  1. I am against the harassments if they are true, but he did a good job as governor and should not resign

    • @Man Animal Did I mess something, I didn’t know Trump got reelected. I know he was cheated on election.

    • Driven,
      No. You did not “mess” something. tRump did not get re-elected. But to make an argument that I robbed a bank bc other people do it is a false argument. You would be laughed of a debate stage.

    • @DR IVEN Nah, that’s just how your crazy comprehends anyone that’s pro-choice.

    • I’m just curious if anyone remembers when republicans were willing to sacrifice the elderly for trump rallies?

    Let the investigation have its place. Why should he resign early when it’s in motion already.

    • @Leigh Murphy ah, hes not a deviant. Dont lie, when was the last time you flirted? Yesterday wasnt it?

    • Why do you hate old people and women?

      New York Times , March 16, 2021 :
      NY Governor Cuomo ( D) helped draft letter disparaging his first sexual harassment accuser: report

      Soon after the first woman accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment last December, the governor and his close associates worked to draft a letter attacking the former aide’s credibility, a new report said Tuesday.

      The letter, which was never released, disparaged Lindsey Boylan and accused her of coming forward for “political retribution,” according to a copy reviewed by The New York Times.

      Boylan, one of seven women to accuse Cuomo of inappropriate conduct, first made her claims in a series of Twitter posts — before sparking the sexual harassment scandal against the governor with more details in a post to the website Medium.

      In the days after Boylan’s tweets, at least one draft of the attack letter began circulating among allies to the governor’s current and former top aides, sources told the newspaper.

      The initial intention was to get former top statehouse staffers — with a focus on women — to sign onto the letter, the report said.

      One draft of the letter noted a campaign consultant to Boylan, who is now a Democratic candidate for Manhattan borough president, also worked for a Cuomo political enemy.

      The letter went on to say that Boylan was “supported by lawyers and financial backers of Donald Trump: an active opponent of the governor,” according to the Times.
      It concluded: “Weaponizing a claim of sexual harassment for personal political gain or to achieve notoriety cannot be tolerated. False claims demean the veracity of credible claims.”////.:::://.

    • Yahoo News 3/18/21- Breaking News : NY nursing home whistleblower: Cuomo’s order was ‘ridiculous and dangerous ‘

      New York nursing home administrator Michael Kraus tells Yahoo News that he warned state officials about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order requiring facilities to take in COVID-positive patients released from hospitals.

      A New York City nursing home director tells Yahoo News  that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order lastyear requiring such facilities to take in COVID-positive patients released from hospitals was “ridiculous” and that he warned state officials “we can’t be doing this.”

      Michael Kraus, the administrator of the Silver Lakes Specialized Care Center in Staten Island, said he immediately raised the alarm after first hearing about the March 25, 2020, order in a conference call with other directors, hospital leaders and state officials.  

      “I said that’s ridiculous. We can’t be doing this. It’s just not right to the residents,” Kraus told Fox News in an exclusive interview with correspondent Aishah Hasnie that aired Thursday on “America Reports.” ↕️3️⃣🔂3️⃣

    • NY Daily News-March 19, 2021 | 12:45pm: “Well, he [Cuomo]clearly jeopardize lives in his nursing home decision,” NYC Mayor de Blasio said.

      Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo, of risking New Yorkers’ lives to boost his popularity — and called him “a central part” in the state’s history of corruption.

      During his weekly interview on WNYC radio, de Blasio agreed when asked if he believed Cuomo would play “fast and loose with people’s lives” to improve his image.

      “Well, he clearly jeopardize lives in his nursing home decision,” de Blasio said.
      “Decisions were made that were dangerous to people’s health and well-being. Thousands of people were lost and the governor of the state had the audacity to cover up the information.”

      The Mayor added: “So, is he capable of making decisions that are that crass and that political and about his personal needs? 110 percent.”

      De Blasio also agreed when asked by host Brian Lehrer if he thought Cuomo’s actions came despite “knowing that it could be fatal for some people, because he was getting donations?”::::::://///::::,

    Yes Biden can and should stay on the sidelines of the Andrew Cuomo saga.

