It turns out the government of New York really is like The Sopranos.
Except that they murder old people by giving them the flu and putting excessive DNRs on them against the will of the children.
But they did turn the offices of government into the Ba-Da-Bing club.
A second former aide said she was sexually harassed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who responded with a statement Saturday saying he never made advances toward her and never intended to be inappropriate.
Charlotte Bennett, a health policy adviser in the Democratic governor’s administration until November, told The New York Times Cuomo asked her inappropriate questions about her sex life, including whether she ever had sex with older men.
Another former aide, Lindsey Boylan, a former deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to the governor, recently accused Cuomo of subjecting her to an unwanted kiss and inappropriate comments. Cuomo denied the allegations.
Cuomo said in a statement Saturday that Bennett was a “hardworking and valued member of our team during COVID” and that “she has every right to speak out.”
He said he had intended to be a mentor for Bennett, who is 25.
“I never made advances toward Ms. Bennett nor did I ever intend to act in any way that was inappropriate,” Cuomo’s statement said. “The last thing I would ever have wanted was to make her feel any of the things that are being reported.”
Cuomo, however, said he had authorized an outside review of Bennett’s allegations.
The governor’s special counsel, Beth Garvey, said that review would be conducted by a former federal judge, Barbara Jones.
“I ask all New Yorkers to await the findings of the review so that they know the facts before making any judgements,” Cuomo said. “I will have no further comment until the review has concluded.”
Some top New York Democrats, however, said any investigation should be placed out of the control of the governor’s office, including the selection of the investigator.
“The accused CANNOT appoint the investigator. PERIOD,” tweeted U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice, a Long Island Democrat. “The continued allegations are deeply disturbing and concerning. The behavior described has no place in the workplace. A truly independent investigation must begin immediately.”
Nah, I mean – all sexual harassment is fake.
This is just Cuomo getting thrown under the bus.
Last time they accused him of this, before he was thrown under the bus, it was some woman saying “he would tell me I looked pretty today.”
HOWEVER – Cuomo is some kind of a pervert, because he’s got pierced nipples.
But yeah, in general, any man who goes out there and talks about how he’s a male feminist is probably doing that to cover up the fact that he’s trying to have sex with every woman in his vicinity. The lie is that the women involved have no role in it.
Andrew Cuomo clearly pissed someone off.
