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.

Whining baby Ted Cruz attacks his neighbors for releasing private text messages about his vacation

It's going to be a little tense in the Cruz neighborhood for a while.

“Here’s a suggestion: Just don’t be assh*les,” Cruz fumed. “Yeah, like, just, you know, treat each other as human beings have some degree, some modicum of respect.”

Imagine, those words coming from Ted Cruz's lips! The irony!!

A bitter Senator Ted Cruz launched into a profane rant against his neighbors for leaking private chat transcripts about his infamous trip to Cancun to the press. The group chat was started by Cruz’s wife Heidi Cruz in which she informed them of the family’s plans to escape snowstorm-stricken Texas to stay on the warm beaches of Cancun.

“I will say, Heidi was pretty pissed at that,” Cruz said during an appearance on the “Ruthless” podcast hosted by former Mitch McConnell campaign manager Josh Holmes. “She was over at the neighbor’s house yesterday, sort of walking through that… We have a number of Republicans who are neighbors but we also have a lot of Democrats, folks on our streets who put up Beto signs, which I thought was a little rude.”

Cruz then slammed his neighbors for being so disrespectful toward him.

“Here’s a suggestion: Just don’t be assh*les,” Cruz fumed. “Yeah, like, just, you know, treat each other as human beings have some degree, some modicum of respect.”
