Gov. Andrew Cuomo is justified in rejecting calls for him to resign over alleged sexual harassment or misconduct, because there is no guilt by accusation in American, says legal expert Alan Dershowitz on Newsmax TV.
“First of all, the most serious allegation, the only one that alleges possible criminal conduct – groping, which in a legal concept is just a made up word – but that’s by an anonymous source,” Dershowitz decried on “Saturday Report.”

When I first read about Cuomo’s troubles, I called it as I saw it — a “political hit job” on a potential Democratic 2024 Presidential candidate.
CUI BONO: Kamala Harris, Susan Rice from Team Obama comes to mind.
Of course, he should resign on the basis of “anonymous” reports.
He’s entitled to the presumption of innocence.
I was never a fan of his politics, or some of his “if it saves one life” logic, but this feels like “politics”.
