Well, this certainly means he won't be running for president...unless it's as a Republican, they seem to go for this sort of stuff.

Most people would make terrible lawyers.

Never give in when there is no direct evidence against you. No one should "ever" do that. Don't negotiate, don't settle, but most importantly, don't quit. When you resign, you give credibility for the civil cases against you.

Even in an impeachment, they have to "prove" their case.

I assumed what's best for him since it's his choice.

Cuomo administration covered up his request to get female trooper
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's administration, including the State Police, allegedly misled the Times Union in December about the governor's request to have a young female trooper that he found attractive appointed to his protective detail in 2018 — a job for which she did not meet the minimum standards at the time that she was given the position.

The Times Union had asked both Cuomo's office and the State Police about the female trooper's appointment to the coveted job on the governor's Protective Services Unit — an appointment that was made after the governor met the now-30-year-old trooper during a ceremony at the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge in New York City in November 2017.

The governor, according to a report issued Tuesday by the state attorney general's office, directed that the trooper be offered the job and subsequently sexually harassed her after she was reassigned to his protective detail two months later.

Alex Burns NYT from twitter:

worth considering that if Cuomo had stopped after two terms he’d now be the popular former gov who pushed gay marriage into law, enacted a $15 min wage, etc, and could’ve spent the pandemic watching his successor struggle, trashing them off record & stoking comeback speculation

and a presidential run...

Letitia wants Andy's job....

More clear, and legit evidence please.
Nothing close to what Donny boy did.
Or even what Bubba did.

Keep a watchful eye on him for the time being, but for now there's still clear, and reasonable doubt as to resignationworthy offenses.

There are plenty of stories about how he conducts himself in office. Its been this way for years but nobody but political nerds have noticed.

Based on that report, he should not be in the position (or decade) that he's in.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Are Dems gonna keep showing up with a knife, I mean, boxing gloves flowers and good feelings to a gun fight?

The LT Gov is a Democrat. Will she get stuff done?

And how many examples of proven, non-consensual sex are in the report?
And how many examples of proven, non-consensual touching after the alleged victim said "no" are in the report?
And how many consensual, but nonetheless inappropriate sex acts are proven in the report?

Mrs. Buzz thinks just about every male over 40 that looks at her is hitting on her, and I know plenty of women that think like that. When we went to our fave Italian restaurant several years ago, when Richard Riordan was mayor of LA, the mayor was already there when we walked in, and spousal unit went up to him and wrapped her arms around him and kissed him on the cheek...., because he looked so familiar, and she thought she knew him.

That's over 20 years ago now, and she's retold her version of the story many, many times since. Mayor Dick was estranged, or between wives at the time, and was waiting for his date to return from the bathroom at the time of Mrs. Buzz's incident, and was known to be a bit on the prowl. Some of spousal unit's retellings would probably make Letitia's report.

Lots of sizzle in the report, but not enough steak.
Keep an eye on Andy until you find some steak.
If/when you find the steak; then you can hang him.

One of the perks of the job! Well, except for the harassment.

So Nixon should just have hung in there?

No. He was sure to be convicted. He was dead bang guilty with a smoking gun. The August 1974 transcript released by his White House proved obstruction. No his word against somebody else's word. Resigning gave him the chance he needed to survive.

Cuomo should go, his time is long gone.



Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

If we didn't have elections, that would be the only thing we fussed about.

The reality is enough of his fellow Republicans would have voted to convict and he knew that. It was a different GOP and different country then.
