 But he said he had teased people about their personal lives in an attempt to be “playful.”

Mr. Cuomo is about to find out that in the post Metoo woke world, "playful" equates to sexual assault.

Should've followed the Pence Rule and kept everything in sight, above board and professional at all times.

The vultures are circling already. And rightly so. He was so full of himself and so has far to fall. Amazing that this seems to be getting more airtime than his misconduct surrounding nursing homes. But I guess this is likely easier to prove and more in line with the current zeitgeist

The difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Democrats (sometimes belatedly) call out bad actors. Republicans call the accusers bad names and besmirch their character.

Looks like tickets for him. No bad thing given the hubris and self promotion that has been his trademark while he has actually governed atrociously.

Like many another ensconced in his "high castle", Cuomo is about to find out that there can be consequences for skating on thin ice. It's tough to admit, but nevertheless true that many powerful male players (not to exclude "alpha" females) accustomed to privilege and pampering can rarely rein in their desires and forego any opportunity to flex their ego. Another problem is that their "victims" may not always be ignorant of their boss's Achilles heel or chink in their armor. It may all be in the game, but there's no denying - it's rough!

It's good to see democrats asking for an enquiry into the allegations.

Sexual harassment is not permissible whatever your affiliation .

Unfortunately for most of the GOP, morality has disappeared like the Dodo.

A majority of the speakers at the CPAC had serious accusations against them and the GOP takes it as a badge of honor.

Or the donald rule, take it as a badge of honor.

Apparently the same happens in Russia, the rising stars have serious allegations against them.

On a slightly different, but relate note. Chris Cuomo broke one of the basic rules of Journalism 101 - Don't interview family or close friends. I saw the interviews and yes, they were "fun", but how does Chris look now? CNN is a good news network and other journalists there (Including Jake Tapper and Kate Baldwin) are dealing with the issue forth-rightly, but all-in-all, it's not a good look for anyone involved. Hopefully the network learns from this episode.

So you had to throw that in because of the lack of Trump articles that you are missing in today's news. Cuomo is a messed up individual and these sexual allegations are nothing compared to what he did to nursing home patients.

This is bizarre. Cuomo doesn't deserve to be investigated and likely made to resign because he's full of himself.

He deserves to be investigated and likely made to resign because he sexually assaulted women.

He allegedly sexually assaulted women. Until he’s adjudicated guilty in a court of law, these are merely allegations.

Allegedly, of course. My apologies.

Dems hold their own accountable and show respect for victims...

Quite the comparison to how Trump and the Repubs treat the 26 women who accuse him of sexual harassment and assault...

"Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign," the Republican presidential nominee said during a 2016 rally. "Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over."

You can't be selective in investigating sexual assault, everyone needs to be investigated regardless of their political affiliation.

The investigations should show whether or how much messed up he is. Similarly anyone else accused of assault/harassment and negligence resulting in 500,000 plus deaths should be investigated. Even if this individual has already been kicked out by the voters , criminal behavior doesn't have a term!!!!

we can't play double standards here. If Cuomo harassed those employees, he should quit. Period. On the other hand, what about that 'other guy' who talks lustfully about his daughter and brags about spying on and assaulting women and has a bad habit of body-shaming them openly? We can't let that be ignored, no matter who is it.

Haha, he's one of yours, Libs, you get to own this. It's always fun when the Left starts eating its own.

Very childish.

If he’s guilty, punish him. Isn’t that nice and grown up?

How interesting that you are more concerned about "owning the libs" than about discovering the truth and making sure that actions are taken. I would say that says a lot about you.

No, they were asking that Cuomo be investigated for a very long time, know it's hard for Dems to go through this, but better late than never.

Yes, alleged accusations.....

I would not take into consideration the fact that Cuomo is a Democrat , and will take his accusers seriously.

Unlike the GOP bigots who will emphasize on 'Accused' even though their king was caught on tape admitting to assault .

'alleged' not accused.

It's a funny standard when someone who has admitted to assault, is still allegedly accused but everyone is guilty without any proof.

The CPAC had quite a few of these beauties, Cawthorn is not only a liar, he is also a predator with 160 of his fellow students signing a letter asking for investigations.

Yet he was given prominence on the bigot show, wonder why?
