    A woman claiming to be a former staff member to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has levied more allegations of sexual harassment against the governor, calling the advances “calculated.” The Times Union published an interview with the woman on Wednesday, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, detailing her experiences with the governor in his mansion. The woman told the Times Union that the governor had groomed her while in his mansion in what she described as a “pattern” of behavior that ranged from “tight hugs” to “kisses on the cheek.” The staffer recalled how in November, @NYGovCuomo called her from the Capitol to the executive mansion. She said that when she arrived in Cuomo’s office, he rose from his desk and hugged her in a way that “wasn’t just a hug.”https://t.co/3VP1qWxvDr — Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) April 7, 2021 “Sometimes he would pull my whole body close to him....
    Andrew Cuomo was paid more than $4 million for his controversial book bragging about his handling of the pandemic at the same time that his office was hiding nursing home deaths, according to a report. Sources told the New York Times the embattled governor of New York state landed the big-dollar deal with publisher Crown for his memoir 'American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic'. The outlet, which obtained emails about the book and an early draft, found Cuomo was writing the book in June and July - which closely coincided with the release of the state's July 6 report. It later emerged the report had grossly undercounted COVID-19 nursing home deaths with Cuomo's office altering the 9,844 death total in the first draft to release a lower number of 6,432 to the public.  Cuomo also took aim at New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio in an early draft of the...
    Samantha Kamman, The Western Journal March 22, 2021 0 Comments The recent sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo have shed new light on the politician’s past treatment of women. While the Democratic governor has often portrayed himself as a champion for women through his support for abortion, Cuomo’s self-proclaimed commitment to feminism appears to be little more than a performative gesture. Cuomo founded the Women’s Equality Party in 2014, according to CNN. The New York governor allegedly created the party to advance female candidates, but many critics say it did just the opposite. Both feminists and female politicians could not help but notice that the WEP appeared to be focused more on helping Cuomo maintain political power than championing women. Why Critics Believe Cuomo Founded the WEP To Cuomo’s critics, it appeared that he was merely paying lip service to feminism to satisfy his political ambitions....

Cuomo joked he would ‘mount’ former aide: report Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday accused his embattled political rival, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, of risking New Yorkers’ lives to boost his popularity — and called him “a central part” in the state’s history of corruption. During his weekly interview on WNYC radio, de Blasio agreed when asked if he believed Cuomo would play “fast and loose with people’s lives” to improve his image. “Well, he clearly did with the nursing homes,” de Blasio said. “Decisions were made that were dangerous to people’s health and well-being. Thousands of people were lost and the governor of the...
    New York : As voices of condemnation and calls for Andrew Cuomo’s resignation grow, so too does support for the possible rise of Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, who would be the first woman in history to lead the executive branch in New York. Ironically, that feminine milestone would be achieved by allegations of sexual harassment against Cuomo, who has also been questioned by a scandal in theory greater: the mass deaths of the elderly during the pandemic. NY belongs to the 20 minority states in the country that have never had a female governor. Coincidence or not, regarding International Women’s Day, this week Hochul wrote on Twitter: “New York has been at the forefront of women’s rights and women have led the way in making history.” In recent days, political support for the lieutenant governor has gained momentum. The 59 state legislators who issued a statement on Thursday asking...
    Conservative: Anti-Cuomo Johnny-Come-Latelies New York’s liberal political class, including Mayor de Blasio, are turning against Gov. Cuomo and calling for his emergency powers to be revoked — “but why now?” asks The Federalist’s Christopher Bedford. De Blasio and others cite Cuomo’s withholding of nursing-home death data, but “that fact, you might notice, has been in the media spotlight for weeks now,” and outlets led by The Post have been probing the issue for nearly a year. The left cites the recent sexual-harassment allegations against the gov, “which are indeed terrible. . . . But what about spending months lying and blaming others for 15,000 deaths in vulnerable elderly care facilities? Was that not enough to immediately end emergency authorities when it was exposed and then admitted?” Media watch: The ‘Invented’ Andrew Narrative At The Daily Beast, Ross Barkan wonders what “took so long” for the press to wake up on...
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s love life has been rocky, and sometimes cringe-worthy, for years — since well before a second former aide accused him of sexual harassment on the job on Feb. 27. Briefly the hearthrob of some swooning liberals — who called themselves "Cuomosexuals" at the height of the governor’s daily COVID-19 briefings last year — Cuomo, 63, has made no secret that he’s on the prowl after a very public breakup in 2019. One of those Cuomosexuals was comedian Chelsea Handler. But when the LA-based comic asked him out online, the gov ghosted her, she joked last October, a year after his breakup with 14-year girlfriend and celebrity chef Sandra Lee. Gov.

