So, where are:
- Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, D-N.Y.?
- Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.?
- The National Organization for Women (NOW)?
- Vice President Kamala Harris?
- U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.?
- And . . . Hillary Clinton? . . .
…Now that Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., has been accused of sexual harassment by two young female former staffers?
They are hiding in plain sight, unwilling to take on a major Democratic icon.
Gillibrand, the Senator from Cuomo’s New York, led the charge that ousted Minnesota Sen. Al Franken on similar charges (although before he entered politics). But on Cuomo, we only hear the sounds of silence.
And where are the Democratic senators who demanded the withdrawal of the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh after fanciful charges of harassment by women who suddenly retrieved the memory of their and his college days.
The feminist versions of the Salem Witch Trials continue, but not for powerful Democrats like Cuomo and, for that matter, Joe Biden.
Hillary Clinton won’t open her mouth.
She is in deep cover awaiting and dreading whatever Maxwell will testify took place in her relationship with Bill Clinton.
Cuomo is likely mortally wounded by his callous treatment of the elderly in New York State nursing homes where he ordered that patients with active Covid infections be transferred from hospitals to long term care facilities where vulnerable seniors lived.
Then, when thousands died — and his order was exposed — he allegedly lied about the deaths and manipulated the statistics to deceive federal investigators. (I recount this story for the benefit of readers of The New York Times, since the newspaper of record failed to cover these charges).
When will sexual harassment at the workplace be taken seriously rather than just affording ambitious politicians a way to demean their partisan opponents? Until it is more than just a political football, the problem issue will not go away.
