Things are finally getting real for New York’s thug Governor. – In the world of the American left, no story is considered to be real until it is carried by the New York Times. Yes, that really is the demented little world your leftwing friends live in. So long as the Times is ignoring any story – like Hunter Biden’s laptop, for example – liberals, in their demented minds, believe that gives them a pass on believing it’s real.
This is why your leftwing friends still don’t acknowledge the unarguable fact that high officials in the Obama/Biden administration – including Obama and Biden themselves – attempted to fix the 2016 election and ran a slow-rolling coup d’etat on American soil for three long years. It’s madness, but it’s how they justify their studious ignorance on issue after issue.
This rule of leftist life has certainly been at play in the controversies surrounding Gov. Cuomo, as a mountain of evidence has come to light that his COVID response edicts caused the deaths of thousands of the state’s senior citizens in nursing homes and that he and his toadies worked to cover up the scale of that issue. Cuomo has also been dogged by allegations of serial sexual harassment, bullying and other gross misconduct in office over the course of his long and sordid time in office, the most recent being a long, detailed essay of his behavior authored by a former top assistant, Lindsey Boylan, which I wrote about four days ago.
That story broke just a week or so after a New York Democrat legislator, Ron Kim, alleged that Cuomo had threatened to “destroy” him if he didn’t go along with the administration’s ongoing efforts to cover up the number of nursing home deaths.
So long as the fake newspaper of record refused to cover these scandals in any real detail, Cuomo has felt safe and secure in continuing his lifelong pattern of behavior, and your leftwing friends have felt fully justified in responding by simply parroting the excuse-making talking points they heard an hour earlier from some talking head on The View. You all know that’s what they do, right?
But now that game could be coming to an end, after this happened on Saturday:
NYT: Gov Cuomo Is Accused of Sexual Harassment by a 2nd Former Aide https://t.co/MZ8O3UBOof
— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) February 27, 2021
That’s right: Suddenly, the Times has decided to actually give some coverage to the sexual harassment story after years of ignoring it on behalf of Cuomo. Not only that, but someone at CNN gave Fake Jake Tapper permission to actually tweet about it. You can practically hear the cries of “Oh, the humanity!” coming from the Governor’s mansion in Albany.
Here’s an excerpt from that story:
ALBANY, N.Y. — A second former aide to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is accusing him of sexual harassment, saying that he asked her questions about her sex life, whether she was monogamous in her relationships and if she had ever had sex with older men.
The aide, Charlotte Bennett, who was an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Cuomo administration until she left in November, told The New York Times that the governor had harassed her late last spring, during the height of the state’s fight against the coronavirus.
Ms. Bennett, 25, said the most unsettling episode occurred on June 5, when she was alone with Mr. Cuomo in his State Capitol office. In a series of interviews this week, she said the governor had asked her numerous questions about her personal life, including whether she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, and had said that he was open to relationships with women in their 20s — comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.
Mr. Cuomo said in a statement to The Times on Saturday that he believed he had been acting as a mentor and had “never made advances toward Ms. Bennett, nor did I ever intend to act in any way that was inappropriate.” He said he had requested an independent review of the matter and asked that New Yorkers await the findings “before making any judgments.”
Ms. Bennett said that during the June encounter, the governor, 63, also complained to her about being lonely during the pandemic, mentioning that he “can’t even hug anyone,” before turning the focus to Ms. Bennett. She said that Mr. Cuomo asked her, “Who did I last hug?”
Ms. Bennett said she had tried to dodge the question by responding that she missed hugging her parents. “And he was, like, ‘No, I mean like really hugged somebody?’” she said.
Mr. Cuomo never tried to touch her, Ms. Bennett said, but the message of the entire episode was unmistakable to her.
“I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Ms. Bennett said. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.”
Ms. Bennett said she had disclosed the interaction with Mr. Cuomo to his chief of staff, Jill DesRosiers, less than a week later and was transferred to another job, as a health policy adviser, with an office on the opposite side of the Capitol, soon after that.Ms. Bennett said she had also given a lengthy statement to a special counsel to the governor, Judith Mogul, toward the end of June.
Time to “circle back” to your leftwing friends and see whose talking points they’re parroting today, as their hero’s carefully-crafted world continues to slowly fall apart.
That is all.
