Should NY Governor Andrew Cuomo Step Down?

A political scandal is nothing new. It is as old as humanity itself. The question is, when does it get to the point in which the politician is unable to do his or her job?

Last year, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo became a symbol of how to deal with Covid-19. For months on end, he gave a daily televised press conference going over the most recent numbers of NYers who were hospitalized and/or killed by the virus.

Then the nursing home scandal erupted and his image became tarnished.

Last week, the Governor was accused of sexual harassment by several female employees.

If I am to be perfectly honest, I would have him step down. Though he gets major points for being open and honest about the Covid stats, that cannot wash away the both the fudging of the nursing home facts and these new allegations.

The fact is that sexual assault and sexual harassment (especially in the workplace) is still far too common. The only way we can stop it once and for all is to make examples of those who have been found guilty of committing such acts. If it becomes clear that the punishment is not worth the brief pleasure the harasser gets, then maybe we finally put it in the rear view mirror.

New Randy Rainbow Video-ANDY! – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody

Every story, regardless of genre or format has two basic narrative elements: the hero and the villain.

As the coronavirus continues on it’s path of destruction across the United States and across the world, heroes and villains have started to emerge from within the headlines.

The villain, I think many would argue, is you know who. His inability to lead and his ego has created a nightmare that was thoroughly preventable. The hero, as I see it New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. From the get go, Governor Cuomo has been steadfast, honest and the leader that this state and the nation desperately needs.

Randy Rainbow’s latest video was released this evening. Titled ANDY! – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody, the video is a love letter to the Governor as only Randy Rainbow could have written.

Based on the song Sandy from the musical Grease, this song is pure joy and the momentary escape that we are all searching for.

Thank you, Randy, for giving us another reason to smile and laugh. It may just be enough to get us through this horrible time.
