Finally!

I think many have been waiting for this for far too long.

Thank God. Now impeach him anyway so that he can never hold state office again.

11 ( +19 / -8 )

Gov Cuomo resigned because his party wasn't tolerating his conduct. Biden and national Dems called on him to resign. NY State Dems were about to impeach him.

The reason Republicans don’t resign for similar or worse allegations is because their party tolerates it. Simple as that.

-4 ( +18 / -22 )

Republicans exulted in Cuomo's departure but still urged impeachment, which could prevent him from running for office again. “This resignation is simply an attempt to avoid real accountability,” state GOP chair Nick Langworthy said.

I really couldn’t agree more. This is just Andrew hanging out in the tall grass until the time is right. Impeach him and send him to oblivion.

-1 ( +9 / -10 )

Adios, loser.

7 ( +18 / -11 )

It only took his entire party telling him to leave, but at least he did.

17 ( +19 / -2 )

But... How could this be? Someone on this very board repeatedly told us Cuomo would never ever resign! He clearly said: "they’re not going to push this man out, he’s not going anywhere." and then again, "This guy is not going anywhere."

Could he be that... he was completely wrong?!?

Indisputable. Republicans and “conservatives” constantly scream, “Innocent until proven guilty!” when it’s one of theirs, even when there are piles and piles of evidence. These same people scream, “He has to go!” and then complain about events from over 20 years ago when it’s a democrat.

Wobot

Same pattern with the UK's Matt Hancock... kill a load of people (i.e. sending elderly covid patients into care homes) then lose their job over sexual misconduct...

Matt Hancock did not commit sexual misconduct. He started an affair and was forced to resign. Can't be compared with Gov Cuomo.

Good riddance.

when will that investigation get started?

As soon Tara Read a.) Finds the complaint she said she filed and b.) remembers if she filed a complaint at all.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

YES, he almost certainly was inappropriate sexually with people around him. BUT, so, almost certainly, was almost every American politician of his generation. Their bloated egos require it. What he did wrong was take on and punish some major financial Corporations such as Amex and US Bank and their corrupt leaderships who were actively defrauding their customers when he was NYAG and they NEVER forget. Again, every one of these kinds of people have SECRETS but, play along and those secrets stay more or less secret, at least from the 'people'. It's how psychopaths play the game of 'Power' such as the mole Lewinski if you haven't read the details of that farce and a push to attack Iran "and your problem might just go away". He didn't and a year later an uncleaned dress appears on the U.S. stage. And, truly, no good deed goes unpunished.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

Don't kid yourself. It's all political. He didn't resign because he has remorse. His resignation speech was classic cuomo, ; self serving.

This was done for electoral votes. The political left know he is unreelectable so they need to replace him because they don't want to lose ny.

Additionally, after this political left scumbag resigns nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing will come of these sexual misconduct allegations/investigations.

It will soon be forgotten.

Have you forgotten who is president?

So people who aren't in office anymore should get a pass for any wrongdoing?! That's a very strange sense of justice and accountability you got there. "Hey guys, no need for those silly Nuremberg trials, the nazi army has already been disbanded! They're not in power anymore!"

This preoccupation with a man who has no power anymore is weird. 

Yeah I wonder why you brought up Clinton too, he hasn't been president since 2001.

Cuomo said in his mind he didn’t cross a line. He also said he didn’t know to what extent a line had actually been crossed. He remained defiant and said he’s innocent although he recognizes that some women were offended—a non-apology in other words. The common theme among Cuomo and the democrats is that what’s in their minds doesn’t correspond with reality on the ground. Another reason I won’t be voting democrat in 2022.

1 ( +7 / -6 )

From everything I have read, it appears very politically and large corporately motivated. He is a hugger and a kisser, and if you know families with Italian decent from New York, you would understand.

Besides, innocent until proven guilty.

-3 ( +4 / -7 )

@Noidall

So, lemme get this straight. You’re happy Cuomo is gone…yet you’re lumping dems in with him. Despite the fact that the investigation was led by a Democrat. Despite the fact that the Democratic President and all the democratic congresspeople from NY demanded his resignation. Despite the fact that the Democrat-controlled state legislature was pushing to impeach him if he didn’t resign and many still plan to impeach him anyway.

IDK, man. If you want sexual deviants to be pushed out of politics, it seems like voting for the Dems is gonna be a lot more effective. I mean, compare the Dems’ response to Cuomo to the Pubs’ response to Roy Moore, Matt Gaetz, and (shock of all shocks) Donald Trump.

