Embattled Gov. Cuomo slams New York Dems for demanding his resignation: ‘reckless and dangerous’

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s week went from really bad to incredibly worse as yet another former staffer revealed that she believes she was sexually harassed by the governor, which prompted a flurry of new calls for his resignation, including several from high-profile congressional Democrats.

According to Townhall, Cuomo doubled-down on Friday during a COVID-19 briefing, via teleconference, in which he claimed the politicians calling for his resignation were acting in a “reckless and dangerous” manner. 

Refusing to resign

Cuomo, in the usual blunt, repetitive manner in which he speaks, assured everyone listening that he still won’t consider resigning, even as the number of women who come out against him continues to increase.

He went on to say that he respects the right that those women have to speak out, but in the same breath, he suggested that there could be alternative motivations in cases where a person makes an allegation of that nature against someone else.

“I won’t speculate about people’s possible motives, but I can tell you as a former attorney general who’s gone through this situation many times, there are often many motivations for making an allegation, and that is why you need to know the facts before you make a decision,” Cuomo said.

Cuomo then slammed the politicians — which number in the dozens — who have already come out with calls for his resignation without having the “facts,” as Cuomo repeated numerous times on the call and in prior briefings.

He went on to suggest that he’s a victim of “cancel culture,” suggesting that the demands for his resignation are simply apart of the dirty side of state politics, saying “People know the difference between playing politics, bowing to cancel culture, and the truth.”

The pressure mounts

While Cuomo is certainly entitled to due process like any other American, what he apparently fails to grasp or, more likely, won’t admit to, is the fact that his sexual harassment scandal is a massive distraction for the Democratic party, especially at a state level, which is why so many high-profile Democrats want him out, post-haste.

That was made especially clear in a bombshell statement from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) who issued a joint statement explaining that the situation has boiled over and has rendered Cuomo’s ability to continue to govern completely ineffective.

“Due to the multiple, credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations, it is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of New York. Governor Cuomo should resign,” the New York senators wrote in a joint statement, according to Fox News.

Their statement came in the wake of several additional high-profile New York Democrats, like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Jerry Nadler (D-NY) issuing similar calls for Cuomo to throw in the towel and face the music.

In other words, the only “reckless and dangerous” situation at this point is Cuomo remaining in office and as tough as he might act, it’s clear that his shields are quickly being taken down, as he’s essentially lost the support of the entire party. His days as governor will most likely be short-lived, at this point.

    1. Cuomo can’t be forced to resign, BUT HE CAN BE ARRESTED, TRIED, CONVICTED, AND PUT IN PRISON FOR WHAT HE’S DONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cuomo is the definition of SCUMBAG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Gov. Cuomo calls asking for his resignation is reckless and dangerous??? Gov. Cuomo, it is because of your reckless and dangerous command to put covid patients in nursing homes that have caused the death of thousands. Now to be more reckless, you want covida patients to be put in homes for the disabled. You are the last one to talk about reckless and dangerous behavior. I hope after the investigations you spend time in prison to reflect on the grief you have caused for so many grieving people that have lost love ones as a result of your irresponsible command.

  4. Hypocrite, it was acceptable to Democrats to accuse without facts and agree with cancel culture when the target was a conservative or President Trump. Now the shoe is on the other foot and Democrats are eating their own.

  5. The citizens of New York State need to remove NYC from their sovereignty and elect God-fearing, constitutional conservatives at all levels of government.

  6. When I broach the topic of racism & Cuomo in his groping of white women and avoiding black women, all my comments disappear. I guess you are the thought police here. Cuomo is in deep enough and this is just too much to stir into the pot.

  7. Truly amazing how evident the hypocrisy of it all is. Where’s our fearless VP? She had plenty to say against conservatives who were facing the same accusations, not to mention her leader of the free world. Oh yeah except that she’s gunning for his job so Mums the word. Disgusting display of leadership on all counts.

  8. Why do peole listen to the cancel culture at all? just tell them to go F themselves!!!!!Is the White house next? Paint it another color??I hope not…
