Cry Those Crocodile Tears, Governor Cuomo

Rape, sexual harassment, and sexual assault is nothing new. It has been, unfortunately, part of the human experience. Thankfully, we are starting to grapple with this hideous event and persecute those who undertake such vile acts.

This morning, it was announced the sexual harassment allegations against New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo are more than rumor. He harassed 11 women, nine of who were employed by the state. Though he predictably denies it, the facts are too hard to ignore.

Some might say that this is payback, after the way he played political Ping-Pong with you know who over Covid-19.. But the truth is what he did is not limited to only elected public officials. It happens in all strata’s of our culture. The only way to route it out for good is to publicly and legally shame those have used their power for less than professional or honorable means.

If I could ask him one question, it would be the following: if one of his daughters came home from work and told their father of similar experiences, how would he respond? Would he downplay it? Or would he take his proverbial shotgun (as I would hope any good parent would do), and teach this person a lesson they will never forget?

Governor Cuomo has two options. He can either step down or be impeached. Either way, he has to go. And no matter how many crocodile tears he cries, his legacy will never be the same.

Thank You, Governor Cuomo

It has been said that when the sh*t hits the fan, one’s inability or ability to lead (especially in the corridors of power) is revealed.

While you know who and the Federal government have been wishy-washy in their response, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been the opposite.

Governor Cuomo is the political leader that we need right now, especially given the exploding number of cases in New York State and New York City. He is not looking out for himself (unlike you know who) and knows exactly what needs to be done. His ability to advocate for the residents of this state is refreshing and to be honest, absolutely f*cking necessary.

Given the severity of the need for PPEs and other life-saving equipment, you know who should not be expecting any Governor to kiss up to him. He and his administration should automatically be working hand in glove with the state and local governments.

But, given the child-like maturity of the man we call President, I don’t expect anything less.

To everyone out there, stay safe, stay home (if you can) and please wash your hands.
