Mr Andrew Cuomo, 1957, è Governatore dello Stato di New York dal 2011, membro eminente del Partito Democratico, liberal ortodosso di stretta osservanza.
«Since late 2020, Cuomo has faced allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault. By April 2021, eleven women had made accusations against him. In a long-anticipated report published on August 3, 2021, New York State Attorney General Letitia James stated that Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women during his time in office. President Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Kirstin Gillibrand have all called on him to resign»

– Cuomo, in an 85-page defense against the Attorney General’s report, used photos of other Democrats and George Bush in an attempt to show that all politicians get handsy
– He says his behavior against women is nothing out of the ordinary and any claim of assault is untrue
– Some of the women say he groped their behinds and breasts – which he denies but the AG says is true
– Everyone from de Blasio to Biden is now calling for him to stand down but he is refusing to
– He now faces impeachment at the NY legislature, civil lawsuits and potential criminal charges in Albany and Westchester, where prosecutors have opened investigations into the allegations
Negli Stati Uniti è in corso una faida all’interno del partito democratico, e tutti i liberal reclamano la testa di Mr Cuomo, costi quello costi. Nei disperati tempi nei quali si stava peggio, Mr Cuomo avrebbe pagato con la vita, suicidandosi impiccandosi ad un albero di fragole, la sua pretesa a decidere con la sua testa. Adesso, per il momento, potrebbe anche continuare a vivere.

A nostro sommesso avviso, ma certi di asserire un concetto corretto, una persona accusata di un qualcosa dovrebbe essere ritenuta essere innocente fino a sentenza definitiva.
Quasi tutte le legislazioni in materia definiscono come reato una qualche azione prevista dal codice penale. Ma la stessa azione compiuta prima di essere stata contemplata nel codice penale non può essere considerata reato.
Sempre a nostro modo di vedere, il tribunale dovrebbe valutare le accuse solo ed esclusivamente sulla scorta di una documentazione oggettiva, verificabile e verificata: senza prove inconfutabili le accuse sarebbero solo calunnie.
Similmente, il tribunale dovrebbe lasciare alla difesa ampi margini operativi, affinché siano espresse, e comprovate, tutte le istanze della persona accusata.
Nell’emettere sentenza, il tribunale dovrebbe valutare infine le situazioni al contorno.

Orbene, undici donne hanno asserito che Mr Andrew Cuomo avrebbe loro inferto dei sexual harassment, ossia qualcosa da loro ritenuto essere oltraggioso sessualmente. Non è dato di sapere le date cui risalirebbero i fatti, ma sembrerebbero essere di vecchia data, ossia ben prima che il sexual harassment fosse stato considerato da tribunali e leggi.
Nell’ideologia liberal e nei tribunali liberal il sexual harassment è considerato essere il peggiore dei peggiori reati.
Sempre a nostro modo di vedere, il fatto che Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, e Kirstin Gillibrand abbiano detto che Mr Andrew Cuomo deve dimettersi solo sulla base di quanto hanno asserito quelle donne, ci sembrerebbe essere una bruttura, anche tenendo presente che Mr Andrew Cuomo si dichiara innocente.
È la negazione di ogni qualsiasi forma di giustizia, per non dire di sano buon senso.

La musica cambierebbe se una simile prava azione fosse stata fatta spinti dall’invidia, al solo fine di eliminare una personalità diventata scomoda: ma questo sarebbe un pensar male, cosa aliena alla nostra mentalità.

