What are they waiting for in getting rid of Andrew Cuomo?
The likeliest answer is that they need to position someone to take over, and that successor is just not quite there yet. Remember: the Democrat Party owns New York State, and can, and likely do, manipulate this kind of thing to whatever extent they wish.
Now that Cuomo is politically dead — long, long, long dead! — there are reasons he’s still in office, and one of those reasons is surely: NY Dems don’t yet have someone absolutely locked in to replace the bastard. That means that Cuomo’s replacement when he steps down, as he will — NY Lieut. Gov. Kathleen C. Hochul — has been examined and found wanting. Otherwise, she would be governor now.
Or… The Dems are simply waiting for the moment they believe to be the most propitious to get rid of Cuomo.(1)
Make no mistake about this: the likelihood that Cuomo groped and pawed a few women pales next to the well-documented fact that he killed some 15,000+ elderly people in nursing homes, then lied about it. Then defended his own lies.
The (as of now) five women who’ve stepped forward to accuse Cuomo of sexual harassment are there merely to ensure that the Democrat Party liability that is Andrew Cuomo leaves the scene.
Whether Cuomo ever actually did anything inappropriate or not, these accusers would be there, dutifully accusing.(2)
I wish someone on the GOP side would make the following obvious point: Cuomo has been exposed as at least one of only two possible things: #1: He’s unutterably stupid and incompetent, and that caused the deaths of 15,000+ nursing home patients, or #2: he’s unspeakably evil, and did it on purpose. Again, we can’t rule out #3: All of the above.
I think NY Democrats know all this, have known it for a long time, and simply aren’t willing to wait for someone on the GOP side to cotton to it all and say it.
I said the following all the way back in March of 2020, and I’m a medical layman: “It’s simple: This (COVID19) is a disease… our first priority is to protect the elderly and those weakened by other health issues.”
I was right. And Andrew Cuomo, (CA governor) Gavin Newsom and (MI governor) Gretchen Whitmer likely all knew that basic bit of common sense too. Or else they’re blithering idiots.
They all (along with others, but these are the best known) issued executive orders to house COVID patients in with the elderly and the weakened patients in nursing homes, thereby guaranteeing that they’d kill thousands.
If you were to try to think up a way to kill thousands of elderly and weakened people, and get away with it, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better way than the one Coumo-Newsom-Whitmer found. They overtly, even aggressively, killed nursing home residents, by the thousands, this past year.
Bastards and idiots, every last one of ’em.
(1) By the way, when Andrew steps down as governor, how long will it be before Chris the buffoon brother at CNN, has to find other employment?
(2) We observed that this kind of dirty trick is a standard in the Dems’ arsenal, regardless of whether the target has done anything inappropriate. We said it, for example, the moment President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. (here, for example, in a more blanket statement, but we said it all the same.)
Whenever the Left wants to get rid of someone, if that someone doesn’t leave promptly, the accusation of sexual impropriety of any kind always makes an appearance; again, regardless of whether the target is 110% innocent or not.
