In the latest episode of Leftist Hypocrisy 101, we find Governor Cuomo in the hot seat once again. This time he’s accused of persistent, ongoing sexual harassment.
Lindsay Boylan, long-time former Biden aide, stepped forward to detail Cuomo’s disturbing behavior. But before we even entertain her accusations, it’s important to take a look back at a little slice of Cuomo history.
In 2018, a lying skank by the name of Christine Blasey Ford allowed Democrats to use her as a tool against the honorable Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing to the Supreme Court. Her baseless claims of sexual harassment created a media circus for weeks.
At the time, Governor Cuomo insisted Kavanaugh take a lie detector test to prove his innocence. In fact, he was a staunch critic of Republicans who worked to clear Kavanaugh’s name.
I wonder if Cuomo will insist on his own polygraph?
Boylan’s story differs quite a bit from Christine Blasey Ford’s. Namely, because it is credible.
In one excerpt, Boylan writes:
Governor Andrew Cuomo has created a culture within his administration where sexual harassment and bullying is so pervasive that it is not only condoned but expected. His inappropriate behavior toward women was an affirmation that he liked you, that you must be doing something right. He used intimidation to silence his critics. And if you dared to speak up, you would face consequences.
That’s why I panicked on the morning of December 13.
While enjoying a weekend with my husband and six-year-old daughter, I spontaneously decided to share a small part of the truth I had hidden for so long in shame and never planned to disclose. The night before, a former Cuomo staffer confided to me that she, too, had been the subject of the Governor’s workplace harassment. Her story mirrored my own. Seeing his name floated as a potential candidate for U.S. Attorney General — the highest law enforcement official in the land — set me off.
In a few tweets, I told the world what a few close friends, family members and my therapist had known for years: Andrew Cuomo abused his power as Governor to sexually harass me, just as he had done with so many other women.
A Paper Trail
Not only is Boylan credible, but she also has a paper trail to back her up, including electronic messages that validate her claims. According to Boylan, the final straw happened when Cuomo kissed her on the mouth unexpectedly. No longer feeling comfortable or safe, she resigned from her position at the Governor’s office.
Now, the question is whether Cuomo will be held accountable. New York law is already a bit outdated in dealing with the complex issues of sexual harassment.
As Greg Jarrett writes:
Regrettably, there are strict statute of limitations issues that may protect Cuomo from any criminal prosecution because his alleged victim did not step forward sooner. These antiquated statutes must be revised because they fail to understand the obvious reluctance of many victims who are both traumatized and fear retribution.
However, Cuomo should be under strict review.
There is no doubt that these allegations of appalling conduct by Gov. Cuomo demand a thorough investigation into potential crimes, irrespective of whether the statute of limitations has run. Moreover, New York Attorney General Letitia James is now duty-bound to launch a civil rights probe of Cuomo’s behavior.
In a recent letter to all residents of the state, James declared, “I am committed to equality in the workplace and to the enforcement of federal, state and local laws that give employees the right to be free from sexual harassment.”
There’s no way Cuomo should be the next Attorney General of the United States. Between his incompetent handling of the scamdemic, the nursing home scandal, and now this- its clear Cuomo belongs behind bars. But like most leftists, he’ll barely get a slap on the wrist. Unless New York suddenly wises up. And I wouldn’t count on that.
