Andrew Cuomo ‘Truly Sorry’ if Words, Actions Were ‘Misinterpreted’

by SIMON KENT – 1 Mar 2021 – for Breitbart.news

My cmnt: So many democrat men, as they age and achieve some measure of political or commercial power, think that the young women they hire actually are attracted to them sexually. This is simply part of the delusions they live under in most of their waking minutes. And when they are removed from power they feed their sexual fantasies with underage girls like Epstein and Clinton did. When conservatives tell democrats that porn is damaging to both the viewer and the viewed they respond by claiming that porn is a freedom of expression issue. When conservatives question O’Biden’s mental capacity or present valid arguments that the 2020 election was stolen they are told to stop speaking, they are cancelled by Big Democrat Tech monopolies, they are silenced and vilified. Their valid conversation is declared by these phony guardians of public life to be hate speech or White privilege or conspiracy theories – the Constitution be damned.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday night he was “truly sorry” if “some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation,” as he sought to rebut claims by a former aide she was sexually harassed by him.

“To be clear I never inappropriately touched anybody and I never propositioned anybody and I never intended to make anyone feel uncomfortable,” the 63-year-old said in a statement released by his office, adding he had teased people about their personal lives in an attempt to be “playful.”

“I now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended. I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation. To the extent anyone felt that way, I am truly sorry about that,” he said.

Cuomo’s claim of innocence came after he asked the New York state’s attorney general and chief judge to appoint an independent investigator to examine the allegations of sexual harassment made against him.

Cuomo aide Charlotte Bennett alleged he made several inappropriate remarks about her sex life, as Breitbart News reported.

Bennett claimed Cuomo asked her questions about her sex life during a conversation in his State Capitol office in June. The 25-year-old former executive assistant and health policy adviser to Cuomo said he was open to relationships with women in their 20s.

Last week, Lindsey Boylan, a deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to Cuomo from 2015 to 2018, said the governor “sexually harassed me for years” in a post on Medium.

Cumo’s partial admission of wrongdoing came after a day of wrangling over just who should investigate his workplace behavior.

By day’s end, Cuomo acquiesced to demands that Attorney General Letitia James control the inquiry.

James said she expected to receive a formal referral that would give her office subpoena power and allow her to deputize an outside law firm for “a rigorous and independent investigation.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki, said on CNN’s State of the Union, said: “There should be an independent review of these allegations. They’re serious. It was hard to read that story as a woman. And that process should move forward as quickly as possible and that’s something we all support and the president supports.”

Also, she said Joe Biden believes Bennett and Boylan “should be treated with respect and dignity.”

  1. How many decades has it been since brazenly ‘apologizing’ on behalf of other people you *pretend* to represent but in reality you don’t became acceptable and normal in the public culture? An estimation of at least 25 years is a first guess.
