Cuomo Tries to Muster Adequate Apology in Lieu of Resignation

If Cuomo thinks this brief little statement is going to save his career, he’s got another thing coming.

If there is anything that the #MeToo movement made clear, it is that we mustn’t allow for words to quench the depravity of actions.

That’s why, after being credibly accused by at least three women of inappropriate behavior, (that included unwanted touching, kissing, and comments), there are few out there who think that anything Andrew Cuomo has to say is going to save his political career.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo apologized for his past behavior following allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior by three women during a news conference Wednesday, telling reporters that he is “embarrassed” by his actions and will cooperate with the New York attorney general’s investigation of his conduct.

During a briefing that first focused on developments in the coronavirus pandemic, Cuomo shifted to address the brewing scandal, stating that he was ignoring the advice of attorneys to address the public.

“I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it,” Cuomo said. “I feel awful about it and frankly I am embarrassed by it.”

Cuomo went on to say that he “never knew at the time I was making anyone feel uncomfortable,” that he has “learned an important lesson,” and “will be the better for this experience.”

Of course, one is instantly reminded of just how incensed the Democrats were when Republicans suggested that Donald Trump had “learned his lesson” during any number of prior scandals.

No, there is little hope for Cuomo to skate on this, and this half-hearted attempt at an apology certainly hasn’t moved the needle.
