    CNN's Jake Tapper has been tapped to take over Chris Cuomo's old 9pm primetime slot - the latest in a series of sweeping changes enacted by the network as it looks to shed its perception of being too liberal.  Tapper, the outlet's lead Washington anchor, will man the hallowed timeslot through this year’s midterm elections, the network announced in a statement Thursday, starting October 10 and continuing until November 11. While temporary, the job - which was held by Cuomo until he was nixed for helping brother Andrew through his sexual misconduct scandal - could become permanent if Tapper, 53, draws viewers. Ratings for the hour have suffered since Cuomo's ousting last December, with the network failing to fill the slot long associated with the host, who is set to begin a new job anchoring for non-partisan network NewNation in October.  The slot has since been manned by a series of rotating hosts, but has failed to garner the numbers it did under 52-year-old Cuomo.  It also comes days after CNN announced a 'reimagined' morning show featuring Trump-hating anchor Don Lemon - despite new CEO...

    Chris Cuomo was snapped enjoying a break at a ritzy Palm Beach hotel after CNN agreed to pay him half his $18 million contract in the wake of his dismissal.    Cuomo, 51, and wife Cristina were snapped in summer gear outside the hotel over the weekend. Jobless gym-obsessive Cuomo, 51, wore shorts and a black t-shirt that showed off his bulging muscles. He wore a pair of black shorts, black On sneakers, and a sweater tied around his waist.

    Comic and pundit Bill Maher defended ousted CNN CEO Jeff Zucker over his forced resignation for failing to disclose a relationship. Then-CNN head Jeff Zucker announced his resignation in an email to staff on Wednesday – stunning the media world. “As part of the investigation into Chris Cuomo’s tenure at CNN, I was asked about a consensual relationship with my closest colleague, someone have worked with for more than 20 years,” Zucker wrote in an email to staff. “I acknowledged the relationship evolved in recent years. I was required to disclose it when it began but I didn’t. I was wrong. As a result, I am resigning today.” On Friday night’s edition of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, I have no dog in this fight. I don’t want to be on CNN, you can’t do anything for me. I can’t do anything for him. But Jeff Zucker, powerful guy, head of CNN, resigned because he’s 56 and not married.

    CNN anchor Jim Acosta is the perfect choice — among many excellent choices — to take over the primetime time slot that was suddenly vacated by Chris Cuomo last month — even though it seems like it was years ago. There are many worthy candidates, both within and without the CNN family. For a start, there are many terrific paid contributors, like Jess McIntosh or Bakari Sellers or Angela Rye, who would make excellent hosts — at MSNBC. If CNN decided to establish a beachhead for liberal political programming, they would all fit right in. Yes, Don Lemon is a very opinionated host at 10, but his commentary, while often liberal, is more informed by his personal views than partisan ones — and by a career spent in the hard news ecosystem at CNN. It’s the sort of alchemy that takes a different form at 8 with Anderson Cooper, one with which Cuomo never really fit in. While opinionated, Cuomo was more adherent to the “view from nowhere” that pathologically seeks “both sides” to everything. I’ve also got something...
    A top producer for Jake Tapper has been arrested as part of a criminal investigation into allegations of misconduct involving 'juvenile victims,' just weeks after another CNN producer, for Chris Cuomo was fired over similar allegations.  Rick Saleeby, a former producer for Jake Tapper's The Lead, resigned from the network after his arrest on December 18.  Fairfax County, Virginia police have launched a probe into 'serious allegations involving potential juvenile victims' and that 'detectives assigned to the Child Exploitation Squad of the Major Crimes Bureau are leading this investigation. In a video posted by far-right conservative group Project Veritas, a man the group says is Saleeby was recorded describing sexual fantasies about young girls. On Tuesday, Saleeby appeared at a Fairfax County court where members from Project Veritas confronted him, however they received no comment from him or his attorney, according to the Denver Gazette. It comes just a week after another senior CNN producer, John Griffin, was fired after being arrested on December 10 for sex crimes involving children.   SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO  Former CNN producer John Griffin, left, of Stamford, and...
    Former CNN employee John Griffin - a longtime producer for fellow disgraced network star Chris Cuomo - denied Wednesday paying a Nevada woman $3,000 to fly a nine year-old girl to Vermont to be sexually assaulted. Griffin, 44, pleaded not guilty during a U.S. District Court arraignment in Vermont to three charges of child sex trafficking. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted. Griffin was arrested earlier this month after being indicted by a federal grand jury on the counts, with one relating to a young girl who stayed with a woman at his Vermont home last year. He is being held without bail after U.S. Attorney for the District of Vermont Nikolas Kerest on Monday filed a motion for detention, asking a judge to him locked up. 'Griffin has tried to deceive, delete, and spend his way out of being held accountable,' the prosecutor wrote. 'He is a wealthy man who will be desperate to avoid facing justice.