  4. Let the investigation take place and then call for the proper actions to be taken.

      NY Daily News: Governor Cuomo has come out against Cancel Culture as he defends against claims of forceable touching ( New York Penal Code § 130.52 ) and sexual harassment by 7 women former aides and a reporter . Cuomo believes that those calling for his resignation are promoting Cancel Culture. However he did call for Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court Justice, to drop out of consideration for the Court because Cuomo believed Kavanaugh accuser before she even testified before the Senate . Cuomo even demanded that Kavanaugh take a lie detector test as well. Additionally, Cuomo released a statement in 2018 which called for the resignation of then-Attorney General Eric Schneiderman over a magazine article’s sexual harassment claims — a demand now resurfacing amid his own sexual misconduct allegations.

    • Jason Wright,
      You need to go over you Facts.
      Miss Bennett and her lawyer just filed a 120 document supporting her harassment complaints including the formal complaint form that is in compliance with the no tolerance work place harassment law that Gov. Cuomo signed into law. Now through investigation by the NY attorney general it has been discover that Miss Bennett’s official complaint was buried by the Gov. administration and never properly investigated her claims.
      The the aid who alleges that in Dec 2020 that Gov Cuomo asked her to his private residence under the false pretense of a work related issue and assaulted her by groping her under her blouse, is very much cooperating with the NY attorney general with the aid of her lawyer.
      I guess you have a different definition of “cooperating.

    • @Joseph H *15,000 folks died in nursing homes and corrupt Cuomo lied about it.*

    I agree, have a thourough investigation first let the accusers prove their charges, give him his day in court,that’s our system

    • @Exiled New Yorker Luckily most normal americans don’t agree with criminalizing peoples thoughts. Maybe you can move to some 3rd world shithole and start your own female society, but then you know not even women would want to live there 🤣

      NYTimes
      By J. David Goodman and Danny HakimMarch 4, 2021 :
      “In a Nixonian way Cuomo Aides Rewrote Nursing Home Report to Hide Higher Death Toll
      The intervention was the earliest action yet known in an effort by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to conceal how many nursing home residents died in the pandemic.

      Both the Federal nd NY State investigations should bring to light the culpability of Governor Cuomo’s through his 56 day order to send COVID infected patients to the Nursing Homes resulting in 15,000 deaths instead of sending them to the 12 temporary hospitals built by the the Federal Government (FEMA) and the 1000 bed Navy Hospital Ship provided by the Trump Administration to NYC “

      @MITandMe NotIvy don’t have to convince me, I believe it, I m saying it has to be investigated then prosecuted, not like what the left did to Kavanaugh where there was no evidence and they tried to ruin a good man

    There is a due process which needs to go into motion why should he resigned before being proven guilty! Me-too strategy: all women should believed and I say they should not always, so many are liars after money!

      @Michael DiTraglia Last time I check my bank account I got money from Biden. I dont consider that a bad thing.

      @Glen Villanueva So, to all you Democrats, you are quite literally saying that you getting given money for nothing is more important than innocent people getting killed and assaulted by Cuomo and Biden. Good job proving my point about the Democrat party being the worst thing to happen to the human race.

  8. I care a lot more about the nursing home deaths, than the hurt feelings scandals.

  9. I thought it used to be innocent till proven guilty…

  10. I agree with him staying until investigation ends there’s no doubt he has alot of enemies. I would also like to comment on moving people into nursing homes as I understand it that is protocol for overflow at hospitals, I could be wrong. Although there was ship sitting that he didn’t utilize, if it was military I don’t think a governor has the authority to have people board. On Jan6th calls for the national guard to be sent went unanswered. I would not be surprised to find that maybe calls for authorization to board went unanswered as well, given the relationship between him and the selfish moron in the WH.

  11. He should let the voters decide.

  12. People who say Cuomo should resign are laughable. When EVERYONE turned a blind eye to the infractions of Trump and other Republican elected officials. Why is it that Democratic elected officials are the only officials that should resign? Democrats calling for his resignation are looking for brownie points for their own political gain.

  16. No, why should he resign…accusations from woman that want they’re 15 minutes of fame.

  17. His accusers don’t want his resignation, just the money from his recent celebrity book deal. Resigning doesn’t do them any good, compared to cash.

  18. We love you Cuomo! And nobody should be removed from office during a global pandemic due to allegations and politics

  19. None of which has to do with the elephant in the room, that is *thousands of elderly, dead.* But, ORANGE MAN BAD

  20. brilliantly explained, ty all. wait for the results of the investigations, if guilty then he should resign.
