Citizens of the State of New York have a real headache brewing, as their grope-y Governor refuses to read the writing on the wall.
Andrew Cuomo now stands accused of sexually harassing and/or assaulting half a dozen women, and he has shown little remorse, instead defending himself and accusing his alleged victims of simply making it all up. This defense has never really worked in politics before, so Cuomo’s decision to continue on with this strategy is ill-advised at best.
And then there are the litany of New York Democratic leaders who’ve called on him to resign in increasingly frequency and volume over the course of the last week.
Now even the White House weighing in on the story…but just a little bit.
President Joe Biden broke his silence on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s mounting allegations of sexual misconduct on Sunday — but fell short of calling on the embattled New York Democrat to resign.
The president and longtime Cuomo acquaintance finally addressed the scandal in an unscheduled Q&A session at the White House’s South Lawn after several Democrats joined the growing chorus of lawmakers who have demanded the governor’s resignation following the seventh allegation of sexual misconduct.
When asked whether he agreed with other Democrats calling for Cuomo’s immediate resignation, Biden said plainly, “I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us.”
Biden’s choice of words may come back to haunt him with the #metoo crowd, who just so happen to overlap heavily with the radical leftists who pushed him over the top in 2020.
