It has already been painfully obvious that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo isn’t have a good time. The embattled state official is up against a number of serious, career-ending scandals, that all seem to be coming home to roost at the same time.
The most prominent of his troubles comes from early in the COVID-19 pandemic, when his use of nursing homes for overflow coronavirus patients led to an untold number of deaths. The reason that number is still untold is that Cuomo allegedly attempted to intimidate would-be whistleblowers via some of his “usual” tactics.
Then, just days after the cover-up scandal broke, a former staffer accused the Governor of pervasive and consistent sexual harassment.
And his troubles still were not over.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi broke her silence Sunday almost 24 hours after a second woman brought sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, calling both of the women’s charges “credible.”
“The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity,” Pelosi said in a statement provided exclusively to Fox News. “The independent investigation must have due process and respect for everyone involved.”
The statement comes after a second former aide to Cuomo came forward with sexual harassment allegations just days after his first accuser made her claims public.
Among the complaints made by the staffers were accusations of unwanted touching, comments, gifts, and even kissing.
Cuomo has been asked to resign by a number of his colleagues, all on account of these latest accusations.
