2 Questions- Does he resign? Does he not run for re-election next year?

As a NY state employee every year I am required to take sexual harassment, workplace violence and active incident classes. It’s not difficult to behave like a decent human being. Since any state employee would be sanctioned or removed for acting like a lout the governor ought to be held to the same standards.

Funny how his nemesis DeBlasio is now rocking it with vaccine passports the “Key to NYC Pass” like a New York Macron with a city getting back to some sense of normalcy.

He’s toast. I always kind of liked him from afar.

Cuomo is a narcissist like the former guy. I wonder how he will deal with these revelations. He has a history of dirty politics. I expect he will be his usual self. He should resign immediately but it’s not his style, or lack there of.

It’s not just on DeBlasio.
Stuff I’ve seen is that one of the major restaurant players (who was one of the first people to ban smoking from his restaurants) is pushing for this also.


Then there are also the major Wall Street firms that are heading the same direction.
So really DeBlasio is just following along.

And he had a real.gift for explanation which was very helpful at a vital time.

Trump tried to get the same popularity with his benighted Covid shows which helped cost Trump the election. Get your brain bleach here.

I just hope AG Tish James is using this as political cover to be bring criminal charges to the Trump clan.

I have never liked Cuomo - to me he represents the worst of the old guard ward heeling backroom deal Democrats. When I heard about the accusations I had no trouble believing them, and no trouble believing he would deny everything and battle it out Trump style by accusing his accusers.

But James’ report is devastating. Not sure he can survive this.

Cuomo will now put all of his efforts into getting R’s elected to Governor and the State legislature, so he can avoid any actual consequences. Not that he needs to be in trouble to try to help R’s get elected.

Eliot Spitzer, Andrew Cuomo — NY Dems might want to reflect on their idea of “leadership traits” before they end up with Governor Sliwa.

The dickhead. I gave him the benefit of the doubt because he has three daughters and should know better.
Hopefully, none of them has to deal with a boss like him.

In the pre-trump era, sure. Once you elect a rapist-in-chief, kinda makes run-of-the-mill grabass and harassment look like small potatoes.

Me, too. I had NO idea how bad it was. Textbook case of a person in a leadership position with a big-ass Dark Side that stayed hidden for years…
