Cuomo is laying low and buying time. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is besieged by the media, under scrutiny for multiple accusations of sexual harassment and under investigation for the deaths of more than 15,000 Seniors in nursing homes due to COVID. So he’s taking a page from President Bill Clinton’s book.
It’s hard to imagine the in-your-face New Yorker so humbled after such grandiose and now infamous theatrics as his daily livestreams that won him an Emmy, to his New York Times best seller lauding his “Leadership Lessons From the Covid-19 Pandemic”.
Even, The Washington Post reported that Rebecca Katz, a Democratic strategist said, “He wrote a ‘mission accomplished’ book before the mission was accomplished.” Little did they know, he didn’t just assume victory early, he betrayed the mission.
The Sledgehammer Swings Just Above Him
The last 72 hours must’ve been brutal for the elder son of the Cuomo political dynasty. New York State Attorney General Letitia James has taken the helm of the ongoing Sexual harassment investigation against him according to CNN. And even the DNC faithful of New York are getting ready to turn their backs on him.
“He’s saying that nothing inappropriate happened. If the investigation shows that something inappropriate did happen, I think he would have to resign,” New York state Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, a Democrat, told CNN on Wednesday.”
And the harassment charges are seriously the least of his worries. Even after accuser Charlotte Bennett detailed to CBS how Cuomo “groomed her in an attempt to sleep with her” March 5th.
15,000 Dead On Governor Cuomo’s Orders- And They Hid It
In an absolutely catastrophic report, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, leftist strongholds both broke the story: Gov. Cuomo’s top aides doctored reports to the department of health resulting in a
“significant undercount of the death toll attributed to long-term-care facility residents”.
“The number — more than 9,000 by that point in June — was not public, and the governor’s most senior aides wanted to keep it that way. They rewrote the report to take it out, according to interviews and documents reviewed by The New York Times.
The Wallstreet Journal described the Cuomo scam to hide the horrific consequences of forcing nursing homes to accept COVID+ patients, over their objections and alarm in detail,
“New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top advisers successfully pushed state health officials to strip a public report of data showing that more nursing-home residents had died of Covid-19 than the administration had acknowledged, according to people with knowledge of the report’s production.
“State officials now say more than 15,000 residents of nursing homes and other long-term-care facilities were confirmed or presumed to have died from Covid-19 since March of last year—counting both those who died in long-term-care facilities and those who died later in hospitals. That figure is about 50% higher than earlier official death tolls.”
It’s Only A Matter Of Time Before It Comes Down
The Washington Post’s Dan Balz wrote,
“Barely a year ago, New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) was at the top of the political world, lionized for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and described by more than a few Democrats as possibly a better candidate for president than presumptive nominee Joe Biden. Today, beset by scandal, he is fighting for his political life.”
Even if Governor Cuomo survives the scandals of 2021 with his career intact and without going to prison, it is now unimaginable that he could ever be considered a Democrat front-runner ever again. He has said he will not resign, and he may not have to pending results of the multiple probes. But even if he remains in office he will most likely fade from public life, an exhausted broken man, failing to surpass his more widely acclaimed father.
Mario Cuomo too was Governor of New York and was called “Hamlet on the Hudson” due to his unwillingness to run in the DNC primary of 1992 which instead nominated Bill Clinton, despite being highly popular. Rather than the Hamlet of his father, Andrew Cuomo will be remembered like Shakespeare’s Claudius: the villain of Hamlet who was a calculating, ambitious politician, driven by his depraved sexual appetites and his heartless, deadly lust for power.
