New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is in trouble. Since I called for him to resign over the scandal of him allegedly concealing COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes, three people have accused him of sexual harassment — two former staffers, and one attendee at a wedding. The allegations range from unwelcome sexual comments to a non-consensual kiss on the lips, and most of them allegedly happened after the #MeToo movement got started and Cuomo attacked the “pervasive poison of workplace sexual harassment.”
A few Democrats and institutions like the Working Families Party have since called on Cuomo to resign. But so far the party elite — particularly President Biden, Vice President Harris, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi — have not (though Pelosi did admit that the allegations sound “credible”).
