Creepy Cuomo has resigned as NY governor over the multiple accusations of sexual harassment but his directive that sent COVID infected patients to nursing homes that resulted in thousands of deaths, has been ignored by the media.
If he were Republican….you know the rest.
In a dramatic fall from grace, Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday surrendered to the wave of scandals that have ensnared his administration and left him facing impeachment, announcing that he will resign by the end of the month rather than mount a brutal defense against sexual harassment allegations.
He made the announcement in a 22-minute televised address, during which he once again sought to cast the attorney general’s documentation of sexual harassment and groping as politically motivated.
“I think that given the circumstances, the best way I can help now is if I step aside,” Cuomo said from his Midtown office, telling New Yorkers that he would step down because of the time and toll a previously promised fight to stay in office would take.
Cuomo’s resignation marks an ignominious end to the Democrat’s three-term run as governor, the same number of terms to which his late father — Gov. Mario Cuomo, whom the younger Cuomo idolized — was elected.
By resigning before his term ends, Andrew Cuomo will not match the three full terms as governor that the family patriarch served.
“This is one of the most challenging times for government in a generation,” said the outgoing governor. “Government really needs to function today, government needs to perform. It is a matter of life and death.”
……The impeachment fight, he said, would “consume government.”
“It will cost the taxpayers millions of dollars,” he went on. “It will brutalize people.”
It would be brutal for him.
During the pandemic, he basked in the fawning media spotlight by giving daily briefings and turned into a celebrity on his brother’s CNN show, engaging in cringe worthy banter. All this took place as his regime covered up the COVID-19-related deaths at nursing homes.
All things considered, he should return the Emmy.
The NY Post broke the news that Cuomo’s top aide, Melissa DeRosa, had privately apologized to Democratic lawmakers for withholding the state’s nursing home death toll from COVID-19 — telling them “we froze” out of fear that the true numbers would “be used against us” by federal prosecutors.
The FBI and the US Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn announced they would be probing the incident.
He is responsible for the deaths of thousands of elderly people through depraved indifference. He should face murder charges.
I won’t hold my breath.
