Woman Who Says Andrew Cuomo Reached Under Her Blouse and Groped Her Breasts Files Criminal Complaint

Well, we always say: Take it to the police.

She's taken it to the police.

Or the Sheriff's office, actually.

The executive assistant who accused Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of groping her at the governor's mansion in November filed a criminal complaint on the incident with the Albany County Sheriff's Department on Thursday.

This seems suspicious:

In March, Cuomo's acting counsel, after the incident had been disclosed by the Times Union, referred the sexual assault allegation against the governor to the Albany Police Department. That referral was "highly unusual" because it was a matter that would normally be a matter handled by the State Police, Mayor Kathy Sheehan said at the time.

Seems like Cuomo wanted the matter "taken care of" by the Albany Police rather than the State Police?

Does he have friends on the Albany Police force?

Note that the Albany Police Department is different from the Albany Sheriff's Department. I believe the first is the city police, and the latter is the county police force.

Here's what this complaining witness alleges:

The report says the behavior included, "close and intimate hugs; kisses on the cheeks, forehead, and at least one kiss on the lips; touching and grabbing of Executive Assistant #1's butt during hugs and, on one occasion, while taking selfies with him; and comments and jokes by the Governor about Executive Assistant #1’s personal life and relationships, including calling her and another assistant "mingle mamas," inquiring multiple times about whether she had cheated or would cheat on her husband, and asking her to help find him a girlfriend."

Ultimately, in November 2020 the Governor's behavior escalated when he hugged the woman and then allegedly reached under her blouse and grabbed her breast.

The report says, "Executive Assistant #1 kept this groping incident to herself and planned to take it "to the grave," but found herself becoming emotional (in a way that was visible to her colleagues in the Executive Chamber) while watching the Governor state, at a press conference on March 3, 2021, that he had never "touched anyone inappropriately."

I think all the huggy/touchy/flirty stuff, and sending women roses on Valentine's Day with a signed photograph of himself, is all beneath the level of a crime or even a lawsuit, but this all establishes this guy's mindset.

Which is: All of these women love me. They want me. Therefore, anything I do, any pass I make, any breast I grope, is okay, because they like it.

Most people do not do evil while thinking, "I'm doing evil." Rather, they make up a story in their minds, a self-justifying delusion, that they're not doing evil at all.

They even convince themselves that their evil is actually... good.

So that's why I focus on some of this stuff that, admittedly, is not in itself actionable.

It shows this guy's mindset. And it makes me think, yeah, a guy like this, who considers himself some modern-day Lothario, who is proud to call himself "The Love Gov," is completely capable of doing all the things these women allege he did.

He wasn't committing a crime. Not in his own mind.

In his own narcissistically deluded mind, he was giving these women -- some, like this one, happily married -- a secret little thrill, a sexy little story they could tell their grandchildren.

I think Biden has a very similar delusion.

Related, from Tim Pool's Timcast:

CNN had reportedly offered Chris Cuomo a "temporary leave" to formally advise his brother during his sexual harassment scandal earlier this year. The offer from CNN executives came following reports in May that Chris Cuomo had advised and participated in strategy calls with his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Despite the clear conflict of interest, CNN's offer of a leave was "informal and strictly optional," according to a new report from the New York Times.

"The idea was informal and strictly optional -- not a request -- and intended as an acknowledgment of Mr. Cuomo’s unique position as both a prime-time network anchor and the brother of a prominent politician facing a scandal, according to two people who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal conversations," the Times report says.