    Sickening new details have emerged from a new court filing related to the case of disgraced CNN producer John Griffin, including allegations that the father-of-three had made attempts to pay off witnesses, offered a woman $30,000 for a mother-daughter weekend with him, and was caught on video standing in his underwear next to a naked nine-year-old girl. Griffin, 44, Chris Cuomo's long-time producer, was arrested earlier this month after being indicted by a federal grand jury on three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity, among them a nine-year-old girl who had stayed with her mother at the suspect's Vermont home last year.  U.S. Attorney for the District of Vermont Nikolas Kerest on Monday filed a motion for detention, asking a judge to keep Griffin in jail pending trial.

    Chris Cuomo's CNN producer John Griffin hosted sleepovers and pool parties with friends of his three young children while being investigated for sexually assaulting a nine-year-old girl. A Connecticut man who knows the Griffin family told of his disbelief that the suspected pedophile was free to interact with children while authorities spent 17 months probing the case. Griffin, 44, and his wife Allyson, 46, hosted children's parties at their colossal $4 million mansion overlooking Long Island Sound in Wilson Point, Connecticut. 'The Griffins have young children, and those young children have friends,' the resident told Fox News. 'I know someone who is friends with their daughter and went to a pool party at their house last summer, and he [Griffin] was there.'  Griffin was charged in Vermont in October 2020 for drink driving after smashing into another car. Federal authorities were made aware of allegations of sex abuse and the month before his car crash they seized 'computers, storage media, devices, phones, cameras, MicroSD cards, images and video' from the suspect CNN presenter Chris Cuomo horsing around with producer John Griffin when...
    A Nevada woman has been accused of flying a nine-year-old girl across the country to be sexually abused by disgraced CNN producer John Griffin in exchange for more than $3,000. Police in Henderson, Nevada, arrested 48-year-old Heather Carriker in August 2020 on two counts of child abuse, two counts of sexual assault against a child under 14 and one count of lewdness with a minor under 14, according to 8NewsNow.

    WARNING: SOME DETAILS FROM INDICTMENT MAY BE DISTURBINGThe liberal networks are once again shielding CNN by not covering its latest scandal surrounding the network's recently fired producer who's been accused of child sex crimes.   John Griffin, a former senior producer on CNN's long-struggling morning program "New Day," was charged Friday by a grand jury in Vermont with three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity."   He has since been fired by CNN.  CNN FIRES SENIOR PRODUCER CHARGED WITH INDUCING MINORS FOR SEX However, the growing legal drama was brushed under the rug by CNN's media allies.   MSNBC, CNN's closest liberal rival on cable, has not mentioned Griffin once since his arrest Friday, according to transcripts.

Additionally, CNN did not address the controversy on the air.  CNN senior producer John Griffin was charged by a grand jury in Vermont Friday "with three counts of using a facility of interstate...

