Whitmer Outraged by ‘Culture of Misogyny’ But Soft on Cuomo

Whitmer Outraged by ‘Culture of Misogyny’ But Soft on Cuomo

August 5, 2021

Tyrannical Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who had previously lamented a “longstanding culture of misogyny” in Lansing, failed to condemn sexual harasser New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Wednesday after a damning report detailed allegations of sexual harassment.

“It’s really depressing, honestly,” Whitmer had said in March about the state political environment that she characterized as “rife with sexism.”

“This culture hasn’t changed. This isn’t new,” she added. “What is new is that there’s a bold set of women in the workforce that aren’t going to take it. They are documenting and they are speaking their truths, and that I find a great deal of inspiration in.”

But when the report on Cuomo by New York Attorney General Letitia James was released on Tuesday, Whitmer only mused weakly, “At this point in time I think, you know, uh, a resignation probably makes sense because I don’t know how you govern, uh, with, with so many people have lost faith and confidence.”

Now imagine that the same allegations were leveled at, say, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis. Whitmer’s judgment would be swift and merciless.
