Cuomo won’t be charged by New York for undercounting nursing home deaths

Featured image It looks like Andrew Cuomo will not be criminally charged by the Manhattan District Attorney for providing misleading information to the public about the number of deaths from the pandemic in New York nursing homes. Cuomo’s lawyer says he’s been so advised by the DA’s office. Andy McCarthy argues that the DA’s decision not to prosecute is probably the correct one. There’s no doubt that Cuomo deceived the public.

Westchester County won’t prosecute Cuomo for kissings

Featured image Westchester District Attorney Miriam Rocah has decided not to prosecute former New York governor Andrew Cuomo for kissing two women allegedly against their will. Rocah says that credible evidence supports the women’s complaints, but they don’t meet the statutory requirements for bringing criminal charges. In one case, a female state trooper says she was on duty in the security detail outside Cuomo’s home. She asked the governor if he needed »

The Cuomo way to wealth

Featured image Disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo hasn’t been much in the news lately. You may accordingly have missed the release of the state Assembly report on some of Cuomo’s misconduct in office. It is the subject of Michael Goodwin’s New York Post column “No end to how low Andrew Cuomo will go.” Referring to the report’s findings, Goodwin notes: Key among those is showing how Cuomo overruled Department of Health »

Time’s up for Tina Tchen

Featured image Tina Tchen has resigned from her position as president and CEO of Time’s Up, an organization whose mission, purportedly, is to protect women from harassment. Tchen’s resignation follows that of Roberta Kaplan, who co-founded Time’s Up with Tchen and succeeded her as its head. Kaplan resigned after it was revealed that she assisted in Andrew Cuomo’s effort to smear Lindsey Boylan, one of the women who accused the then-governor of »

Andrew Cuomo’s parting shots

Featured image On his way out the door in Albany, Andrew Cuomo gave the finger to at least three major interest groups. It was a fitting departure for this nasty, discredited figure. Cuomo derided the lengthy, thorough report alleging that he sexually harassed 11 women. He whined that the report was “designed to be a political firecracker on an explosive topic” and that it was based on an “unfair and unjust” investigation. »

The sins of the son. . .

Featured image The resignation in disgrace of Andrew Cuomo has led to renewed calls that his father’s name be removed from what used to be named the Tappan Zee Bridge. This bridge, built in the early 1950s, spans the Hudson River north of Midtown Manhattan. “Tappan Zee” had to be one of the coolest names for a structure anywhere in America. “Tappan” comes from an American Indian tribe that once inhabited the »

Midweek in Pictures: Special Cuomo Schadenfraude Edition

Featured image What’s the Italian word for the German word schaenfreude? I think maybe the word I’m looking for is “Cuomo”? Certainly we’re entitled to some heavy alfredo sauce schadenfreude for Andrew, a first class Weltverderber (“world worsener”) if there ever was one. All day today I’ve been smacking my lips in anticipation of what the New York Post would come up with, and I was not disappointed! Reminder of how our »

Heckuva Job, Brownie!

Featured image The Democrats are bidding Andy Cuomo a fond farewell. They want to pretend that he was a successful governor and his downfall was solely attributable to sexual harassment. Thus, Joe Biden’s assessment: Cuomo did 'hell of a job' as governor, Biden says in shock remark after resignation over sex harass claims https://t.co/dQ9POkzRZy pic.twitter.com/MvjMJypXTC — New York Post (@nypost) August 10, 2021 One is reminded of George W.

Breaking: Cuomo Resigns

Featured image Apparently the walls have closed in sufficiently that even a mega-narcissist like Andrew Cuomo couldn’t escape. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced he is “stepping aside” from his office. Cuomo called the impeachment investigation into him “politically motivated” — but added that he was stepping down because he would “never want to be unhelpful in any way.” “I’m a New Yorker, born and bred. I’m a fighter and my instinct is »

Time’s up for Roberta Kaplan

Featured image Over the weekend, I wrote about how Roberta Kaplan and Tina Tchen worked with Andrew Cuomo’s team to attack one of the governor’s sex harassment victims/accusers. Kaplan and Tchen co-founded Time’s Up, an organization that purports to combat sexual harassment but, as the Cuomo affair shows, seems more inclined to protect important Democrats from the fallout of their sexual misconduct. Now comes word that Kaplan has resigned from the Time’s »

Democrats first, feminists a distant second

Featured image How do Democrats view sexual harassment allegations? If we’re talking about party politicians and operatives, I think they view such claims as weapons to be used to derail their enemies — Supreme Court nominees they disapprove of, for example. When the allegations are against enemies, Democratic pols and operatives say, as Joe Biden has, that we should believe the women who make them. But when the allegations are against important »

Creep Cuomo, don’t go

Featured image The New York Post has a hilariously blunt editorial on the Andrew Cuomo experience: “Everyone’s deserted you, Creep Cuomo. It’s over. Just go.” The Post to the contrary notwithstanding, let us resist the urge to join the crowd. Let us pull for Creep Cuomo to hang in there. Democrats richly deserve him. Let him serve as the face of the Democratic Party in the Empire State. Whatever happened to due »

Cuomosexuality

Featured image The real mystery of Andrew Cuomo is why he couldn’t seem to get any tail when the entire press corp constantly kissed his ass. Think I exaggerate? The indispensable Jim Geraghty of National Review‘s “Morning Jolt” offers us this sampler: Yesterday some guy on Twitter disputed my statement that the national media “celebrated” Cuomo throughout most of 2020. He apparently missed the Rolling Stone cover; Politico declaring him a “social »

Cuomo on Kavanaugh

Featured image Andrew Cuomo hasn’t been “credibly accused” of sexual harassment. He has been demonstrated to have indulged in it. Thus, it’s worth considering Cuomo’s pronouncements when Brett Kavanaugh was not so credibly accused of sexual misconduct allegedly committed when he was in high school. Cuomo had this to say: The confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is a sad day for this country, and it will haunt us for »
