This week was quite the week for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose reputation was already being tarnished by the terrible realties surrounding some of his decision making in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.
Cuomo had chosen to use nursing homes as overflow facilities as the state’s hospitals began filling up. This led to an unmanageable spread of coronavirus within these largely at-risk populations, and a subsequent attempted coverup of the extent of the damage was soon sniffed out by investigative journalists.
Now, to add insult to injury, Cuomo is being accused of being pervasively and consistently prone to sexually harassing at least one former aide, who detailed the degrading abuse she endured at Cuomo’s hands earlier this week.
The New York Attorney General may even be getting involved.
New York Attorney General Letitia James is reviewing a letter from state senators asking her office to investigate the sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Fox News has learned.
Republican state Sens. Patricia Richie, Susan Serino, Pamela Helming, Daphne Jordan and Alexis Weik penned a letter to James’ office requesting a “formal investigation” into the allegations of “abusive, sexist and harassing behavior” of Cuomo toward his former aide, Lindsey Boylan.
The Senators were not pleased.
The senators, in the letter, requested the “immediate appointment of a Special Prosecutor to conduct this investigation,” and called the allegations “potentially criminal in nature.”
“At a minimum, the seriousness of these allegations clearly warrant a comprehensive, immediate investigation by an independent special prosecutor,” they wrote.
A source from James’ office told Fox News that they are in receipt of the letter and are reviewing it.
Mainstream media outlets were largely criticized for their unwillingness to report on the story, with many wondering if the omission was yet another sign of their liberal leanings.
