribly hypocritical past remarks on the subject of sexual harassment.
And…right on cue…
A 2015 tweet from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is coming back to haunt her as Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is facing multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
The New York Times reported on Monday of a third accuser who alleged that Cuomo touched her bare lower back and asked if he could kiss her at a 2019 wedding the two of them attended. This comes after two former aides came forward with other misconduct allegations.
However, an old tweet from the speaker showed her participating in a panel discussion with the now-embattled governor addressing sexual assault on college campuses.
“Too many women are sexually assaulted while in college. Joined @NYGuvCuomo to discuss why #EnoughIsEnough!” Pelosi exclaimed.
The tweet remains online as of this writing.

Pelosi has already suggested that Cuomo’s troubles are his own, and severe, lamenting the Governor’s behavior after just one accuser had come forward last week.
