Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) on Monday denied the several sexual harassment allegations against him, claiming to have done nothing wrong despite weeks ago admitting he felt “embarrassed” for acting in ways that “made people feel uncomfortable.”

Fine, so you won’t mind being prosecuted for your handling of COVID in the nursing homes?
Ironic, seems to me one would have uttered such a denial closer to when the allegations were made. Then again in his mind, he did not do anything wrong is just rationalizing his opinion.
“I didn’t do it! I didn’t do it! Nobody saw me!”
Again, you can post more than a sentence. 250 words, at least. These blogs are replete with text-blocking ads.
“The report can’t say anything different, because I didn’t do anything wrong,” Cuomo said of the inquiry lodged by state Attorney General, Letitia James, a Democrat.
A former New York journalist lodged one of the allegations, claiming the governor sexually harassed her at a party at the Executive Mansion in 2012, placing his arm around her shoulders and keeping her “pinned” next to him “for several minutes as he finished telling his story.”
“I stood there, my cheeks hot, giggling nervously as my male colleagues did the same. We all knew it was wrong, but we did nothing,” Jessica Bakeman claimed, detailing another instance when the governor allegedly “held her body tightly while she said goodnight at a holiday party in 2014,” as Breitbart News detailed.
“He took my hand, as if to shake it, then refused to let go,” she said. “He put his other arm around my back, his hand on my waist, and held me firmly in place while indicating to a photographer he wanted us to pose for a picture.”
“He wanted me to know that he could take my dignity away at any moment with an inappropriate comment or a hand on my waist,” she continued, adding, “The way he bullies and demeans women is different.”
“He uses touching and sexual innuendo to stoke fear in us. That is the textbook definition of sexual harassment,” she said.
‘I Didn’t Do Anything Wrong’ is an opinion, and when anyone not in a greivance group (or not a powerful democrat) says ‘I Didn’t Do Anything Wrong’, they are lectured about how the victim feels. Just because you didn’t think you weren’t doing anything wrong doesn’t mean you can’t be judged as having abused, exploited, or manipulated someone in a sociological context. But these sociological contexts are heavily stratified with power classifications. Male versus female and white versus minority in claim differences would almost automatically have a skewed prejudice. The amazing thing to behold is that Cuomo being a white male and in a powerful position all cannot be trumped by the fact that he is a democrat.
Isn’t this about a month late?
...Harvey Weinstein and Anthony Weiner and...
Last year he was like their hero king in DemoRat land. Not a peep about sexual innuendo. Now that Orange man is dispatched their king has been demoted to the court jester. Scrooge the whole lot of them leftards.
Have any of the women filed police reports? Filed lawsuits?
Maybe he didn’t do anything wrong.
It looks like he’s now admitting he did it, he’s just saying there was nothing wrong with what he did. Half the battle has been won.
“Andrew Cuomo Denies Sexual Harassment Allegations: ‘I Didn’t Do Anything Wrong’”
Democrats have their own definition of what is right and wrong...just like their definition of bipartisan doesn’t include members of Congre$$...also like their definition of honest elections,i.e. we must not purge voter role as it discriminates against dead people.
By the standards of those who have no morals he is perfectly correct.
I’m glad that a big democrat is feeling what normal men have felt for years when accused of sexual harassment. Any thing a woman complains about concerning a man is now branded sexual harassment. Men have been fired for saying “You look nice” and for false accusations.
What does it feel like, cuomo?
Videos say otherwise fool.
Let’s face it! Nothing is going to happen to him. The Rats got what they want in the budget. Giving illegals around $15,000. Now they will hold him hostage in case they need anything else.
Okay, that’s a good start, Andrew. Now, tell us some of the things you said and did that made these women feel uncomfortable.
That made “people” feel uncomfortable? Are you saying you didn’t confine the victims of your behavior to women, Andrew? Okay. I can see that. You look like the type.
For Cuomo, and in his mind, “wrong” is the key to how much what he says is and isn’t a denial of any misdeeds.
It does not say “I didn’t do anything”.
And apparently Cuomo intends to follow his own opinion on whether anything he actually did do was wrong. Denial, arrogance or both.
