Cuomo Announced His Resignation

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced his resignation over the state AG’s report of sexual harassment. One of the accusers has filed criminal charges against him for groping. Cuomo says he’s leaving office in two weeks. Why the delay? Closet-sweeping? He has been faced with the state Judiciary Committee’s plan to impeach after 11 women who worked for him accused him of sexual harassment and unwanted overtures. (The Epoch Times)

In his announcement, Cuomo said some things that were indicative of his out-of-touch thoughts. He still denies sexually harassing the eleven women, and accused the investigation of bias. He stated that the report was full of “flaws that should concern all New Yorkers.”

It is a matter of life and death. Government operations and wasting energy on distraction is the last thing government should be. I cannot be the cause. New York tough means New York loving, and I love New York and I love you. I would never want to be unhelpful in any way, and I think given the circumstances, the best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to governing, and therefore, that’s what I’ll do…

When there is a bias or a lack of fairness in the justice system, it is a concern for everyone. There is a difference between alleged improper conduct and concluding sexual harassment. Now, don’t get me wrong, this is not to say that there are 11 women who I truly offended. There are, and I deeply, deeply apologize…

I have slipped and called people ‘honey, ’sweetheart’ and ‘darling.’ I mean it to be endearing but women found it dated and offensive. I take full responsibility for my actions. I have been too familiar with people. My sense of humor can be insensitive and off-putting…

In my mind, I’ve never crossed the line with anyone, but I didn’t realize the extent to which the line has been redrawn. There are generational and cultural shifts that I just didn’t fully appreciate. And I should have, no excuses.”

Andrew Cuomo – excerpts

So, in essence for him, it’s the culture’s fault. And the investigation, which is also in the hands of law enforcement. He is also still under investigation for the nursing home deaths during 2020.
