At this rate he's only going to win his next election by a very large margin rather then a laughably large one.

What a fool. If he hadn't asked permission first, he could be well on his way to president by now.

He needs to go now. Enough.

You'd think the Covid data manipulation would have been sufficient, but I guess that's just not sensational enough to keep people outraged?  Not that this isn't bad enough on its own, but it shouldn't have even gotten to this point.

He's likely secured himself as Governor for the remainder of his term, but if he thinks he's going for a 4th term, ha, he's not. That ship has sailed. He's just trying to maintain his term at this point, re-election and higher office is out of the cards now

I know nothing about his private life, but none of this seems surprising - he comes across as exactly like that sort of character.

This situation seems very different to the others though: they seem to be pure abuses of power in the workplace... this one is the creepy old drunk guy at a wedding that all of us have experienced. One's illegal, one's just a grotesque part of life. Showing a pattern though, that makes it important.

Al Franken already happened.  He went from one of the most likely prospects for president in 2020 to a pariah over what was turned to be a wholly fabricated scandal.

Cuomo was never going to go anywhere after New York governor.  He was a well known piece of shiat before COVID, and the only redemption value he had was by direct comparison to Donald Trump.  That he is guilty of the same COVID data manipulation as DeSantis, and a sexual harassing sleaze, is just reminding us all of why he was considered a piece of shiat before the pandemic turned the world on its head.

NY AG's office has a lot of people and staff, they can multitask.

Plus, for the governor, technically their boss, it would probably have to be an outside prosecutor.

I'm fine with that.

Eliot Spitzer, another fine New Yorker, narrowly beats out Rudy because Rudy was always a fake product of timing. Cuomo still has a ways to go to top his own state.

Yeeh, this is weird.

The nursing home thing is weird because the death were recorded as deaths. They hadn't gone unnoticed, or uncounted, or even hidden. Nobody had a plan for Covid and nobody was coordinating offices when Cuomo's office was trying to sort out how to code the data.

So, overall, what is the motivation for getting the Democratic Party out of the governor's seat so the GOP can appoint the New York AG?

2021-03-02 1:53:02 AM  
Also, fark you, Americans. You knew whow bad your nursing homes are. You all knew. It is a running gag in your comedies to shiat on old people and the role of nursing homes. It's common farking knowldge you choose to kill your neighbours and relatives on a normal day, through neglect.

Now a pandeic shows up, and you want to crucify Cuomo? He didn't cover up the deaths. And he did nothing to cover up the obvious - that nursing homes are criminally neglectful. How could he? You all find it gratifyingly funny.

Your indignation at him is hypocriusy of Mitch McConnell levels. That is what systemic means by the way - that it's millions of you, not just Cuomo, who are responsible for the failure. It's a systemic failure that you all promoted as funny and you laugh gleefully at your tv shows and stand up comedy about it.

You are really bad people on the inside. Stop crucifying Cuomo for it

You expect me to go fix the nursing home situation? Me, and not, say, the Governor of the state of New York?
No, jackass, our elected leaders are supposed to enforce existing regulations and make sure the homes take care of the people who live there.

You know why the nursing homes are so bad?
Nursing homes are a powerful lobby. They pay people like Cuomo to overlook the problems. They pay legislators and governors to look elsewhere while they bleed people dry.

Why do you think McConnell was pushing so damn hard for the gross negligence requirement for COVID deaths? The nursing homes paid him. Don't try to shift the blame here to me. Go fark yourself. This is systemic.

I just don't think we can blame old Italy for this. He didn't know her. She's not a relative. My sicilian great uncle does go around kissing all of us (cheeks not lips but he kisses his sons on the lips in I swear a not creepy way),  but even drunk he wouldn't treat a strange girl like that. Especially not knowing you're the damn governor.   Just like creepy ass Al Franken, he needs to go.

I've been suspect of Cuomo after the Patterson bullshiat. As you may recall the blind lieutenant governor took over after Spitzer. He was just supposed to be a placeholder until the heir of the throne Cuomo could take over. As soon as Patterson started making some noise about staying on, 'scandals' about his staff started appearing. One being charges of harassment. Always assumed Cuomo was putting pressure on Patterson (who he had nothing on) by threatening to burn his staff.

Ironic he's being burned by his own similar scandal.

Honestly, I'll agree with this. Baker also faced some serious shiat about the Vet homes, then the investigation found a lot of the problem had resulted from management. The Pandemic revealed a lot of problems with our old people care. Governors shouldn't be crucified for it, but once this is over, they shouldn't sweep this shiat under the rug again.
