Democrats in both Washington DC and New York State are wondering to themselves this week, “how many is it gong to take?”.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is toast. He’s kaput. His career is over. It’s just that he seems to think otherwise, for what reasons we don’t know.
The Empire State leader has been accused of sexual abuse and harassment by a multitude of women at this point, with a ninth accuser coming forward just this week.
The accuser, 55-year-old Sherry Vill, said Cuomo grabbed her face and kissed her cheeks in front of her home in 2017.take our poll - story continues below
“I know the difference between an innocent gesture and a sexual one,” Vill said during a virtual press conference. “I never felt as uncomfortable as I did the day Governor Cuomo came to my house. His actions were very overly sexual, highly inappropriate and disrespectful to me and my family.”
Vill said Cuomo told her she was beautiful and acted in a “highly flirtatious and inappropriate manner.”
Vill was married at the time of the alleged incident, her attorney Gloria Allred said. Cuomo visited Vill’s home in Greece, N.Y., to survey flood damage.
Cuomo has continuously offered denials and half-hearted apologies over the growing number of incidents attributed to him, (and corroborated by others), but has also vehemently refused to resign. This has irked a number of prominent Democratic figures, including NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has been engaged in a war of words with the governor over his obstinate and indignant mindset on the matter.
