1. What about the inquiry? Maybe it happened, maybe it didn't, but post-Franken, I want to hear the

whole evidence.

18. Same here

If there's substance to the accusation he should go but let's find out for certain first.

2. Probably extreme

His career is probably over. I'm not sure anything of which he has either admitted or been accused is cause for quitting his job. He may need some sort of "behavior czar" for the duration of his time in office.

13. Long Island Democrat Leading The Revolt Against Speaker Pelosi (Rice is a centrist, not a lefty)

https://www.wnyc.org/story/long-island-democrat-leading-revolt-against-speaker-pelosi/

The biggest project of Kathleen Rice’s two terms in Congress has been trying to convince House Democrats to choose a new leader.

Democrats vote Wednesday on their choice to lead the House when they take control in January, and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi is expected to win another shot at Speaker.

But Rice, a former Nassau County prosecutor, says Pelosi keeps a heavy hand on caucus decisions and has blocked other Democrats from advancing. She says a vote for Pelosi is even more of a liability now, with a new majority built on moderate women from the suburbs. “And I just don’t understand why you would want to jeopardize this hard-fought majority that we finally got,” Rice said to reporters at the Capitol this month.

Many of the newly-elected Democrats promised to oppose Pelosi on the campaign trail, Rice said, and are now being asked to break that promise and vote for Pelosi. That's because if Pelosi wins the nomination Wednesday, she may need their votes when the House meets in January to become Speaker.

Democrats will have at least 233 members (one California race is still counting votes) and 16 Democrats have signed a letter opposing Pelosi. That puts Pelosi dangerously close to falling short of the 218 votes needed, if every member of the House votes. That puts newly elected members on the spot.

9. I saw an article today that compared Cuomo's

troubles with Trump's sex scandals. That was fucked up! Cuomo isn't being accused of raping anyone or paying anybody off. The things Cuomo is being accused of are rather commonplace. He shouldn't be forced to leave office because of this shit. He won't go any further than this in politics, anyway.

15. Ex POTUS credibly accused by 39 women

A rapist on the Supreme Court. NO CALLS TO RESIGN.
I don’t know what happened, but he should NOT resign without inquiry.

16. Jumping the gun imo.

To me 'can I kiss you' sounds like flirting unless he was lewd. He asked, doesn't sound that nefarious to me. I have not read the other accounts.

Hillary Clinton: Cuomo Sexual Harassment Allegations ‘Raise Serious Questions’


Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday supported an investigation into sexual harassment allegations against New YorkGovernor Andrew Cuomo.

“These stories are difficult to read, and the allegations brought forth raise serious questions that the women who have come forward and all New Yorkers deserve answers to,” she said in a statement.

“I’m glad to see that there will be a full, independent, and thorough investigation,” the former senator from New York added.
