Sure are a lot of people saying someone did something illegal an noone has been peppersprayed, handcuffed, tased, arrested, or had their neck keeled on yet. I wonder why?

Could it be they are wrong?

Or, could it be we have one set of rules for persons of color minding their own business and another set of rules for criminal activities when publicly done by persons in office?

Gotta be one of the other.

Wonder which it is?

He needs to go. There's just going to be a steady drip of bad news about sexual harassment and fudging COVID-19 deaths for ages. Other bad things will be discovered along the way. He can't survive it.

The COVID daddy thirst is way too creepy.

Also, if anyone wonders how weak it will make New York if they force out Cuomo, bear in mind that in 2008, New York forced its governor to resign over a sex scandal. The new governor also got caught in a sex scandal which made him lose the primary, & then the next governor after both those Democratic governors had their careers torched in sex scandals won election three times & had weird thirsty nerds call him "irreplaceable," "literally born to be governor," & "COVID Daddy."

Sorry, Paterson's scandal wasn't a sex scandal. He covered for a staffer in a domestic abuse case by using state troopers to intimidate a witness.

Paterson never got as far as a primary. He was told to be a placeholder for Cuomo, and the moment he started murmuring about a run in 2010, he got thrown under the bus. Even Obama leaned on Paterson. Cuomo wound up unopposed for the nomination.

Spitzer's scandal was a money scandal. If a little side action was the only issue, we'd never have heard about it. Loads of guys go to Albany expecting to have a girlfriend up there that the wife back home knows nothing about. Long as you try to be discreet and don't smack anybody around, there's a "gentlemen's" no-snitching agreement. You'll find this in lots of state capitols. Long as you keep your wife and your girlfriend three counties apart, everything's cool.

Spitzer had to be an idiot, though. He was the one guy in Albany paying for sex with traceable money instead of untraceable patronage sinecures.

Yep. While I don't have any reason to doubt Cuomo's accusers, I would not be surprised to find out the accusations coming out when they did are related to Albany establishment's desire to get rid of Cuomo.

(& no, he won't be replaced by Tom Reed)

Franken never got any investigation into the allegations against him, despite the fact that prior to stepping down, he said he'd submit himself to such. Cuomo actually is being investigated.

I'm thinking a pineapple and thinly-sliced hotdog pizza on a ketchup-based sauce would be amazing with some jalapenos and roasted garlic.

Thick-crust, of course, and maybe some roasted almond slivers on top.

And basil.

I was on Cuomo's side in his battle against Trump last year. That was like a Jaeger vs. Kaiju situation. Obviously you have to root for the Jaeger in that situation. But the mass-murder by negligence of the elderly was bad enough. The coverup was worse. Getting handsy with a random girl at a wedding is an entirely different kind of abhorrent. There have been some massive errors in judgment on his part, and I wouldn't miss him if he resigned. This guy was an Attorney General for New York, and he behaved like a common frat boy. But Cuomo shouldn't face scrutiny alone. There are governors across this country who should be under the spotlight too for their bullshiat during the pandemic. The Governors of Florida, Texas, and Missouri are all morons. All of them, and their misdeeds should be laid out for all to see as well. I'm sure there are more to speak of, and I wouldn't mind if there was a national house cleaning of political ineptitude.

4 anonymous claims from an event that never happened, and a crazy person trying to fish for her 15 minutes of relevance, should not be treated as valid accusations.

To be fair, Franken wanted an investigation, and he was denied one. They simply demanded his resignation, and he had hours to decide whether to give it or be ousted. That seems ... not entirely fair.

Funny how Cuomo wasn't given the same abrupt ultimatum. I wonder what's different about them.

Well, it's like I always say, basically everyone who runs for office is a narcissist. You have to be a narcissist to think that many people care about your opinion or will vote for you. That's true from high school class President all the way up to president of the United States. And it's why I quit politics despite being passionate about the issues.

/although sometimes I think of returning to be a lobbyist, which is sad that they are the less scummy group.

It's pretty much all over for him except for the crying.  He's just drawing it out because he seems to think the investigators will somehow exonerate him.  I can't imagine they will unless he thinks he can bribe or blackmail them.  Which will only compound his problems.

//If Mario Cuomo was alive, he would have slapped him and told him he was done NOW.
