Thoroughly investigate the charges. No one regardless of status should be allowed to power harass in any way. Long passed time for the powerful to be held accountable for abusing their positions.

Clinton, Weinstein, Biden, Cuomo... the list is endless.

All powerful Democrats and all facing a litany of sexual assault accusations.

Political power does not equate to entitlement to women's bodies.

Love how you conveniently left out the litany of sexual assault allegations against republicans.

@Burning Bush... you failed to mention the very words that Donald Trump said about “ Grabbing them by the p****! And the numerous sexual harassment, sexual abuse and rape cases against him! Don’t throw stones at others house when you live in a glass house!

I'm an advocate of the Pence rule.

Had Cuomo followed that rule, he wouldn't be in this situation.

Pence rule? Is that the one that if someone doesn't do what Trump tells them to do Trump's supporters will bring nooses and a gallows to hang them?

Kissing somebody suddenly (as with the first accuser) isn't too cool, but asking somebody what they think about dating older men (as with the second accuser) sounds more like an man hitting on somebody.

Man: What do you think of dating older men??

\Woman: Well, I never! How dare you!

If this becomes sexual harassment, then things might be going just a tad too far.

Sounds like Cuomo needs to step down.

Let’s see if any substance to these allegations. If proven, will be a big fall from grace for him. He has been lion used thru the virus and took every opportunity to self promote. Will also likely be a blow to his little brothers career.

As in all cases like this, need to investigate and see both sides. Foolish to blame or dismiss either party before doing so.

Cuomo has been treated with kid gloves even though we’ve known since December of his assault on Boylan. He was covered for as long as possible but the Left has boxed themselves in with #MeToo. Any more women coming out and it’s game over. Cuomo is expendable because he is the Governor of a reliably Dem state. But he will not go down without a fight and a lot of excuse making from the Left. The sad thing is that a public official is much more likely to lose their job for sexual harassment than for a decision they made resulting in 15K deaths.

No- it’s the rule where if a man does everything he possibly can to be above reproach he gets branded a Victorian era anachronism who is trying to prevent women from obtaining equal rights. As if doing everything possible to demonstrate that he has no intention to threaten a woman in the workplace is a bad thing.

Pence is a zero integrity lapdog. Holding him up as a symbol of virtue displays a deeply flawed character.

Let's see if the charges stick. Watch his reaction, just like Kavanaugh's.

Of course not all allegations are true. I knew the butt-slapping allegations on George Bush wouldn't fly. However, 99% of such allegations are real.

And if they ain't, what's Cuomo trying to hide?

Looks like he is being me-tooed. While the much bigger crime is his handling of the Corona situation in the nursing homes, and lying about it. Apparently, now that the election is over, the media does not need to run cover for the guy any more.

Was his wilful abandonment of people in Indiana to an AIDs epidemic part of his attempts to be "above reproach"?

As if doing everything possible to demonstrate that he has no intention to threaten a woman in the workplace is a bad thing.

So, do you agree with Pence (and, of course, religious fundamentalists of all stripes) that men cannot be left alone with women, because their animal lusts will inevitably overwhelm them?

If that's true, it sounds bad. Men — all men — probably shouldn't be allowed in politics if they can't control themselves.

Looks like he is being me-tooed. 

Good. If he's abused his position (which it increasingly seems he has) he should be out of office, and have to answer for any crimes he committed in a court of law.

The difference between Democrats and Republicans is that if the allegations against Gov. Cuomo are verified, he will lose the support of the Democratic Party and Democratic voters. In the Republican Party, sexual predators are elected to the presidency.
