Cuomo Signed Law That Could Make HIM Liable

Andrew Cuomo signed a law in New York that could actually make him personally liable for his own transgressions.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

The bill, signed into law in 2019, says harassment need not be “severe or pervasive” to be considered unlawful; any action that rises above “petty slights and trivial inconveniences” can qualify. If a male supervisor makes a female employee uncomfortable by asking her out to lunch, one New York employment lawyer told the Washington Free Beacon, “that could be the basis for a claim.”

Cuomo is the latest liberal to fall prey to liberalism’s evolving standards of sexual misconduct. As more women have come forward in the face of the MeToo movement, more men have found themselves on the hook for behavior once deemed unobjectionable. Left-leaning figures, from Chris Matthews to Aziz Ansari to Neil deGrasse Tyson to Garrison Keillor, saw their careers falter or implode over ambiguous accusations, causing some to wonder whether MeToo had gone too far. If the bill he signed is any indication, Cuomo did not share those concerns.

The governor’s alleged transgressions far exceed the standard set by the 2019 law. His first accuser, Lindsey Boylan, said Cuomo invited the former aide to play strip poker on a government plane, made suggestive allusions to Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, and kissed Boylan on the lips without her consent. His second accuser, Charlotte Bennett, said the governor indicated interest in a sexual relationship with her while she was working in his office as a health policy adviser. Bennett, who is 25, told the New York Times Cuomo asked her if she’d “ever been with an older man,” adding that “age doesn’t matter” in relationships.

The bill also eliminates a key defense Cuomo might have used in court. Under federal law, an employer can avoid liability if their employee never filed a formal complaint about the harassment. Neither Boylan nor Bennett filed such a complaint, though Bennett did relay her concerns to the governor’s chief of staff. But under the law Cuomo signed, the absence of formal complaints “shall not be determinative” of liability. An employee can win even if she did not avail herself of an internal grievance procedure.

It took sexual harassment for the calls for his resignation to grow, not the murder of countless nursing home residents.

Time to be held accountable for your actions – no one to blame – Just look in the mirror. You made bad decisions when there was help offered that killed many of our Senior Citizens in Senior Homes due to your self serving political Democratic interests, bad call! You are at fault and should be held accountable later! Then all the while, you were harassing these young ladies – Have you no shame?

Resignation is the easy way out for this thug. He needs to be brought to justice for the nursing home deaths plus the sexual harassment charges. Let’s make this all legal so we can get rid of hm once and for all. Please hurry!! We’re sick of him and his arrogance. Now I’m wondering what bad stuff did he do to Sandra Lee? Turns my stomach to even think about that-sexual predator and a pervert.

As a solid conservative, I believe that the rule of law should be applied equally, equitably, and fairly. If grievances are claimed, they should be properly investigated (political witch hunts are not proper), processed through valid legal procedures, submitted through a trial with a jury of peers, and prescribed punishment meted out. Make no exceptions for status, political affiliation, age or gender or religion, or anything else except mental ability to know right from wrong.

I’ll bet the law either won’t apply to him or will just be ignored and he will get off free as a bird just as soon as we find another distraction.