    A CNN staffer has been accused and charged with luring a mom and her young daughter to his home in order to “train” her to be sexually submissive, the Daily Mail reported Saturday. “John Griffin, who worked on the CNN show New Day, was charged with three counts that he used a ‘facility of interstate commerce to abuse underage girls,'” the outlet said. Told them a woman is a woman regardless of her age Posted by Daily Mail on Saturday, December 11, 2021 A grand jury in Vermont indicted the 44-year-old, who is from Stamford, Connecticut, of trying to entice the girls to take part in sexual activities. The U.S. Attorney’s Office District of Vermont detailed the case in a press release on Friday: According to the indictment, from April to July of 2020, Griffin utilized the messaging applications Kik and Google Hangouts to communicate with people purporting to be parents of minor daughters, conveying to them, among other ideas, that a “woman is a woman regardless of her age,” and that women should be sexually subservient and inferior to...
    CNN suspended one of its staffers following a federal indictment accusing him of coercing parents to allow their minor daughters to engage in sexual activity in his home. John Griffin, who according to his LinkedIn profile is a senior producer for CNN's flagship morning program "New Day," was arrested on Friday by the FBI after being charged by a grand jury in Vermont "with three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity."

    Reasonable minds may differ about the severity of Chris Cuomo using an anchorman position at CNN to help his brother Andrew survive as the governor of New York. Certainly seems mild compared to whipping America into a frenzy over the Russiagate collusion hoax, which targeted countless innocent people from President Trump on down. And minor compared to CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin masturbating on a Zoom call with co-workers. Yet any objective person can agree that the Woke Revolution eats its own. Again. The left-wing brothers were toppled by the left, not the right. Like the old saying in state politics, the “AG” in “Attorney General” often stands for “Aspiring Governor.” Bill Clinton rose from Arkansas attorney general to Arkansas governor in the late 1970s and early 1980s. While he waited for the incumbent Democrat governor to eventually move on, the “woke” class doesn’t. It attacks in any direction to gain power in the name of social justice. Once elected in 2018, New York AG Letitia James immediately went after Trump over state tax returns and old news. While her office roiled the...
    Former Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was accused of throwing fruit at his staff by a former staffer, according to a report from Politico on Monday. Cuomo, who resigned in August amid a flurry of sexual harassment allegations, allegedly threw dried apricots at his spokesman Rich Azzopardi and another unidentified man referred to as ‘Staffer #6′ when he found out they submitted an old headshot of his to NY1, according to testimony from Democratic New York Attorney General Leticia James’ report published by Politico. The Cuomo adviser interviews: Lip kisses, dried apricots and hand sizes https://t.co/w0ojsix9pL via @politicony — Michael Kink (@mkink) November 30, 2021 “He told me to get Rich Azzopardi into the office, and I brought Rich Azzopardi into the office and he yelled at him for not replacing the head shot and then threw a bag of fruit at us and told us to get out,” said the former staffer in his testimony. “It was a regular sized bag of dried apricots that were probably half eaten,” added the staffer. There were no drive by...
    Seth Wenig/Getty Images Disgraced New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is reportedly considering a bid to reclaim his old position as the state’s attorney general. “People in Cuomo’s orbit are tossing it out there,” a person familiar with the situation told The New York Post on Friday. “They’re floating it … and gauging people’s reactions.” Cuomo, 63, left office in disgrace just months ago, resigning in August after current Attorney General Letitia James produced a report alleging that he sexually harassed at least 11 former staffers. He was charged in Albany City Court last month with a misdemeanor over an allegation that he groped one of the aides, Brittany Commisso, in an incident that took place inside the governor’s mansion. He’s scheduled to appear in court for that issue on Nov. 17. The position could offer Cuomo a means to preserving his family’s legacy. The New York politician served as attorney general for three years, from 2007-2010, before his 11-year tenure as governor. His father, the late Mario Cuomo, served in the governor’s mansion for an equal span of time, from 1983-94....
    Andrew Cuomo enjoyed a day out on the water with his German Shepherd mix 'Captain' after reports that he allegedly tried to give the difficult dog away and left him behind before moving out of the governor's mansion last month. The 63-year-old disgraced governor posted a photo of himself rubbing noses with the dog on Instagram Tuesday morning along with the caption, 'The fall bass run is coming & Captain is ready.' Cuomo was likely referring to the prime fishing season for bass, which feed near shallow waters in the fall ahead of the colder winter months.   The lovey-dovey display comes a month after a report surfaced alleging that Cuomo left the dog behind after he moved to his sister's house and asked his staffers if anyone wanted to keep him. Cuomo announced his resignation on August 10, a week after a report by Attorney General Letitia James recounted 11 instances of sexual harassment against women.  His term ended on August 23. He was succeeded by his lieutenant Kathy Hochul. Andrew Cuomo, 63, enjoyed a day out on the boat...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo commuted the sentences of four people convicted of murder as one of his last acts as governor. "The march towards a more fair, more just, more equitable, and more empathetic New York State is a long one, but every step forward we can take it [sic] worthwhile and important," Cuomo said in a press release. "These clemencies make clear the power of redemption, encourage those who have made mistakes to engage in meaningful rehabilitation, and show New Yorkers that we can work toward a better future. I thank all the volunteer attorneys representing clemency applicants for their dedication and service to justice." CUOMO CALLS AG PROBE ‘POLITICAL FIRECRACKER,’ TAKES SHOTS AT FAR-LEFT DEMS IN FAREWELL ADDRESS Among the sentences commuted was that of 68-year old Greg Mingo, who was convicted of four counts of second-degree murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. He has served over 39 years of a 50-year-to-life prison sentence. Three more individuals with second-degree murder convictions also saw their sentences commuted, including 66-year-old Ulysses Boyd and 59-year-old Paul Clark. Additionally, 76-year old David...

