Things just keep getting worse for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
First he had the COVID nursing home scandal. Then a former aide accused him of sexual harassment.
Now a second woman has come forth with accusations. How much more will it take for him to step down?
FOX News reports:
NY Gov. Cuomo accused of sexual harassment for 2nd time
A second former aide to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has come forward with allegations of sexual harassment, which came just days after his first accuser made her claims public.
Charlotte Bennett, who is described by The New York Times as “an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Cuomo administration until she left in November,” alleges that Cuomo “asked her questions about her sex life, whether she was monogamous in her relationships and if she had ever had sex with older men.”
The 25-year-old staffer described to the Times an incident that took place in June when she was “alone” with the 63-year-old governor in his State Capitol office. According to the report, he allegedly asked her if she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships and that he was open to having relationships with women in their 20s, which were noted by the Times as “comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.”
While Bennett alleges that Cuomo never tried touching her, the governor’s “message” during that exchange was “unmistakable to her.”
This is not good.
.@NYGovCuomo, you are a monster, and it is time for you to go. Now.

Andrew Cuomo is a coward who has abused his position of power. Abuse feeds in the dark. Bravery is one heck of a floodlight.

Andrew Cuomo needs to be investigated immediately.
If he were a Republican, he would be crucified by the media and forced to resign.
