Charlotte, NC — I take sexual assault claims seriously. In fact, I take them more seriously than Vice President Kamala Harris and Democratic members of Congress do. Despite their incessant whining about the weak allegations against Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh, their silence on the serious allegations against Andrew Cuomo is deafening!
While the Democrats in Congress and The White House remain silent, the allegations against Andrew Cuomo continue to mount. If Governor (for now) Andrew Cuomo had a conscience, he waived bye-bye to it a long time ago as it seems highly unlike this putz won’t resign. Essentially, he’s attempting to pull a rabbit out of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s KKK hooded daring New York legislators to impeach him. The good news is it sounds they finally might be taking him up on it.
The New York State Assembly isn’t waiting on him to make the first move. They have taken the first steps toward impeaching Cuomo.
The Assembly has officially opened an investigation that accompanies with it full subpoena power. According to Democratic assemblyman Ron Kim, this is the first step one would need in order to pursue impeachment against Governor ‘Handsy.’ Kim has alleged that he was threatened by Cuomo for asking questions then talking to the media about the nursing home scandal that has gotten far too little coverage in the media compared to these sexual assault allegations.
A majority of state legislators, 121 people including 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans, as well Lurch de Blasio. The failure that is New York City Mayor de Blasio, has been a long-time foe of Governor Cuomo and has called on him to resign.
An aide to Cuomo has come forward alleging an actual sexual assault was committed against her by the governor within the past year. She claims that he groped her by sliding his hands under her shirt at the Governor’s residence when he asked her there for work-related reasons. The Albany police are now looking into this allegation. Cuomo has denied it and called it “gut-wrenching.”
It appears the judiciary committee in the NY Assembly will look into the allegations equipped with that subpoena power. Further, Cuomo is now being investigated by the Albany Police, the New York Attorney General’s office, as well as the FBI.
Assemblyman Kim said he believes they had enough already to move to impeach the Governor. However, some Republicans in the Assembly are saying this step isn’t strong enough given the circumstances and claim this is an effort just to buy time. The GOP members wanted to go straight to impeachment procedures. Speaker Carl Heastie released a statement yesterday saying that an impeachment investigation had commenced.
The state Assembly has 150 members. It could convene an impeachment trial against Cuomo with a simple majority vote. Until the new allegations surfaced, most of its members appeared to be leaning against trying to convene an impeachment or demanding Cuomo’s resignation until the attorney general’s investigation was complete.
The state Senate, which would join with members of the state’s top appeals court to hold an impeachment trial, has 63 members.
What’s astounding and equally infuriating is that it’s the sexual harassment allegations that have moved this forward and not the thousands of nursing home deaths. Should they get to the point of removing Cuomo, they must also hold him accountable for these murders, the subsequent cover-ups, and threats. This must be in addition to the sexual harassment/assault allegations.
Simply removing the man from his office isn’t enough! They must pursue all of these claims wherever they may go. No one knows if others will be implicated in the nursing home scandal but, regardless of that possibility, this must also be adjudicated, too. Sexual assault is a serious crime but so is murder!
If you used the same logic and justification as Congress did in pursuit in the multiple impeachment trials against former president Donald Trump, Andrew Cuomo should be removed from office and tried! He willfully and knowingly instructed people to hide, falsify, and lie about the deaths in New York nursing homes. This was calculated and intentional.
