dems are bothered more by sexual harassment of a few women than they are the killing of 1000’s of elderly

Andrew Cuomo completely mismanaged the COVID crisis. His ineptitude caused the deaths of thousands of elderly. He ordered nursing homes to accept COVID positive patients and sounded very crass

“Older people, vulnerable people, are going to die from this virus,” Cuomo added. “That is going to happen despite whatever you do, with all our progress as a society, we can’t keep everyone alive. Older people are more vulnerable.  That is a fact that is not going to change.”

Worse, he lied about it.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide confessed privately this week that the administration suppressed the true COVID toll in the homes. She also offered an apology — not to the thousands of New York families who needlessly lost loved ones thanks to her boss’s mismanagement but to Democratic lawmakers put in a difficult “political position with the Republicans” by the coverup.

Then he became dismissive about the elderly deaths

“New York State, we’re only about 28%, only, but we’re below the national average in number of deaths in nursing homes — but who cares?” he asked. “Thirty-three, twenty-eight, died in a hospital, died in a nursing home, they died.”

Personally, I am surprised that the coverup of the NY nursing home deaths hasn’t drawn its own criticism.

Isn’t the saying “It’s not the crime, but the coverup”?

AND, I’m also absolutely flabbergasted that there has NOT been and avalanche of wrongful death suits against all involved.  Guess the ambulance chasers are afraid of reprisals from the politicians and bureaucrats!

Alan Dershowitz to Newsmax TV: Cuomo ‘Should Stick to His Guns’

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”.
