Cuomo's faux Me-a culpa



In his first public appearance since multiple women accused him of sexual harassment, Governor Andrew Cuomo apologized for his behavior, but refused to resign from office as several Queens legislators have called for.

Cuomo issued the apology on Wednesday after two former staffers accused the governor of sexual harassment and a third woman accused him of unwanted touching at a 2019 wedding reception.

“I want New Yorkers to hear from me directly on this… I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable,” he said during a live press briefing. “It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it.”

Cuomo said he felt “awful” and “embarrassed” about the allegations as he choked up at times during his address.

“I never touched anyone inappropriately,” he said. “I never knew at the time that I was making anyone feel uncomfortable.”

Several Democratic lawmakers in New York — including multiple in Queens — have demanded that Cuomo resign in light of the sexual harassment allegations. State Sen. Jessica Ramos, Assembly Member Jessica González-Rojas and Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer have all said that he should resign.

Cuomo rebuffed their demands at the press briefing and said that they were politicians “playing politics.”

“I was elected by the people of the state of New York, I’m not going to resign,” he said. “I work for the people of the state of New York.”

 Eat the whole sausage, excelsior.

Appreciate his honesty

Cuomo then proceeded to write off much of de Blasio’s year left in office, saying the city will “have a new Mayor that’s going to be selected basically in June” and “that work” — of rescuing New York City — “has to start right away.”

Selected? By whom?

"Kiss it!" ... both you Queens guys are real horndawgs, but Andy, The Donald wins the sausage.

He said he hugged people in Queens the other day. During covid? And how he said he kisses men. I only see that in mob movies.

Dont worry. His mother will die and he will cry at a press conference to get sympathy then write another book. Hes got hundreds of millions to pass out and people want to make sure they are on the right side.

Andy said I'm back baby!

"I am incredibly proud of the work that this administration has done to further women’s rights,” said DeRosa, joining Cuomo at an Albany press briefing, his first since the scandal exploded.

DeRosa specifically cited workplace protections the administration championed."

"Cuomo’s number one donor was from the elderly home community where Ms. DeRosa’s father and brother are lobbyists"

Any questions grab them by the pussy followers?

Cuomo is a thug, degenerate, tyrant,thief and bully but Democrats like that in all their politicians look at Biden, no there is much more to this lynching of Cuomo than making some camp follower women feel uncomfortable. We will never know the details but obviously the oligarchs want Cuomo gone.
