    As you've likely heard by now, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is resigning in the wake of allegations of utter disrespect, to put it mildly, of women on his staff. He should have resigned much earlier for his cover-up of how the state handled nursing homes during COVID-19. But on both fronts, our problems go beyond Cuomo. His behavior with women is totally in keeping with the politics of expanding abortion, in which he has been a leader -- in a place already described by some as the abortion capital of the world, no less. But while he unapologetically claims...

    Color me shocked that Gov. Andrew Cuomo knuckled under to demands he resign after a devastating report detailing his sexual harassment of 11 women. But it was not quite as shocking as reading a Washington Post report that CNN's top star Chris Cuomo was still moonlighting (or daylighting) as one of his top political advisers. Chris Cuomo should follow his big brother's example and resign. This CNN situation should be seen as untenable. Chris made a promise not to do this again. Back in May, he said, point blank, "It will not happen again. ... It was a mistake because...

    A married pastor for Hillsong Church has resigned after being caught sharing photos of his bulging manhood on Instagram - just months after the head of the church's New York City chapter was fired over his own sex scandal, DailyMail.com has learned. Darnell Barrett, a 32-year-old pastor for Hillsong in Montclair, New Jersey, stepped down from his role on Tuesday over an Instagram story he posted of himself last month wearing nothing but white Nike Pro tights. The clergyman shared two photos of himself standing in front of a mirror after a workout, with what appeared to be his engorged...

    A female reporter has claimed New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D., touched her inappropriately and made her feel uncomfortable in an attempt to impose his power on the young journalist, making her the seventh accuser to come forward with claims of sexual harassment against the governor. “I never thought the governor wanted to have sex with me. It wasn’t about sex. It was about power,” Jessica Bakeman wrote. “He uses touching and sexual innuendo to stoke fear in us. That is the textbook definition of sexual harassment.” The New York magazine piece written by Bakeman, titled, “Cuomo Never Let Me...

    Rep. Kathleen Rice has become the first New York Democrat in Congress to join mounting calls for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign after three women accused him of offensive behavior. "The time has come. The Governor must resign," Rice, a former district attorney, tweeted Monday night. Recent Stories from ABC News Rice was once a close ally of Cuomo's. In the 2010 race for state attorney general, Rice was widely believed to be Cuomo's preferred pick for the role, but he ended up endorsing her opponent, Eric Schneiderman, right before the primary. In 2013, Rice was appointed by Cuomo as...

    An apologist with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries is calling for repentance and "reparations" in response to how accusations of misconduct and other scandals were handled. In a five-page letter addressed to RZIM leadership, Max Baker-Hytch, a senior tutor with the ministry's Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics and a lecturer at Wycliffe Hall in England, wrote that he was troubled by how the organization responded to the misrepresentation of the deceased apologist's academic credentials and sexting allegations involving Lori Anne Thompson, a Canadian woman, both of which were first reported in 2017. The letter also mentioned more recent allegations that Zacharias...

    Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) has opened an investigation into allegations that its late founder and namesake sexually harassed multiple massage therapists who worked at two day spas he co-owned. Three women who worked at the businesses, located in a strip mall in the Atlanta suburbs, told Christianity Today that Ravi Zacharias touched them inappropriately, exposed himself, and masturbated during regular treatments over a period of about five years. His business partner said he regrets not stopping Zacharias and sent an apology text to one of the victims this month. RZIM denies the claims, saying in a statement to CT...

(ChurchMilitant.com) - Half of the dioceses in New York now have declared bankruptcy in the wake of clergy sex abuse, as Rockville Centre joins the mix. Encompassing much of Long Island and home to 1.4 million Catholics, the Rockville Centre diocese on Thursday filed for bankruptcy, becoming the fourth to do so in the state. The other three that have filed are the dioceses of Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse — leaving the New York archdiocese and the dioceses of Albany, Brooklyn and Ogdensburg.

    (RNS) —Jerry Falwell Jr. the embattled president of Liberty University and one of the biggest champions of President Donald Trump, has resigned, Religion News Service has learned. His resignation came within hours of the publication of a news story that alleged he and his wife Becki had a years-long sexual relationship with a business associate. Falwell had been placed on indefinite leave earlier this month after posting, then deleting, a provocative Instagram photo of him posing with his arm around a woman at a party with their zippers down and midriffs showing. After that post, Liberty University alumni and former...

    There’s a continuing scandal in a U.S. House race in Massachusetts’s First Congressional District. Will voters care? Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse has been under fire since the College Democrats of Massachusetts produced a letter last week alleging he had sexual relations with college students and used “his position of power for romantic or sexual gain.” Morse had also served as a political science lecturer at UMass Amherst, until the school ended the relationship this past weekend, after the Massachusetts Daily Collegian, the student daily newspaper at the school, published a story Friday, August 7 about the allegations. The College Democrats...

    On Friday, Trump fired the inspector general of the State Department, Steve Linick. In accordance with the 2008 Inspector General Reform Act, which protects inspectors general from being fired without cause, Trump informed Congress in writing about the intent to fire Linick, expressing that he no longer had the “fullest confidence” in Linick, who was appointed to that position in 2013 by Barack Obama. Democrats naturally have come out of the woodwork to express their faux outrage, and to launch an investigation into the firing over allegations that Trump acted to protect Pompeo. But where were these Democrats in 2009...

    Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is facing a growing sexual assault scandal, but Americans who only watch left-leaning TV networks may not have even heard about it. Biden’s former staffer Tara Reade went public with her claims on March 25, and since then new evidence has arisen, making her accusation far more credible than Christine Blasey Ford’s claims against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Yet left-leaning mainstream media outlets have nearly boycotted the story over the past month. The Media Research Center (MRC) analyzed the news coverage on ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, and PBS between March 25 and April...

Stephanopoulos asked Hill on ABC's "Good Morning America" if she regrets not fighting for her position, with Hill affirming that she "made the right call" stepping down from office. "I did not want to be a liability to my colleagues," she said. "We knew from the people who had obtained the [explicit] photos that there were hundreds more images and text messages out there that I had no idea what they could be, or taken out of context."

    WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — When the lifeless body of a 26-year-old man was found two years ago in the apartment of Ed Buck, a small-time Democratic donor and political activist, the authorities described it as an accidental overdose. Then, in January, a 55-year-old fashion consultant died in Mr. Buck’s home in exactly the same way. Once again, he faced no charges. On Tuesday, after a third man survived a methamphetamine overdose in the apartment, Mr. Buck was finally arrested and hauled away in the back of a police car. The sordid facts — and Mr. Buck’s seeming double life —...

    Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel said Thursday that it's "more likely" Jeffrey Epstein's death was a homicide rather than a suicide, following a full autopsy of Epstein's body that reportedly found broken bones in his neck. "The hyoid bone in the neck being fractured and other fractures in the neck, make it more likely, and again, this is a percentage call, more likely that it was a homicide than a suicide," Siegel said during an interview on "America's Newsroom." Siegel said he is still waiting for more information before rendering a final opinion, but expressed suspicion and skepticism...