NEW YORK, Aug 4 (Reuters) – Some 59% of New Yorkers think Governor Andrew Cuomo should resign after an investigation found that he groped, kissed or made suggestive comments to 11 women in violation of U.S. and state law, a Marist Poll showed on Wednesday.
After state Attorney General Letitia James unveiled the five-month independent investigation’s conclusions on Tuesday, the Democratic governor said in a video statement he has no plans to resign and denied he had acted inappropriately.
The poll of 614 randomly selected New York state adults was conducted by landline or mobile phone on Tuesday and survey questions were available in English or Spanish, Marist said. It found that 59% said the governor should resign in light of the findings, 32% said he should serve out his term and 9% said they were unsure.
Among New York Democrats, 52% said he should resign, 41% said he should not and 8% were unsure, while 77% of Republicans said he should quit, 16% said he should stay and 7% were unsure.
The poll also found that 44% of respondents said Cuomo did something illegal, 29% said he did something unethical but not illegal, 7% concluded he did nothing wrong, 6% had not heard enough about the allegations and 13% were unsure.

– In March, Biden said Cuomo should resign if the AG investigation confirmed sexual misconduct claims.
– Responding to the report in a 14-minute address, Cuomo remained defiant.
Washington — President Joe Biden on Tuesday called for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign following a damning new report from the state attorney general’s office that alleged Cuomo sexually harassed 11 women including state employees in violation of state and federal laws.
“I think he should resign,” Biden said, sticking by his position from March when he said the Democratic governor should resign if the AG investigation confirmed the sexual harassment claims.
Biden did not say when asked whether the New York state legislature should impeach Cuomo if he refused to step down. The president said he was sure some of Cuomo’s embraces of women were “totally innocent” as the governor has claimed.
“But apparently, the attorney general decided there were things that weren’t,” Biden said.
The president’s statement is the most devastating yet politically for Cuomo, who for months has resisted calls that he resign from prominent New York Democrats as he seeks to finish his third term. Cuomo is up for reelection in 2022.
The bombshell report released by New York Attorney General Letitia James’s office provided corroborated accounts of harassment by Como that included unwanted groping, kissing, hugging and inappropriate comments, including claims from one executive assistant who says Cuomo reached under her blouse and grabbed her breast.
Responding to the report in a 14-minute address, Cuomo remained defiant, making clear he plans to stay in office and denying the claims. The governor, who was not charged with any crimes, vowed to bring in a sexual harassment expert to train his staff.
“The facts are much different than what has been portrayed,” Cuomo said. “I want you to know directly from me that I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances. I am 63 years old. I have lived my entire adult life in public view. That is just not who I am. And that’s not at all who I have ever been.”
At one point, Cuomo highlighted a photo montage that showed him kissing, hugging and embracing famous politicians and co-workers to push back at claims he inappropriately kissed a worker on her forehead.
“I do it with everyone,” Cuomo said. “I do banter with people. I do tell jokes – some better than others”
Cuomo, a Biden ally, visited the White House in February to discuss states’ needs during the coronavirus pandemic, just weeks before the governor became the subject of sexual misconduct claims.
Even before the AG investigation got underway, the majority of New York’s congressional delegation, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., called for Cuomo to resign in March after the allegations first surfaced publicly. Calls for him to resign renewed after the release of the report.
“No elected official is above the law,” the senators said Tuesday. “The people of New York deserve better leadership in the governor’s office. We continue to believe that the governor should resign.”
“We commend the brave women who came forward and spoke truth to power,” Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., said in a statement. “The time has come for Governor Andrew Cuomo to do the right thing for the people of New York State and resign.”
In recent weeks, Cuomo had questioned the independence of the investigators. And his office has suggested James, a fellow Democrat, is interested in a run for governor herself, something James has not said publicly.
The report – which includes some previously unreported allegations – followed a five-month investigation. It contends Cuomo and his senior staff retaliated against at least one former employee, fostered a toxic workplace that enabled the harassment to occur and created a hostile work environment.
Among those Cuomo was found to have harassed included several members of his staff, a state trooper who was part of his security detail, an energy company employee, and a Department of Health doctor who administered a coronavirus test on him live on television last year.
“I believe these women,” James said, calling the claims “substantiated” and “corroborated” but saying it is up to Cuomo whether he resigns. “That decision is ultimately up to the governor of the state of New York.”
