I think he deserves his due process over the harassment claims. But using the term “cancel culture”? Fuck him. That’s a wingnut trope. An in vogue platitude used by the political right in America as a defense from being called down for their bullshit.

Using the bullshit phrase “cancel culture” tells me everything I need to know.

Well, looks like that phrase is going to be saddled around our necks forever. Awesome.

I’m still in observation collection mode on this. But thus far, my hypothesis is that he’s going to ride this bomb out to the bitter end. The one thing that hasn’t occurred yet, but might, is Joe Biden’s telling him he should give it up and resign.

I am a lifelong Democrat and a strong proponent of women’s rights!

I am also not a Cuomo fan and view him to be a lot more Republican (DINO) than a real Democrat. I think he’s a pig.

However, I am tired of Democrats attacking our own and holding our own to different standards than their Republican adversaries.

AOC is great - she’s a progressive like myself. However, she needs to back off on this call for Cuomo to resign. Let due process and voters to hold Cuomo accountable OR even the NY assembly to hold impeachment hearings.

I think back to Democrats quickly turning against Al Franken and prematurely calling for him to resign. We now know that Franken should NOT have resigned! With Cuomo, allow due process to be completed.

What’s his relationship with the Albany Police Dept. like?

Isn’t Albany pretty much one big mafia family in general?

So by next week, he should have allegations from other aides and anonymous witnesses that all the pretty young ladies around the place were trying to get into his pants, and he’s just the victim here.

“The people of New York should not have confidence in a politician who takes a position without knowing any facts or substance. That, my friends, is politics at its worst.”

“The last allegation is not true,” he said. “I have not had a sexual relationship that is inappropriate, period.”
