JUST IN: Westchester County Will Not Criminally Charge Andrew Cuomo Over Allegations of Sexual Misconduct

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.28.21

From Fox News:

The district attorney’s office in Westchester County, New York, announced Tuesday that former Gov. Andrew Cuomo will not be criminally charged for two sexual misconduct allegations against him, despite “credible evidence” that such events occurred.

“Our investigation found credible evidence to conclude that the alleged conduct in both instances described above did occur. However, in both instances, my Office has determined that, although the allegations and witnesses were credible, and the conduct concerning, we cannot pursue criminal charges due to the statutory requirements of the criminal laws of New York,” Westchester County DA Miriam Rocah said in a statement.

Rocah added that the decision not to issue criminal charges against Cuomo is unrelated to any potential civil liability, which is beyond the jurisdiction of a district attorney.

According to New York Attorney General Letitia James’ report, the allegations related to Westchester County involved a female state trooper in his security detail who alleged that Cuomo asked to kiss her. She said she obliged because she feared the consequences of denying the governor’s request.

According to the report, Cuomo kissed her and “said something to the effect of, ‘Oh, I’m not supposed to do that’ or ‘unless that’s against the rules.’”

Another woman alleged publicly and to investigators for the DA’s office that Cuomo grabbed her by the arm and greeted her with a kiss without seeking her permission at a high school event.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo resigned from office Tuesday afternoon following a series of sexual assault allegations; ending months of speculation over the Democrat’s political future and the fate of the state.

“Gov. Andrew Cuomo resigned over a barrage of sexual harassment allegations Tuesday in a fall from grace a year after he was widely hailed nationally for his detailed daily briefings and leadership during the darkest days of COVID-19,” reports the Associated Press.

“The three-term governor’s decision was announced as momentum built in the Legislature to remove him by impeachment. It came after New York’s attorney general released the results of an investigation that found Cuomo sexually harassed at least 11 women,” adds the AP.

BAD APPLES: Cuomo, De Blasio UNDER FIRE for $1.5 BILLION in Amazon Kickbacks

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.14.18

Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio found themselves in hot-water this week with Big Apple residents “furious” after they discovered the two leaders agreed to $1.5 billion in taxpayer subsidies for Amazon’s new headquarters in the borough of Queens.

The prominent Democrats were accused of an “immoral waste of taxpayers’ money” as a growing number of constituents griped over the massive kickbacks as the city’s infrastructure continues to age and crumble.

“I think if the takeaway from the recent election in Queens, New York City and nationally is that we should actually step up corporate subsidies and billionaires getting billion-dollar bailouts — if that’s the takeaway, somebody’s not got their fingers on the pulse of Democrats, certainly, but people generally in this country,” New York City council member Jimmy Van Bramer.