The democrats whining: "Impeach republican sex abusers, good riddance !!...."

I thought he (is) looks like a good man, but he is really a bad guy.

So true. What wil happen to Cuomo will be nothing compared to what will happen to Beavis, or is that Butthead?

Interesting theory. That would explain why there are so many conservatives in these comments talking about believing all women.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

US politics is just ridiculous. All the parties and their followers do is rail against each other while the real problems facing the country never get addressed. And elites like this guy get a pass. Resignation is too good for him given his Covid actions and sheer hubris taking huge money for a book about how great he is. The political class in the US are a disgrace.

I don't like people losing their jobs and being forced to quite without proof or trial.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

Why so many of these cases ? And why so many of them in the US ? Is there any politician in the US that hasn't done some sort of sexual harassment ?

It is the AK47 of politics, it just works ! hire some investigators, find the girls around the person and then file a lawsuit. How do you defend against this ?

no seriously, it is so slippery, you go to roppongi you get drunk , you motorboat some poor girl and vuola you are now a sex offender and therefore you can't hold any public functions.

Integrity counts.

This is how you know that the Democratic party isn't a cult.

emphatically denied intentionally mistreating women

That's different from sexual harassment, which he didn't deny.

But where's the proof and the settlement? What we have now could easily be a political witch hunt and rather than fight it, he gave in. Guess that does speak to his character.

Amex is not a good customer to have. I have stories where they modified a 1 yr contract during negotiations late on Dec 24th without mentioning the modifications for one of their software suppliers. Amex refused to correct the contract. They got a good deal for 1 year, then never again.

If Cuomo were Republican he'd be sending out fundraising emails for 2024 telling people to save the country from the Deep State which is targeting him, then announcing a nationwide tour.

And he'd be doing well in straw polls.

Non-American here. Is it something about being the mayor of New York which jinxes people? If I'm not mistaken, Rudy Giuliani used to be the mayor and now he's a national joke.

Innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. If he's truly innocent he should fight his party and the media for his rights.

Wish that were true, but NYC is Democrat echo chamber and anyone that has lived in that city knows it. It’s dog eat dog and from the current AG to DeBlasio and other syncopates in the NYC communist assembly the women are not the reason to push for the ouster of Cuomo, the reason is, they want the power for themselves, all you have to do is look at the list of people including the soon to be acting governor and you will see her and the other applicant resumes are not all that impressive including Al Sharpton and these people are worse than Cuomo and that’s no endorsement of the man, he was beyond horrible, but at least he was smart and relatively (and to a limit) know some of the limits to government overreach. It’s not going to get better whoever now from this bunch steps into his shoes.

Cuomo still has to answer for his hideous practice of herding COVID patients into New York state nursing homes last year, leading to thousands of deaths -- a practice that he then tried to cover up.

For the sexual harassment, he's rightly out of office. But for the nursing home deaths, he should be out of free society. He should be in an orange jumpsuit.

By the way ... generally speaking, Republicans are accused of sexual harassment by political adversaries. In the cases of Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump, for instance, their accusers were women who opposed their politics.

Democrats are generally accused of sexual harassment by political allies. Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, Al Franken, and now Andrew Cuomo, just to name four ... all were credibly accused of sexual misbehavior by staffers who shared their political views.

That should speak loud volumes as to the doubtful nature of the former and the much more credible nature of the latter.

True, but it’s Dems that are hasty with getting rid of him.

when it’s one of theirs, even when there are piles and piles of evidence.

Yes, if it’s relative to the accused that is holding office and related in and around that timeframe.

These same people scream, “He has to go!” and then complain about events from over 20 years ago when it’s a democrat.

When you abuse your oath as commander in chief and abuse your authority by engaging in an inappropriate conduct with your female staff as the most powerful man on the planet, regardless of party affiliation there shouldn’t be a time limit to prosecute any individual that violates that oath, but you can and should apply that to any elected official, governor as well and this gem of a beaut should have his day in court. As bad as Cuomo is and he is, the man has the right and should face his accessors in an honest and legal manner. This should never be political.

You very conveniently forget the very many republicans who have been accused of sexually harrassing their own staff. From politicians in congress to the top brass at fox news, amongst many others.

