The Issue: The accusation by a former aide of Gov. Cuomo that he sexually harassed her on the job.
When it rains it pours, especially for Gov. Cuomo. Already on the hot seat for hiding the true number of COVID-related deaths in nursing homes, now he is accused by a former aide of sexual harassment (“Cuomo’s a pig,” Feb. 25).
The details already released are pretty bad. This could be the beginning of the end for him. He has, in essence, abused the power of his position to a great extent.
It’s about time he meets his fate in a courtroom. It seems like every day a new, ugly truth is revealed about him, so let justice be handed down against him to the fullest extent of the law.

Obviously, Cuomo did not heed the adage that you shouldn’t throw stones if you live in a glass house.
He conducted a virulent campaign against former President Donald Trump, accusing him of being egotistical, autocratic, a sexual predator, a vindictive bully and, of course, a liar.
Now it seems the chickens are coming home to roost for Cuomo, and not a moment too soon.

Cuomo is in deep doo-doo now. His directive caused the deaths of thousands of people in nursing homes. He’s been dancing around it, pointing fingers at others, and he may never answer for it.
But now a former aide has accused him of giving her an unwanted kiss on the lips — without warning. And that may be the end of him. It could be the first snowflake in an avalanche of accusations.
One scandal should have caused handcuffs to be slapped on him, and the other should have caused a solid slap in the face from an aide.
Score one for Mayor de Blasio, a fellow Democrat in the moral minority, who is calling for an independent probe of the sexual-misconduct allegations against Cuomo.
Although I find it discouraging that the left-wing media is turning a blind eye to Cuomo’s harassment charges and liberal women leaders are not demanding that aide Lindsey Boylan has a right to be listened to.
It was a different story when allegations were made against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Trump.
The American people have a right to know the full story — not the cherry-picked version that the media chooses to report.

The most revealing part of this “Cuomo is a pig” story is the hypocritical silence from the former loudmouths of the now-forgotten “Me, Too” movement.
Wasn’t it just yesterday that Harvey Weinstein was the most evil person on the planet? And Hollywood turned into judge and jury for the despicable Kevin Spacey?
Impeach this creep, now.
After causing the deaths of thousands of the elderly and trying to blackmail people into silence, we now find out Cuomo is also an accused sexual predator.
Using his power to allegedly maul a woman shows what a low-life he really is. Why isn’t his brother reporting on this?
Too bad New Yorkers don’t have the guts or brains to remove him from office. Maybe then they could save their state.
Lord Cuomo has been exposed for the corrupt bully that he is. It’s time to stop talking and start taking action.
We need to start the impeachment process immediately to have him removed from office so he cannot do any more damage to the great state of New York.
Now that Cuomo has allegedly done some very bad things that brought dishonor to his last name, it might be time to remove the Cuomo name from the Tappan Zee Bridge, which spans the Hudson River.
The “Mario Cuomo Bridge” never sounded right anyway.
