There is little doubt remaining that the Democratic Party is in trouble, and it won’t take any trouble from outside the party to make things even worse.
Not only is the organization suffering from a major identity crisis, as centrist President Joe Biden attempts to reach out to the radical liberals who are largely fomenting the future of the Democratic ideology, but now there is indignant infighting occurring between the Washington DC clique and some of the most powerful folks at the state level.
Embattled New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is just the latest to suffer from the turbulence.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi broke her silence Sunday almost 24 hours after a second woman brought sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, calling both of the women’s charges “credible.”
“The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity,” Pelosi said in a statement provided exclusively to Fox News. “The independent investigation must have due process and respect for everyone involved.”
So, what exactly did Cuomo do?
The statement comes after a second former aide to Cuomo came forward with sexual harassment allegations just days after his first accuser made her claims public.
Pelosi, who was very outspoken in her opposition of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court over accusations of sexual assault, has not spoken publicly on Cuomo until reached by Fox News.
Charlotte Bennett, a health policy adviser in the Democratic governor’s administration until November, told The New York Times Cuomo asked her inappropriate questions about her sex life, including whether she ever had sex with older men.
Another former aide, Lindsey Boylan, a former deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to the governor, recently accused Cuomo of subjecting her to an unwanted kiss and inappropriate comments. Cuomo denied the allegations.
Cuomo is facing a litany of calls to resign, but has somehow avoided taking that step as of yet.
