Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced his resignation, effective in 14 days, a week after the state attorney general's office found he had sexually harassed nearly a dozen women.

I was listening to my local public broadcasting station earlier this morning and someone made the point that Cuomo was being paid to be governor, something he wasn't able to give his full attention to right now, which meant he should resign ASAP. Glad he finally realized the inevitable and did the right thing.

Reminds me of Trump's reaction when confronted with the irrefutable evidence of his own sexual misbehavior... Oh... Nevermind.

Finally.

Can't wait to see of Elise Stefanik puts a partisan spin on this.

Her narrative has been the Dems will protect him and he won't have to leave because the Dems won't push him.

Which was already contrary to reality but that doesn't matter when you're selling BS to the rubes.

Cuomo's enemies on both sides of the aisle as well as opportunists of all stripes have seen blood in the water for months. There is no way he was going to survive this. The handwriting has been on the wall since the get-go.

Breathtaking hypocrisy: Trump sycophants have no standing to demand that Cuomo resign

Stefanik wants Cuomo arrested but she defends Trump, target of many sexual misconduct claims and inciter of our first nonpeaceful transfer of power.

This is yet another example of Dems being held accountable for their misconduct.

Yet despite that the "moral Chreestian right" will still lie lie lie claiming the Dems are the immoral ones who never hold each other accountable.

Once this makes giant font front page status we'll likely see those very claims here from the likes of Phester or bellrung.

Spot on. They do not strive to be moral or ethical or empathic. Their only goal is power.

They will blissfully defend or ignore the Bloated Orange Rapists admission on tape that he sexually assaults and rapes women and then immediately scream for any democrat to resign or jailed for the exact same thing. Just another example of their thousands of hypocritical positions ranging from bribes, rape, sexual assault, violence, the budget, deficits, etc.

They have no shame, they have no honor.

In so many ways the story of Cuomo's inappropriate behavior and his resignation really is also a story of Trump's far worse inappropriate behavior and the absolute refusal of the GOP to hold him in any way whatsoever accountable. The two men are books ends, serving as a mirror on the values of Republicans versus Democrats.

I'm glad he made the right decision. For a while I was worried he wouldn't. Maybe he just needed a little time to convince himself it was the right thing. From my observation point, and I don't live even close to New York, he seems to have done a pretty good job as governor. As disappointing as it is that he engaged in inappropriate behavior with those women, and let's all hope they are able to get on with their lives, at least he's showing respect for the dignity of the office by resigning.

Why garden shears? I would think a shovel, a plow, a bucket, high rubber boots, a flat bottom boat... There are a lot of implements I would use to describe dealing with large amounts of feces before garden shears. I just don't think they'd be that effective as a tool or a metaphor.

Facts are all here. Cuomo was accused of sexual harassment. A DEM AG launched an investigation. A DEM President said he should resign. DEMS launched an impeachment.

Matt Gaetz is still in office and Republicans have done nothing. Trump investigations were blocked time and again by Republicans and no calls for resignation over his sexual assaults. And you ran another pedo in Albama for Senate.

Just say it: You are perfectly okay with sexual harassment, sexual assault, and pedos if they are Republicans.
