This time, it’s Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, who wasn’t exactly in the best of shape politically to start with—you know, all those dead nursing home residents and a his cover-up and everything.
But we have seen how this usually plays out, have we not? Keith Ellison, formerly co-chair of the DNC, was accused of abuse by two exes, but managed to get elected Attorney General of Minnesota. Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax also has been accused of sexual assault by two women, one claiming rape. Fairfax swears the encounters were consensual, and maybe they were…but then that’s what they always say, isn’t it? Then, of course, there is Joe Biden, whose former staff member accusing him of rape didn’t stop the vast majority of American women, those progressive, feminist warriors, from voting for him.
Lindsey Boylan, a former aide to Cuomo, came forward with detailed allegations of sexual assault and harassment against the governor yesterday, adding to the accusation she had made last December. Boylan accused Cuomo of kissing her on the lips and asking her to “play strip poker” on a plane ride on his official jet. “Governor Andrew Cuomo has created a culture within his administration where sexual harassment and bullying is so pervasive that it is not only condoned but expected. His inappropriate behavior toward women was an affirmation that he liked you, that you must be doing something right,” Boylan wrote. “He used intimidation to silence his critics. And if you dared to speak up, you would face consequences.”
I suppose she thought Cuomo’s force field would be down now that he was no longer the hero of the pandemic. Wrong! The three left-biased broadcast networks ABC, CBS and NBC did not even mention Boylan’s accusations last night. Neither did CNN and MSNBC, Newsbusters reported. That unreliable, biased, conspiracy-theory obsessed other network, Fox News, did report Boylan’s accusation, so the AUC narrative can be that the story is another conservative delusion.
Surprisingly, the partisan and hypocritical TIME’s Up Foundation has demanded an official probe, its president saying,“Allegations of inappropriate behavior in any workplace are deeply troubling and should be addressed.We call on the Cuomo administration to conduct a full and independent investigation into these claims immediately.”
They should be addressed, but the accusation against Biden was different, somehow. Time’s Up looked the other way.
The timely demand by Time’s Up was joined by actress/activist Rose McGowan, who is one of the few activists who has been consistent and has shown integrity, and, hilariously, NYC Mayor de Blasio, who delegitimizes any cause or position he supports by being associated with it.
As for me, I’m obviously a romantic, gullible fool. I keep thinking that eventually there will be a tipping point, and women will eventually refuse to let the Democratic Party get away with this.
What’s the matter with me?