When she was isolating in Florida last year at the beginning of the pandemic, scared and lonely, Erin Davis had one thing driving her hope and racing heartbeat: Andrew Cuomo. “Cuomo was my God,” said the 36-year-old Upper East Sider, who added that she’s drawn to older men. “I was crazy for him — I thought he was shamelessly sexy.” Davis, who works as a dating coach, even threw herself a “Cuomo de Mayo” party complete with cocktails and prints of Cuomo’s wide grin during lockdown. But Davis’ fire for the governor started to melt after last week’s damning attorney general report outlined multiple instances of sexual harassment,...
    It was a sign of the times: after explaining away his sexual harassment as nothing more than a “generational” misunderstanding, a suited Andrew Cuomo strode into a helicopter leaving New York. Behind him, his 23 year-old daughter Michaela—wearing sneakers, with streaks of purple in her hair—placed a comforting hand on his back. The scene recalled the fallout of another political scandal: Chelsea Clinton holding both of her parents’ hands after her father announced his infidelity in 1998. A powerful man screwed up, and it’s up to his daughter, who’s around the same age as some of his accusers, to begin the healing process. Cuomo’s daughters—Michaela, plus 26 year-old twins Cara and Mariah—have not spoken publicly about their father’s alleged misconduct, though the disgraced governor mentioned them by name while resigning from his post on Tuesday.

Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Tucked amid the nauseating revelations contained in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ 165-page report on sexual harassment by Gov. Andrew Cuomo was a particularly striking line. Defending himself against allegations from Charlotte Bennett—a former staffer who had previously disclosed to the governor that she had survived sexual violence—Cuomo argued that because of Bennett’s experience as a survivor, she “processed what she heard through her own filter” and that “it was often not what was said and not what was meant.” In other words, the governor was claiming that experiencing sexual violence made Bennett oversensitive and out of touch with reality, to the point that she heard things he never said. The idea that survivors of sexual violence are delusional or ill-equipped to identify boundary violations and abusive behavior—a permutation of the old sexist trope of the “hysterical woman”—crops up pretty regularly. In 2018, the Washington Post banned a national politics reporter, Felicia Sonmez, from reporting on sexual misconduct after...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki shut down a New York Post reporter who tried to use the news about Gov. Andrew Cuomo to relitigate past accusations against President Joe Biden. NY Post White House correspondent and frequent Psaki gadfly Steven Nelson began his moment in the sun at Wednesday’s briefing by asking Psaki if the Biden administration favors financial reparations from China to the U.S. over the coronavirus. “Our policy hasn’t changed,” Psaki replied drily, and when Nelson tried to follow up, Psaki drew a laugh by curtly asking “Did you have another question?” That phrase is a favorite Psaki kiss-off. Nelson did have another question. He proceeded to rattle off a list of old allegations against Biden, including those that were leveled by Tara Reade during the 2020 election and repeatedly denied by Biden. Nelson then asked “Should there be an independent investigation of allegations into the president as there was into Governor Cuomo?” “Well first, I would say the president has been clear and outspoken about the importance of women being respected and having their voices heard,...
    Excerpts from recent editorials in the United States and abroad: Aug. 3 The Miami Herald on Florida Gov. Rick DeSantis banning mask mandates: Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho vowed to be guided by “science, by medical experts and public health experts” before deciding on a mask mandate for the next school year. Good. That’s what you’d expect from the leader of Florida’s largest school district in a county with high transmission rates in a state where COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations reached record numbers over the past week. However, Gov. DeSantis is forcing Carvalho and other school-district leaders to make these decisions based on the governor’s interpretation of public health, which means we’re all in trouble. Friday, DeSantis signed an executive order that essentially bans school mask mandates, prohibiting districts from violating “parents’ right . . . to make health decisions for their minor children.” School boards that dare to cross the governor can lose state funding. In other words, the governor is willing to knee-cap school districts in order to make his constituents deathly ill. Just hours before...

