Menendez on Cuomo Scandal: I Take The Allegations ‘Seriously’

Menendez on Cuomo Scandal: I Take The Allegations ‘Seriously’

March 5, 2021

Thursday on CNN’s Newsroom, Sen. Robert Menendez addressed the growing number of sexual harassment allegations against lethally incompetent New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, saying he takes them “seriously” but doesn’t “prejudge” allegations until they are verified.

“Well, I take the women’s allegations seriously,” Menendez began. “I believe, at the end of the day, it is a question for the people of New York, for its legislature, and for the governor himself to come to. And I just don’t prejudge the determination of allegations until they are ultimately verified, in which case, then, obviously, there would be serious consequences for the governor.”

Cuomo is struggling to keep his career afloat after dealing not only with the sexual harassment allegations but with the scandalous revelations that he suppressed the true numbers of coronavirus deaths in his state, stemming from his policy of dumping coronavirus sufferers into nursing homes, resulting in higher deaths than anywhere in the country.

Even Cuomo’s fellow Democrats are throwing him under the bus and calling for his resignation. So much for Cuomo touting himself as the hero of his state’s COVID response.
