Just days after standing beside Gov. Andrew Cuomo at a Yonkers event, state Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins repeated her call for the gov to go … after critics called her out.
But she couldn’t take back her words at the Yonkers PAL Center, publicly thanking the gov for “the work that we did on this budget.” Had she forgotten that she asked for his resignation back on March 7, citing the endless allegations of sexual misconduct, a toxic work environment plaguing the executive chamber and his scandalous handling of COVID-19 in nursing homes?
She’s not the only hypocrite. Last Thursday, state Sen. Todd Kaminsky (D-Nassau) and Assemblywoman Judy Griffin (D-Rockville Centre) — who’ve both called for the gov to step down — joined Cuomo at an Earth Day ribbon-cutting on Long Island.
As Queens Assemblyman Ron Kim tweeted, “Imagine if the CEO of your company is accused of sexually assaulting and groping an employee. Everything would cease until that is resolved and we have full accountability.” So: “What kind of message are we sending to young women workers in government” with these joint appearances?
If you think the guy should go, folks, don’t play along with his efforts to pretend nothing’s up. That’s known as “enabling,” and it makes you part of the problem.
