Crocodile Tears Schumer: Allegations Against Cuomo 'Nauseating'- Only Took 6 Victims To Get That
The View hosts have previously suggested that the New York governor's accusers should be 'ignore' but now it seems like they have no idea where the left wants them to stand on the issue. Could it be all the backlash for their callous sexiest suggestion? Probably.
Host Sunny Hostin asked the Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer where he stands, “Multiple women, including former employees, have also made sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior conduct accusations against Gov. Cuomo,” said Hostin, a former prosecutor. “He has pledged to cooperate with the New York Attorney General’s independent investigation, and he’s made it clear he’s not resigning, but he did apologize if his behavior made anyone uncomfortable. Is that enough?”
“The allegations of these women are very, very troubling,” replied Schumer. He was particularly affected by an allegation that surfaced Wednesday evening from a female staff member who claims Cuomo reached under her blouse and groped her while they were alone in a private room inside the Executive Mansion, as reported by the Albany Times Union. The aide is the sixth woman to accuse Cuomo of inappropriate behavior, though he has denied all allegations of sexual harassment or assault.
“They all must be looked into,” Schumer said of the allegations against Cuomo. “I’ve always been strongly against sexual harassment. It cannot — cannot — be tolerated. And it’s been with us for too long and in too many instances.”
“At this time there has been no formal criminal complaint and there is no active criminal investigation,” he added.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio might be one of the worst mayors in New York history but he's not wrong about one thing. In a press conference de Blasio blasted Cuomo saying that 'he can no longer serve as governor anymore':
“It’s deeply troubling. The specific allegation that the governor called an employee of his — someone who he had power over — called them to a private place and then sexually assaulted her, is absolutely unacceptable. It is disgusting to me,” the mayor said during his daily press COVID-19 briefing.
“He can no longer serve as governor anymore. It’s as simple as that,” the mayor…
“it’s not one, it’s not 2, it’s not 3, it’s not 4, it’s not 5. It’s 6 women coming forward,” said de Blasio.
But yet, Cuomo is so confident that his powerful Democratic buddies will back him that he continues to refuse the notion that he needs to step down.