I actually learnt it from my mother and my father,' a defiant Cuomo said on Tuesday, referring to the late New York Governor Mario Cuomo and his widow, Matilda Cuomo.

    Photo by JIM WATSON/AFP via Getty Images. Opal Lee might be 94 years old, but she had some very current slang to share with CNN’s Chris Cuomo about her joy seeing President Joe Biden sign a bill officially making Juneteenth a federal holiday. The “Grandmother of Juneteenth” has been waiting a long time to see Juneteenth honored on a national level, and she was an integral part of helping make it a reality. Lee (pictured above, to the left of Vice President Kamala Harris) was invited to the White House by Biden to witness the historic bill signing in Washington, D.C. in recognition of her efforts. In 2016, at age 89, Lee began a walking tour through dozens of American cities, journeying from her home in Ft. Worth, Texas to Washington, hoping that “someone would notice a little old lady in tennis shoes.” She traveled 2.5 miles each day, in recognition of the two-and-a-half years it took for the news of President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation (signed Sept. 22, 1862; effective Jan. 1, 1863) to reach slaves in Galveston, Texas...

Big Apple barflies were buzzing about the state lifting the COVID-era mandate as they flocked to their favorite haunts. “Glory be to God, New York City is back,” said Michael, a 47-year-old lawyer sipping a vodka and orange juice at Killarney Rose in the Financial District. “I forgot how much I missed drinking here and chasing women,” he noted. “I feel like I’m back in college for the first time trying to remember how to talk to women.” He was one of a handful of patrons at the Irish pub around 7 p.m., including a 37-year-old...
    A group of “Cuomosexuals” have formed an online fan group for embattled Gov. Andrew Cuomo — and say they have been bombarding a state hotline set up to report allegations against to governor, according to a new report. Fans formed the Facebook page “Women for Governor Cuomo” about a month ago — with some members urging people to confront his accusers online, attend pro-gubernatorial rallies and help fund supportive ads, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday. The group boasts more than 1,100 followers, mostly women over age 55, some of whom say they have been calling the hotline and leaving messages in his defense. “Support for the governor is what brought us all together,” said Pamela Morley, a 41-year-old upstate theater director who serves as one of the Facebook group’s moderators. Cuomo, a divorced 63-year-old dad, has been accused of inappropriate sexual behavior, including groping and kissing, by a slew of women, many former aides. The governor — who gained a large mainly female following, dubbed the “Cuomosexuals,” over his once-daily COVID-19 briefings — has vehemently denied any wrongdoing. He...
    CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon defended, at length, the police officer who shot and killed 16 year-old Ma’Khia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. At the top of Wednesday night’s edition of CNN Tonight, the hosts discussed the shooting of the teenager by officer Nicholas Reardon, which was captured on harrowing and heartbreaking police body-worn camera footage that was released to the public shortly after the incident. The shooting occurred shortly before the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial was announced. Both hosts began by acknowledging the emotions surrounding the incident, Lemon saying “Ohio is tough, it is really, really, really tough,” and Cuomo telling viewers “It’s a hard one, I do not know how to explain this to people in a way that doesn’t make somebody very angry.” “There’s a lot of anguish, people are a very emotional right now but we’ve got to be fair about what happens when police arrived at scenes,” Lemon said, adding “It is tragic that it’s a 16-year-old girl, just as it is tragic that it’s a 13-year-old in Chicago.” But then he...
    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said Friday that if police were killing the children of white people, “this would have ended a long time ago.” Discussing the protest over the police killing of 13-year-old Adam Toledo, Cuomo said, ” like seeing black and white together. I like seeing old and young. I like seeing constituencies coming together even if they don’t share the same experience. When they get loud and yell at the police and how angry they are. Nobody says everything you are supposed to say is polite, and anybody who felt that way lost that privilege after January 6th when they did not speak about what happened there. They are taking a knee, and they are polite. When they start yelling how this is a 13-years-old kid, and he turned and had no gun in his hands, how is that right? They have every right to yell and be angry about it. I would argue if you are not angry and you are not outraged, it doesn’t have the energy that catches the ear of those in power.” Anchor Don Lemon...
