The New York State Assembly released a long-awaited report documenting alleged abuses of power by former Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo. 

According to the report from the Assembly’s Judiciary Committee, the disgraced Governor engaged in repeated sexual harassment deployed state resources in service of his multimillion-dollar book project, and was not forthcoming about nursing home COVID deaths.  

The eight-month impeachment probe determined that the evidence of Cuomo’s sexual misconduct is “overwhelming,” adding support to the bombshell state attorney general’s report, released in August, that found he had sexually harassed at least 11 women, putting him on a path to resignation.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove), who sent the new report and a letter outlining its findings to Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (D-Bronx), said in a statement that the behavior described in the report “is extremely disturbing and is indicative of someone who is not fit for office.”

“I hope this report helps New Yorkers further understand the seriousness of the allegations that have been made and serves to guide us to a more ethical and responsible government,” Lavine said in the statement. “New Yorkers deserve no less.”

The Assembly announced the launch of the impeachment investigation in March when a chorus of sexual harassment allegations against the Governor was growing.

The report published on Monday, November 22,  suggested the Assembly lacks “jurisdiction” to impeach a governor who has already left office, potentially sparing Cuomo a humiliating public penalty that would prevent him from running for office again. Still, the probe produced a damning denouncement that could put a damper on any future campaign.

The impeachment investigation focused particularly on two of Cuomo’s dozen accusers: an unnamed state trooper and Brittany Commisso, a former executive assistant whose groping accusation led to a misdemeanor sex crime charge against the fallen Governor.

The report said the experiences of both accusers “independently satisfies the definition of sexual harassment under New York State law.” It described Cuomo’s misconduct as “extensive” and said he did not “meaningfully” respond to records requests from the Assembly.

Cuomo, a 63-year-old Democrat, has vigorously denied accusations of sexual misconduct. Rita Glavin, his lawyer, said in a statement that the Assembly had failed to provide Cuomo access to all the evidence and claimed that he was denied “due process and a meaningful ability to respond.”

The Assembly committee also has worked with law enforcement authorities in relation to the probe of Cuomo’s book bout his stewardship of the state during the coronavirus crisis, titled “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic.” According to the report, the production of the memoir may amount to a violation of ethics laws.

The Assembly committee is also cooperating with law enforcement on the issue of COVID nursing home death tallies from Cuomo’s administration. The data became a sticking point for Cuomo last January after state Attorney General Letitia James issued a report detailing incomplete data released by the state.

The report concluded that Cuomo and his staff “were not fully transparent with the public regarding the number of COVID-19 deaths among nursing home residents.”

  1. “The report published on Monday, November 22, suggested the Assembly lacks “jurisdiction” to impeach a governor who has already left office, potentially sparing Cuomo a humiliating public penalty that would prevent him from running for office again.” THIS IS PURE POLITICAL CORRUPTION AT ALL LEVELS. The Legislator is elected by the voters/citizens as their representatives. Therefore the voters are being told they have no jurisdiction over a corrupt governor? This is what is known as systemic tyranny and the entire state government is complicit. The citizens /voters have every right and responsibility to then change the state government operation by removing all political employees of the voters. A “republic” means that the government belongs to the PUBLIC not the elitist politicians who have so corrupted the system that it must be reformed by the people not the politicians.

  2. I agree wirh your analysis. Would you agree. yjough. that it would be dangerpus for an ordinary non- connected citizen (especially a business person) could jeopardize his/her business by complaining about the Cuomo aituation. The political retaliation could be dangerous. I am ashamed that I feel this way, but who knows what would happen?

Would you agree. though. that it would be dangerpus for an ordinary non- connected citizen (especially a business person) who could jeopardize his/her business by complaining about a situaation like the Cuomo aituation.

  4. Again we see the ridiculous nature of the elitist left that claims moral superiority over the ignorant masses they have the right to rule over. Thumping their chest while lecturing us on how we must think feel and act. Pushing agendas that would subjugate us while entrenching themselves in power only to satisfy their own personal desires. This is the result of allowing these despots to publicly shame anyone who has the audacity to disagree with them or question their right to rule. Time and again we watch these sleazy leftists cry out on the disgusting values of conservatives while they push agendas they don’t believe in themselves. They equate human lives as nothing more than pawns to enrich themselves while mocking anyone who who dares to speak against them. How many times must we see these vulgar and disgusting displays from the likes of Cuomo and his ilk before we stop the madness? Real people with real families suffered and died so this man could retain power. He knowingly forced covid cases into nursing homes and knowingly sacrificed human beings to maintain political power. This is more than just an isolated incident and some foible of an old man. This is truly evil and disgusting behavior that was until just very recently touted as a darling of the leftists that continue to try every tactic to subjugated and silence detractors. Wake up America this is what leadership looks like in the democratic party. More like the kings of old that believed they were given the right to rule by heaven above when in reality they’re just wealthy scumbag criminals that would gladly sell your ass to empower their own.

  5. What a bunch of liberal blockbusting. The left never goes after their own, unless and until well after it has little or no real impact on them.

  6. That was supposed to be “bloviating,” not blockbusting. (I forever curse glass screens and auto spell checkers.)
