Now, I don’t mean to start things off with a rant, but I am beginning to think that Andrew Cuomo might not be the perfect guy for this whole Governor of New York thing.
Give you an example, around the time I graduated high school I was working at a fast food place that had about an equal number of male and female employees. While this was unfortunately still in the time when people weren’t as rightfully sensitive about things like sexual harassment, people were still pretty in tune with the type of things that weren’t considered ok.
We had a guy once that eventually got what we used to call fired through omission. What happened was is that he was this guy that any female employee that was under 40 and that wasn’t management he would try to get with. It was horrible. The guy would pretty much perv out on any woman with a pulse.
So, eventually, the ladies banded together and told the management that they all didn’t want to work with the guy because every minute was them being harassed in some fashion. So, if they fired the guy there’d be more paperwork than if he quit. They fired him by omission. What I mean by that, is over a couple of weeks they have him increasingly more undesirable hours until he was down to one single breakfast shift from 5 am until 11 am…once a week.
They starved teh guy out basically, and it was the right thing to do so the women at our place didn’t feel uncomfortable.
It’s about damn time they do the thing to Andrew Cuomo…
Two more women, both former aides of New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, have come forward with new allegations of sexual misconduct.
Karen Hinton, who worked for Cuomo as a press aide, told The Washington Post that the governor called her to his “dimly lit” hotel room and hugged her twice following a work function in 2000. She said she pulled away from Cuomo, but he pulled her back toward his body and held onto her.
Hinton called the embrace “very long, too long, too tight, too intimate.” The married Hinton pulled away, but “he pulls me back for another intimate embrace,” she told the paper. “I thought at that moment it could lead to a kiss, it could lead to other things, so I just pull away again, and I leave.”
Cuomo at the time led the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Peter Ajemian, Cuomo’s director of communications, addressed Hinton’s allegations in a statement to the Post.
“This did not happen,” he said. “Karen Hinton is a known antagonist of the Governor’s who is attempting to take advantage of this moment to score cheap points with made up allegations from 21 years ago. All women have the right to come forward and tell their story — however, it’s also the responsibility of the press to consider self-motivation. This is reckless.”
But The New York Post notes that Hinton’s husband is lobbyist Howard Glaser, “a longtime Cuomo ally and confidante who worked as his director of state operations and senior policy advisor until 2014.”