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s love life has been rocky, and sometimes cringe-worthy, for years — since well before a second former aide accused him of sexual harassment on the job on Saturday. Briefly the hearthrob of some swooning liberals — who called themselves “Cuomosexuals” at the height of the governor’s daily COVID-19 briefings last year — Cuomo, 63, has made no secret that he’s on the prowl after a very public breakup in 2019. One of those Cuomosexuals was comedian Chelsea Handler. But when the LA-based comic asked him out online, the gov ghosted her, she joked last October, a year after his breakup with 14-year girlfriend and celebrity chef Sandra Lee. “I’m a big fan of Chelsea’s and she is great and we have fun but on my dating life, you know, I am only dating at this point in-state residents,” Cuomo said during an appearance in October on...
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s alleged threat to “destroy” state Assemblyman Ron Kim over criticism of the spiraling nursing home scandal is just the latest example of the governor’s well-known penchant for bullying political foes, according to sources and a published report. The Democrat has built such a reputation for threatening adversaries — and berating employees — that Mayor Bill de Blasio, another fellow Democrat who is a frequent target of the fury, last week characterized Kim’s claim as “classic Andrew Cuomo.” Though now in his third term as governor, Cuomo’s no-holds-barred approach to politics was on display as early as his first, according to New York political insiders. At the wedding of two former administration staffers during the governor’s first term, one speaker asked during a toast how many attendees had been bullied by Cuomo at some point — then watched as hands shot up across the room, a guest told...

    The two lawyers representing Adam Johnson, the MAGA fan infamously photographed happily smiling while stealing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s lectern, claimed that, despite evidence to the contrary, their client is actually “pro-law enforcement” and was trespassing in the Capitol to “witness a little bit of history” while, apparently, also looting. Florida attorneys David Bigney and Dan Eckhart appeared on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time on Monday night to give their public defense of Johnson, who was bonded out of jail in Tampa, Florida after being charged with trespassing, theft, and violent entry and disorderly conduct. The image of Trump-hatted Johnson, light-heartedly waving at the camera in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall as he stole the lectern, became an instant symbol of the arrogance and lawlessness of the pro-Trump mob.

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday a new COVID-19 strain that was detected in the state after it was first identified in the United Kingdom last month "could be a game changer." He called it "highly problematic." "This is a virus we have to be extra careful with," the governor said at a press conference. The state's first confirmed diagnosis of the contagious new strain was detected in Saratoga Springs. The man who tested positive is affiliated with a jewelry store there, CBS New York reported. The person had no known travel history, Cuomo said. The governor urged anyone who was exposed, or who was exposed to someone who was exposed, to contact state officials. "There's nothing to be ashamed of," he said. "This is a virus that travels. But we have to know. Containment is vitally important here." Experts say there's no evidence the new strain is...

    The U.S. Navy and Northrop Grumman have reached a record-setting agreement to cleanup a Long Island aquifer that has been a point of contention with the state for decades. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared “the end of a Long Island 10-year fight” on Monday, Dec. 21, announcing that the two have reached a $406 million plan to stop and remove Grumman’s groundwater pollutants that has been spreading in Bethpage for years. “My DEC and our whole team here knew that there was a pollution plume left by Grumman with toxic chemicals in the aquifer,” he said. “It was left during the manufacturing era by Grumman and the plume has been growing and moving to more and more communities.” Cuomo said that they fought for 10 years to get the deal done, which will include the installation of new containment extraction wells along the edges of the miles-long toxic...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo got defensive Wednesday about his upcoming book on New York’s battle with the coronavirus pandemic — even though he says that the Empire State is only “at halftime” when it comes to the health crisis. “I announced I’m doing a book on COVID, they say I’m doing a history of COVID. No, my book is not about the history of COVID, because it’s not over,” a ruffled Cuomo said unprompted during a conference call with reporters. “It is what we have learned, what we should learn, what we must do, how we handled this, and what we need to do in the second half of the game,” said Cuomo, adding, “As we sit in the midst of it today we need to prepare for the second wave.” The three-term Democrat’s latest tome, titled “American Crisis,” will be released on Oct. 13, it was revealed this week....
    President Trump came out swinging against some of the Democrats’ heaviest hitters after taking continuous criticism on the first night of the Democratic National Convention. The commander-in-chief hit back at former First Lady Michelle Obama Tuesday morning following her Monday evening headlining speech — blaming her husband’s administration for the country’s current problems. “Somebody please explain to @MichelleObama that Donald J. Trump would not be here, in the beautiful White House, if it weren’t for the job done by your husband, Barack Obama. Biden was merely an afterthought, a good reason for that very late & unenthusiastic endorsement,” the commander-in-chief tweeted Tuesday morning.

