Cuomo crony menacingly solicits officials to support the governor

NY Post

A longtime lieutenant to Gov. Cuomo — who is now overseeing New York’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout — called around county officials to gauge their loyalty to the governor amid sexual harassment and misconduct allegations, it emerged Sunday.

Larry Schwartz, who formerly held the highly influential position of secretary to the governor, undertook the phone campaign in the past two weeks as more than a half-dozen women have come forward to accuse Cuomo of inappropriate remarks or behavior.

“Last Friday, I had a conversation with Larry Schwartz who reached out to discuss whether I was supportive of the governor,” Democratic Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone told The Post.

“I explained that there were serious allegations made and that I was supportive of an independent investigation.”

Bellone said that the topic of vaccine distribution did not come up during the call — but at least one Democratic official voiced concerns that their county’s access to the vaccines might hinge on their response to Schwartz.

“At best, it was inappropriate,” that executive told The Washington Post of the call, speaking on condition of anonymity. “At worst, it was clearly over the ethical line.”

That official on Friday alerted the public integrity unit of the state attorney general’s office that they intended to file an ethics complaint over the call.

Schwartz, who is also a Cuomo-appointed MTA board member, urged the executive to reserve judgment on the allegations until the conclusion of a probe by the attorney general’s office, and asked them to keep him apprised of their thoughts on the matter, the official said.

Schwartz stressed that no one refused to take his calls, or indicated to him that they were uncomfortable.

“Everyone took my call or called me back,” he added. “NOBODY indicated they were uncomfortable discussing with me or thought it was inappropriate.”

This Democrat arm twisting stuff goes on all the time in NY. Cuomo and his goons have been pulling this crap since forever now it's a crime? This NY Post story and rest of the recent media blitzkrieg against Cuomo like the prior year long media Emmy award adulation in support of Cuomo shows clearly that "elected" politicians are only the public faces of even more powerful and more nefarious forces who really control our lives. Remember to "Refuse their jab!" -- A quote from the ghost of Hank Aaron.

The damage is done. Nothing will come of this.
President Donald Trump was twice impeached for asking investigators to look into fraudulent activity like this. When the lies have served their purpose, they can be discarded. Will people remember? Most liberals will never believe that the media lies and that MSM is nothing more than propaganda arm of DNC.

ALAS, New York State is buried in at least $13 Billion in massive debt because of a monstrously failed, daynastic CUOMO 'La Familia' leadership that has never led by example. Likewise, New York City is buried in at least $6 Billion in massive debt because of the same failed, hyper-corrupt, entrenched, corporate obedient AND establishment-rigged, de Blasio-DemonRat leadership that has not only betrayed ALL pretense of public trust, ethics, integrity, ACCOUNTABILITY and transparency, but a leadership that now DEVALUES honesty itself——to pathologically high treasonous, traitorous and tyrannical effect——and, the ever languishing public be eternally duped, bilked, scammed and damned.

It's also the reason why New York State now resembles a rotting, ancient Roman Empire- graveyard (the 'ORIGINAL' decaying empire that took 250 years to finally collapse). Now, the only democracy that exists is within the corporate boardrooms of these 'ZIONIST STATES of AMNESIA and ENTERTAINMENT.'

❝A bureaucrat is the most despicable of men, though he is needed as vultures are needed, but one hardly admires vultures whom bureaucrats so strangely resemble.