    One year after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made the deadly decision to send coronavirus-positive patients to nursing homes, FOX Business’ Kennedy remembers his 365 days of blunders.  KENNEDY: One year ago today, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an edict that killed 15,000 innocent New Yorkers. So, what if he had hesitated? Sprouted a conscience? Followed the science? A lot was unknown about COVID a year ago, but it became painfully clear very quickly that old people, especially the obese and immune-compromised, were especially vulnerable. No one knew who would be spared. Hospitals were terrified they would be overrun. So, the Greater New York Hospital Association wisely greased the governor to the tune of $126,000 so the Luv Gov would send sick old people to live with healthy old people in nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. They all died. If you had a mother or father living in an assisted living facility, your heart sunk a year ago because you knew even one sick resident could take out a hearty older person, or several. And that’s exactly what happened. 15,000 people...

    Albany, New York (CNN)In the middle of arguably the most trying moment in his political career, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ventured to Mount Neboh Baptist Church in Harlem to get the coronavirus vaccine with a range of black political and spiritual leaders this week.He marked his relationships with each leader in his speech, reminded New Yorkers of the state's lengthy fight with the coronavirus and even sang "Happy Birthday" to NAACP New York State Conference President Hazel Dukes, a woman he referred to as his second mother. All of this happened before Cuomo got the coronavirus vaccine with a big smile and thumbs up.The subtext of the Harlem visit on Wednesday was not lost on many in Albany. As Cuomo faces a flurry of investigations for allegations of sexual harassment and unwanted touching, as well as his mishandling of reporting nursing home deaths during the coronavirus crisis, the governor is turning his attention to Black civil and elected leaders, many of whom have known his family for decades. And those same leaders are repaying that attention by not only...
    Fox News host Greg Gutfeld lashed out at Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo during Monday’s broadcast of “The Five.” Gutfeld said that the thousands of coronavirus nursing home deaths outweighed the accusations of sexual harassment that have been leveled against Cuomo in recent days. (RELATED: Juan Williams Defends Andrew Cuomo, Claims Texas Gov. Abbot May Have More To Answer For) WATCH: Cohost Jesse Watters introduced the segment, saying that both the governor and his brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, had had “a disastrous weekend.” Watters mocked Chris Cuomo for joking that he was “black on the inside” even as Gov. Cuomo was facing competing scandals — an investigation into his handling of nursing homes throughout the coronavirus pandemic and multiple accusations of sexual harassment. “All right. I’m not going to knock them for that. It’s a joke,” Watters said. “It’s ironic the fake racial outrage machine is boomeranging. What do you think about the Cuomo brothers and their weekend?” “They were just having fun,” cohost Juan Williams said, adding his concern that Gov. Cuomo’s career might be...
    One of the women accusing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment is calling on "bystanders" to activate and "say something," amid a statewide investigation into the allegations leveled against him. Lindsey Boylan, a former Cuomo staffer and the first to go public with her allegations against him, on Friday pointed to "bystanders," saying they can "do better. CUOMO ADMINISTRATION GRANTS NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL AUTHORITY TO INVESTIGATE ALLEGATIONS OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT AGAINST GOVERNOR "I went to bed & woke up thinking about all the bystanders that make abuse possible," Boylan tweeted. "They watch it happen. They look away. They validate the abuser with support." "We cannot change the past but we can heal & create a better future," she continued. "There are no bystanders in that better future." Boylan then called on those bystanders directly. ACCUSER'S ATTORNEY SLAMS CUOMO APOLOGY AS 'FULL OF FALSEHOODS' "Bystanders: you can be activated," she said. "You can do better. You can help make it right and end the abuse. End the abuse now." She added: "Say something. Do something." Cuomo is facing mounting calls for...
    Charlotte Bennett, a 25-year-old former aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to accuse him of sexual harassment, said during a televised interview Thursday night that she believed the 63-year-old governor propositioned her for sex during a workplace meeting. "Without explicitly saying it, he implied to me that I was old enough for him and he was lonely," the 25-year-old former Cuomo aide told CBS Evening News’ Norah O’Donnell.

