Governor Gropo

Gosh, he was a Democratic Party hero just a few weeks ago:

A third woman came forward on Monday to accuse New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of inappropriate sexual behavior, saying he grabbed and kissed her at a 2019 wedding.
Anna Ruch, 33, told the New York Times that the 63-year-old governor made unwanted advances toward her and planted an unsolicited kiss on her cheek at the reception in Manhattan.
“He said, ‘Can I kiss you?’” Ruch recalled. “I was so confused and shocked and embarrassed.”
The allegation comes after two former state staffers accused Cuomo of sexual harassment on the job — including one who claimed the governor kissed her without warning at his Manhattan office, which he has denied.
Unlike the other two women, Ruch has never been employed by the governor or the state, according to the Times.
Ruch, a former member of the Obama administration and the 2020 Biden campaign, said she met Cuomo at the crowded wedding reception in September 2019.
Within moments of being introduced, Ruch claims, the gov put his hand on the small of her lower back, which was exposed in an open-back dress.
“I promptly removed his hand with my hand, which I would have thought was a clear enough indicator that I was not wanting him to touch me,” she told the Times.
But the governor apparently didn’t get the hint.
He allegedly noted that Ruch seemed “aggressive” — and then placed his hands on her cheeks and asked if he could kiss her, loudly enough for a friend of Ruch’s to hear, according to the report.
“I turned my head away and didn’t have words in that moment,” Ruch said.
Ruch said she was so shocked, she had to ask a friend whether the gov’s lips had actually touched her face as she was pulling away. She was told that he kissed her cheek.
The pal captured the creepy encounter in a series of photographs, including one Ruch also provided to The Post that shows Cuomo grasping her face.
“It’s the act of impunity that strikes me,” Ruch said. “I didn’t have a choice in that matter. I didn’t have a choice in his physical dominance over me at that moment. And that’s what infuriates me.”

See, there was a time — in the 1980s, when Cuomo was the strutting young scion of a political dynasty and Donald Trump was still a Manhattan real-estate mogul — that a guy could make a move like that and the worst he risked was maybe getting punched by the girl’s boyfriend. But nobody was going to punch Andrew Cuomo back in the day, and so he got used to putting the moves on any chick that caught his eye. Well, times have changed and Cuomo is now 63 years old. On what planet does a guy his age think it’s OK to make a move on a chick 30 years his junior? I mean, flirting is one thing, but . . .

Anyway, he was becoming an embarrassment to the party, with his COVID-19 policy that killed thousands of little old ladies, and so now we have women “coming forward,” as they say, to tell everybody that Cuomo’s a creepy old pervert. Next up? The hair-sniffing Joe Biden. As soon as Biden’s dementia becomes undeniable, the women will start “coming forward” to destroy Creepy Uncle Joe.

Cynical? Yeah, but these are Democrats, remember.
