(ThePatriotSource.com)- Despite a multitude of allegations against the Democratic Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo insists that he will not resign. It comes as another woman revealed that he – allegedly – sexually harassed her.
During a conference call late last week, Cuomo said that he was “elected by the people of the state” and that he will not “resign because of allegations.”
“There is no way I resign,” he insisted.
So far, at least five women have come forward to accuse Cuomo of inappropriate behavior, sexual harassment, and more.
35-year-old Ana Liss was the fourth woman to come forward and accuse Cuomo of sexually harassing her. Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, she revealed how Cuomo asked her if she had a boyfriend, would repeatedly call her “sweetheart,” kissed her hand, and touched her on her lower back.
Karen Hinton was the fifth woman to come forward. She worked at Housing and Urban Development under Cuomo as a press secretary and told the Washington Post that she was asked to meet him at a dimly-lit hotel room in 200. Upon arrival, Cuomo grabbed her and held her for an uncomfortably long period of time.
Hinton’s account was very quickly dismissed by Cuomo spokesman Peter Ajemian, claiming that she was a “known antagonist.” Liss’s account, however, wasn’t refuted in any detail.
Despite the shocking allegations, Cuomo insists that he will not step down.

Could an elected Republican get away with no resigning after five women came forward over something so serious?
Some Twitter users discovered an old campaign clip used by Andrew Cuomo back in 2018, in which he said that New Yorkers “need a Governor who stands up for women and survivors of sexual abuse.”
The clip accused Republican nominee Marc Molinaro of refusing to say whether or not he would support sending Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, following accusations from only one woman at the time.

Double standards, much?
The most Cuomo has done so far is apologize for making people feel uncomfortable, but he also denied that he ever touched women inappropriately.
“It was unintentional, and I truly and deeply apologize for it,” he said during a press conference on Wednesday. “I feel awful about it and, frankly, I am embarrassed.”
Let’s see how many more women come forward.
