My cmnt: It’s now Aug 09, 2021 and Cuomo has finally resigned in disgrace. Not for forcing Covid-19 infected people into nursing homes and sentencing the current residents to death (several thousand died because of Cuomo). Not for covering-up this fiendish behavior and lying about the number of deaths. Not for being a total tool of the Left. Not for refusing to use the mobile hospitals President Trump set up just for NYC. Not for playing patty-cake with his idiot brother Fredo on CNN. But finally for officially joining the long list of democrat men who sexually and otherwise abuse women.

My cmnt: Since 2017 the list has mushroomed and by 2020 includes Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, Joe Biden and Bill Clinton. I post this list to point out that by far most of the men were democrats and were covered for by a complicit democrat press. Of course democrats don’t really care about any group of people they pretend to care about (i.e., women, children, blacks, illegal immigrants, LGBTQwerty (I’m probably not up on the latest letters to be added to this initialism)). They don’t care that powerful democrats (e.g., JFK, RFK, EMK (Teddy Kennedy), Bill Clinton and on and on) have and are sexually (and in general) abusing women, nor about children being denied an education and all the other benefits of being in school while using Covid-19 as the excuse, nor the hopelessness of inner city black people, etc.

In early October, the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke. More than month after the initial, explosive New York Times report, the long chain of dominoes it poked continues to topple as more and more powerful men face accusations of sexual harassment and assault. Nearly every day a new allegation comes to light, thanks in part to the strength that accusers of all genders have found in listening to each other’s stories and sharing their own.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of everyone who has been accused. But this chronological list is an attempt to track who’s been accused so far. It will be updated regularly as new allegations come to light.