Sexual harassment isn't partisan. It's not a "republican or democrat" thing. It's only a "power corrupts people" thing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_federal_political_sex_scandals_in_the_United_States

Al Franken wasn't accused of sexual misbehavior by any of his staffers. He was accused by a very republican newscaster.

great spin attempt by liberals trying to frame this as a good thing. their top guy showed "integrity" by resigning.....only after killing 10s of thousands of old people with COVID, getting millions for a book his staff wrote on taxpayer work hours and then groping/harassing nearly every woman within his reach.

How about not doing those things in the first place? thats a "good" thing.

The hysterical, hypocritical right are in full meltdown here. I suppose it makes a welcome change from meltdowns over vaccines or non-existent election fraud.

Anyway, Cuomo did the right thing in stepping down.

He was considered presidential material until this scandal broke - all of his own doing, and the Dems did right to rid themselves of him. Let that be a lesson to all males (especially English teachers in Japan): NEVER touch a female, particularly a student, subordinate or coworker, unless explicitly invited. I don't even shake hands unless one is proffered, and then I do that half male-female shake and end it quickly.

For what? You are too funny! Cuomo resigned because they were getting ready to impeach him and possibly convict him, he didn’t want that, all his friends in the Dem assembly bailed and couldn’t run away fast enough from this guy, he is now alone and a pariah. So he had no choice, but to resign.

For claiming he would never resign. You wrote it several times. That Cuomo would never resign because the "dems don't care" or whatever reason you cooked up. But you were completely wrong. So you should admit you were completely wrong, shouldn't you?

No, because he was forced to resign. Now if he had done so out of moral obligation, then I would, but him being forced is not a sign of throwing in the towel. He was defiant, so sorry.

liberals so proud that their grandma killing, serial groper did the "right thing" and resigned.

While furiously trying to involve anyone else but Cuomo into the conversation and speculating what would have happened had be been a Republican while trying to excuse his behavior as being not so bad (he "just" touched people on the butt. and the hip. and the breasts, and the face- he does it to everyone!). thats sad.

its nothing but politics, Dems were afraid their own political aspirations would be harmed by supporting him, its not that they believe these women or think he did anything wrong. Like most posters here you just want him gone so that you cant be criticized by others for supporting him to stay.

Bill Clinton didn’t resign, but Bill O’Reilly was forced to resign and it seems judge Napolitano and Ed Henry (formerly of CNN and FOX) had to resign because of sexual allegations so the right will definitely go after their own if there is merit to relevant allegations of sexual conduct. The difference is and in NYC case, the NYC assembly like California is run by a bunch of hungry Marxists that will eat their own if given the chance and that’s exactly what is happening with Cuomo. Just look at the people running, they’re significantly worse than he is, Sharpton? DeBlasio? Are you crazy?!

Cuomo's resignation has NOTHING to do with impropriety. Somehow this medium-sized monster has become a liability/threat to a more powerful monster, and he had to go. That's how things work in the system. There is no justice, no morality, no law, no due process. There is only utility, leverage, and power.

Why? Nothing to argue, I said what I said.

, are you suggesting that people with sexual assault allegations should not be kicked out?

With Cuomo you have hundreds of photos with him being in a compromising position with mostly women and some men and the photos are damning and to Laguna’s point, Cuomo put himself in that position, he surrounded himself with these women and allowed these photos to be taken and even if he’s a touchy-feely guy and doesn’t mean any harm is besides the point. It’s all about how these people perceive the physical contact. It should’ve been a brief handshake and left it at that, but he didn’t do that and in this day and era of “The me too movement” and social wokeness you can’t make that kind of mistake, But he double down on that and did not think his behavior was inappropriate and you just can’t do that these days, so he is doing to put himself in the situation, no one else, no Republican, Andrew Cuomo put himself in this mess.

-6 ( +0 / -6 )

 "What are you talking about? They gave their speeches, they spoke to the cameras and that’s it, they’re not going to push this man out, he’s not going anywhere. "

Exactly, “on his own” he’s not going anywhere and so he was pushed out by his own party and fast.

What never materialized , donald's assault on young women or your pride in his acts?

Why? Nothing to argue, I said what I said.

Which was basically nothing.

Many are missing the point that this is essentially the local Dem party getting rid of him now that he has outlived his usefulness. Using the smokescreen of his harassment to cover up for the bigger misbehaviour of corruption and killing seniors is a way of reducing the damage to the local political machine. This is pure machine politics - will be the 3rd time a NY State AG has led the way in knifing a sitting Governor. and note she is top of the list of possible replacements for him....

> You can’t win with them. 

