Color me shocked.
Sexual misconduct allegations were alleged against New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo on Sunday, a development that comes alongside news that Joe Biden reportedly considered Cuomo to be attorney general.
The allegations against Cuomo were made by one of his former advisers, progressive activist Lindsey Boylan. Boylan made the allegation on Twitter in a series of tweets on her experience with sexual harassment.
“Not knowing what to expect what’s the most upsetting part aside from knowing that no one would do a damn thing even when they saw it. No one. And I *know* I am not the only woman,” she continued. “I’m angry to be put in this situation at all. That because I am a woman, I can work hard my whole life to better myself and help others and yet still fall victim as countless women over generations have. Mostly silently. I hate that some men, like @NYGovCuomo abuse their power.”
The news comes as Biden has reportedly eyed Cuomo as a pick to be his attorney general, according to multiple news organizations.
“Cuomo has been asked in recent weeks about his interest in the attorney general spot,” The Associated Press reported. “Just this week, he said in a public radio interview in New York, ‘I have no intention to run for president or vice president, or go to the administration.’ But he said the attorney general job ‘is really critical, especially now.’”
……News that Biden is reportedly considering Cuomo for attorney general raised alarms with critics who brought up how Cuomo “hobbled” a commission, called the Moreland Commission, to weed out corruption in New York politics.
Cuomo is also listed as one of the Dem contacts in the Biden family deals with the ChiComs.