(Adam Verdugo/CBS News via AP) She said the governor, at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, felt emboldened as his national profile rose amid his daily televised outbreak updates. "I think he felt like he was untouchable in a lot of ways," she told O'Donnell.  Bennett has alleged that the governor called her into his office on June 5 and told her he was lonely and looking...
    Meghan McCain told her co-hosts Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) was a “pig and a pervert” in light of the allegations of sexual harassment leveled against him by several former aides. When asked about Cuomo’s press conference addressing the accusations, McCain said, “Oh, God. I mean, first of all, he looks like he’s in a hostage video. He’s not even like really apologizing. He looks like a mechanical robot reading. If an old man, a 60-something-year-old man, is asking a 25-year-old woman would you have sex with an older man, what do you think she thinks he’s asking you to talk philosophy?” She continued, “I’m so over Cuomo. I think he’s a pig and a pervert. The big scandal is the fact that 15,000 elderly people in nursing homes died on his watch because of a mandate that he executed, and he’s trying to cover it up. I think put a fork in him on all levels.” She added, “Also Kristen Gillibrand, if, quote, ‘One critical assault claim is enough,’ as you said, as Joy keeps pointing...
    An investigation is underway. UThe third woman on Monday accused the governor of New York State of inappropriate behavior, further weakening the position of this powerful elected Democrat already accused of sexual harassment by two former collaborators. This young woman, Anna Ruch, 33, who has never been his collaborator, told the New York Times that Andrew Cuomo asked her, at a wedding in 2019, if he could kiss her, so even that she had just pushed the hand he had put on her back away. “I was so confused and shocked and embarrassed,” she told the daily. “I turned my head away and was speechless.” This testimony further complicates things for the 63-year-old governor, more criticized than ever, after being a national star for his management of the pandemic in 2020. It adds to the statements of her ex-economic adviser, Lindsey Boylan, 36, who said on Wednesday that the governor kissed her unsolicited on the mouth and suggested that she play strip poker with him. , when she worked with him between 2015 and 2018. And those of...
    There are always those looking for a reason to dismiss and malign a woman, and side with the guy she’s accusing. In the case of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s latest accuser, Anna Ruch, she wasn’t his employee and they weren’t in a workplace. They met for the first time at a wedding, where she says that he put his hand on her lower back. When she used her own hand to remove it, he grabbed her face in both hands and said he wanted to kiss her. That’s a newsworthy story because the 33-year-old is the third decades-younger woman in a week to come out with an account of unwanted contact with Cuomo, and because her story pokes serious holes in the phony “apology” the 63-year-old governor had issued a day earlier, to try and talk around the detailed, documented account of his second accuser, 25-year-old Charlotte Bennett. “At work, sometimes I think I am being playful and make jokes that I think are funny,” he said, sounding like a sad, misunderstood little boy while trying to explain away...
