Cuomo calls for outside review after second former aide alleges sexual misconduct

This is what's needed: an impartial third-party investigation.



(Reuters) - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called on Saturday for an outside review following a report of sexual misconduct allegations against him by a second former aide, compounding problems for one of America’s most well-known Democratic politicians.

Charlotte Bennett told the New York Times that Cuomo had asked her questions about her sex life, including whether she was monogamous in her relationships and if she had ever had sex with older men.

Cuomo, in a statement, denied making sexual advances. Reuters has not independently verified the account and accusations by Bennett. She worked for the governor as an executive assistant and policy advisor for nearly two years until November 2020, according to her LinkedIn profile.

“I was trying to be a mentor to her. I never made advances toward Ms. Bennett nor did I ever intend to act in any way that was inappropriate,” Cuomo said in a statement on Saturday.

1. Unfortunately This Smells FAR Different From Senator Franken's Situation, Cuomo Might Be In Trouble

I'm not one to necessarily jump to conclusions, where a Democrat is concerned, but this doesn't look good.

If he were a repub Governor, I think there would be many threads at DU calling for his head, right about now.

I'm hoping it doesn't turn out to be true, but where there's smoke there's usually fire.

11. Yep, nothing wrong with an impartial investigation.

That is what Franken wanted but didn’t get.

5. I Dunno

much about the second one, but I recently learned that the first one (Boylan), has purported what occurred HAPPENED ON A PLANE. Four of Cuomo's aides have stated that not only what she has alleged not happen, it COULD NOT have happened, given where everyone was and was not on the plane. Looks like maybe she smoked her engine before she got to the end of the first lap.

As to the second one (Bennett), during a thorough debriefing “on the facts”, Bennett made no claims of physical contact or inappropriate sexual conduct.

So far, this is looking more like a coordinated effort to bring down a governor.

I don't like to disbelieve women who report sexual harassment, but this doesn't smell right. As you noted, the first story has already been fairly well debunked. Cuomo is smart to ask for an outside review.

Take the allegations seriously and have the independent review.

20. You know... I hate to say this but maybe Pence was right

 

A man should never be alone with a woman.

In today’s world who needs the hassle.

The accusations may be true...maybe not..I don’t know but on occasion there have been false allegations.