As I said, I remember the days when conservatives had a pragmatic, almost avuncular approach to political debate. These days, it’s just a fire in a pet shop of partisanship, crazed conspiracy theories, always playing the victim, ROFLing, paranoia and transparent hypocrisy. 

Sad. Can’t be taken seriously.

Well stated.

You can’t win with them. 

That goes both ways

Again, this goes both ways

Also, you can be a sex pest and still be good at your job. The two aren’t mutually exclusive.

not when you are being a sex pest AT your job.

Fail. But im sure Cuomo appreciates your continued support.

As with the left.

Again no argument!!!

No, so why weren’t charges filed? Oh, yeah, if they had a case he would have been indicted and he hasn’t so that’s another thing these hungry Trump hating lawyers could easily go after and they’re not which one can conclude they have nothing on this guy….again.

A lot of rage here without much substance!

Dont worry about the charges, donald can still get charged and it'll not be pretty for him!!!

so which one of those is the Democrat governor having to resign for sexual harassment after being found to have done illegal/unlawful acts to Democrat staff by a Democrat AG in a Democrat run state?

pet shop of partisanship, crazed conspiracy theories, always playing the victim, ROFLing, paranoia and transparent hypocrisy.

They’ll be clogging up the thread about the next “conservative” sex pest with screeches of “innocent until proven guilty!” and “this is a liberal msm hit piece!”

They change with the wind. I remember the days when they had principles.

Remember when they used to be fiscal conservatives until Trump went bananas with the credit card. They may have moved back to that position now. Hard to keep up.

Fickle.

Can’t be taken seriously.

to watch and enjoy the flailing of liberals to defend your hero

Who’s defending him? Are you going to talk about CNN now?

I hope his sexual harassment will not distract from his responsibility in the nursing home scandal.

CNN has probably offered him a prime time show!

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

You’ve been proven incorrect in this very topic

According to liberals? Hardly.

They change with the wind. I remember the days when they had principles. 

But it’s the exact same with the Dems, when I was a kid my conservative dad said, most Democrat ideas are bad for the nation, but they do care about the working and downtrodden and that’s changed, now they’re the party of ego-elite rich, that enjoy the comfort, safety and protection from big tech.

So I agree, times have changed when they used to stand for something and they at least in those days loved America.

to watch and enjoy the flailing of liberals to defend your hero

Which hero is this? You know that no-one has defended Cuomo, right?

If you stop trying to fight opponents in your head, you will eventually stop punching the walls.

According to liberals? Hardly.

No, according to the facts. Jspac gave a quote where you said that Cuomo would never be forced out. And he was forced out. You were wrong.

I know you have said before that you prefer to live in different realities. Perhaps ones where you have a private jet, or are an elite journalist, or can adequately parse the English language. But I am afraid there is only one reality.

And in that reality, you were wrong. Again.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

No, according to the facts.

More liberal facts? Lol

And he was forced out. You were wrong.

No, because I never stated that, I said that Cuomo was forced to resign, I also said he would not resign on his own and I was right, he had to be forced out or be impeached. So I wasn't wrong. You are always entitled to your personal opinion, but not to your own facts.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

More liberal facts? Lol

There is no such thing as a "liberal fact" or a "conservative fact" or a "socialist fact" or a "fascist fact". There are only facts. It's strange that you do not understand this.

No, because I never stated that

You did. Jspac quoted you saying it. You said that he would never be forced out. Those are literally the words you wrote. As a reminder, you said:

they’re not going to push this man out

And then, they pushed him out. You were wrong.

You are always entitled to your personal opinion, but not to your own facts.

Conservative facts? lol

100% agreed.

great spin attempt by liberals trying to frame this as a good thing. their top guy showed "integrity" by resigning

This is not about a poor old grandpa calling women ‘dear’ in the checkout line. It isn’t about not being able to kiss babies on the campaign trail because times have changed. The actual conduct he’s accused of if you’d actually listen to the women is genuine and sexual harassment which even that grandpa in line would have gotten in trouble for 40 years ago. And that grandpa never did such things, because being a decent human being isn’t some newfangled Twitter thing. He’s only taking responsibility for things that he’s willing to see from his perspective, and from his perspective he’s just sorely misunderstood. He’s resigning because it’s the right thing for us, he’s making a huge sacrifice and wants to be remembered as a hero for doing it. It’s really sick. And just knowing his brother likely had a hand in this just underscores that we don’t need anyone named Cuomo in the public sphere now or ever again.
