New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) was just declared guilty by a high-ranking Democrat. The verdict is in and he could be completely finished now.
“The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity,” said Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). This is stunning.
“The independent investigation must have due process and respect for everyone involved,” Pelosi continued. Cuomo is under such pressure that he has even issued an apology to his accusers, but it may not be enough.
Cuomo and his administration are already under fire for reportedly covering-up nursing home deaths due to the governor’s disastrous COVID-19 policy. Now, at least three women have alleged sexual harassment.
To be sure, the investigation should go forward as planned — without any political inference from Cuomo. He should have also already resigned due to the nursing home scandal alone, but he is a stubborn politician.