    On Monday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo — who has been widely criticized for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in his state, which has seen by far the most deaths from the virus in the country — attacked not only the Trump administration, calling its actions vis-à-vis the virus the “worst government blunder in modern history,” but also the states of Florida, Arizona and Texas for opening their economies. Cuomo started by insisting the United States needs to “hit the reset button …it has to start with the President telling the American people the truth.” Cuomo accused President Trump of consistently lying to the American people and encouraging them not to take the virus seriously. Then he stated that governors who had opened their economies made a mistake. “The President of the United States said five months ago, ‘Reopen the economy. Liberate the states. Liberate the economy. These governors are slow...
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday fuming over the federal response to the pandemic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday slammed the federal government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic as the 'worst government blunder in modern history' and said states like Florida and Texas were foolish to follow the advice coming from the Trump administration.  At a press conference where he called on New Yorkers to continue social distancing and wearing masks, he pointed to how the numbers had turned around in his state while others are growing elsewhere.  Experts predict there will be another 30,000 deaths in the US by the end of August. To date, more than 150,000 have died and there have been more than 4million cases.  Both Florida and Texas are seeing a rise in coronavirus cases and deaths, whereas New York's numbers have been holding steady for several weeks now after slow but significant...
    By Gabriella Borter (Reuters) - New York Governor Cuomo on Monday criticized the federal government and other states for failing to take the COVID-19 crisis seriously after seeing the devastation it caused his state in the spring. Cuomo said that states where cases are currently spiking, including Texas and Florida, followed the federal government's lead in playing down the epidemic, which led them to reopen their economies too soon. "This was the worst government blunder in modern history," Cuomo said of the federal government's response to the pandemic. "It was a mistake to deny the reality that happened in New York," he added. New York's statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 fell to 536, Cuomo said, the lowest level since March. (Reporting by Gabriella Borter; editing by Jonathan Oatis) Copyright 2020 Thomson Reuters.
    CNN anchor Don Lemon weighed in on the recent wave of toppled statues and suggested that Americans were taught "propaganda" about the nation's history. During Monday's nightly handoff with colleague Chris Cuomo, Lemon accused the president of "putting himself in a position" where he is "defending racist, treasonous people" over his support of Confederate statues and his recent tweet suggesting NASCAR made a mistake by banning Confederate flags. Lemon then defended the recent onslaught of statues that have destroyed by rioters of non-Confederates like Ulysses S. Grant and George Washington, saying "movements are often messy" and how young people "have asked for decades" for the removal of certain statues and now "the chickens are coming home to roost." "Nobody is erasing history," Lemon told Cuomo. "What people are trying to do is put it in context and these are conversations that we should be having. And yes, they are messy. And sometimes...
    President Donald Trump railed against CNN on Twitter Wednesday morning, claiming he cannot “believe how badly” the network performed in the latest ratings figures. The president must not have read the numbers: CNN drew the highest ratings of its 40 year history for the second quarter of 2020. What’s more, the president blamed Chris Cuomo (who he referred to as “Fredo”) as the reason for CNN’s alleged ratings woes, arguing the anchor fo Cuomo Prime Time should be given a “big pay cut.” Once again, the president would be well served in reading Mediaite’s ratings coverage: Chris Cuomo had the highest-rated show on CNN in the second quarter, and even beat out MSNBC ratings juggernaut Rachel Maddow in the demo. “Can’t believe how badly @CNN has done in the newly released TV ratings,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “They are so far below @FoxNews (thank you President Trump!) that you...
    More than 150 protesters gathered outside of New York's Museum of Natural History yesterday in an effort to save a statue of President Theodore Roosevelt from being removed. During the hour-long demonstration speakers made the case for keeping the bronze effigy of Roosevelt firmly in its place at the Museum's entrance, where it has stood since 1940. The museum had announced its plans to remove the statue of the former president last week after gaining approval from Bill de Blasio, Mayor of New York City. The statue features Roosevelt being flanked by a Native American man and an African man while riding on horse back, suggesting they are 'subjugated and racially inferior', de Blasio said in a statement.

    ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio are backing the Museum of Natural History’s decision to remove the Teddy Roosevelt statue from its Upper West Side entrance amid backlash following race-based protests over the death of George Floyd. The Museum was granted permission by the city to remove the bronze sculpture of Roosevelt on Sunday. “I think the museum has a made a decision. They think the statue in this environment, is in bad taste, they want to take it down, I support their decision,” Cuomo said Monday morning during an MSNBC interview. De Blasio shortly after echoed the sentiment during a press conference in Manhattan. “I have looked at it and I think Roosevelt himself is another one of these complex figures in American history, he did some extraordinarily progressive things that we feel to this day and he did some things that...
