(ThePatriotSource.com)- Things are looking real bad for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, with a new letter revealing how he attempted to tarnish the credibility of one of over a dozen women accusing him of sexual assault and harassment.
It’s so damning that even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is joining calls for the Democratic governor to resign.
The New York Times revealed this week how Cuomo and his staff wrote a letter accusing Lindsay Boylan, one of the women accusing him of sexual harassment, of engaging in a “political retribution” campaign. The Times said that the initial plan from Team Cuomo was to get women in the city of Albany to sign a letter supporting the assertion, but that the document was eventually shelved and nobody ever signed it. It was described as a “full-on attack on Ms. Boylan’s credibility.”
Boylan is currently running for the Democratic nomination for Manhattan Borough President.
But with so many other women coming forward, Cuomo’s team appears to have backtracked, knowing how badly it would look if he refuses to believe accusers. Even President Joe Biden said during an interview with George Stephanopoulos that Cuomo’s accusers “should be believed.”
The Times revealed that the letter claimed: “weaponizing a claim of sexual harassment for personal political gain or to achieve notoriety cannot be tolerated.”
That doesn’t sound like “Believe all women,” does it?
One draft of the letter, which went through multiple rounds of editing before eventually being shelved, even included excerpts from a text message conversation with Boylan, in an effort to prove she was acting maliciously.
On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joined Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a host of other Democrats in calling for Cuomo’s resignation, claiming that his accusers were “criminal.”
So far, we haven’t heard a thing from Vice President Kamala Harris, who famously claimed during the last presidential campaign that she believes Joe Biden sexually assaulted Tara Reade in the 90s.
As his world crumbles around him, Governor Cuomo is going on as normal, refusing to resign and patting himself on the back for his work tackling the COVID-19 pandemic.

– Public-facing government & public employees
– Nonprofit workers who provide public-facing services
– Essential in-person public-facing building service workers

At this point, is Cuomo only hanging on to protect his lucrative book deal with Random House, and the constant (and undeserved) praise he has received for his handling of the pandemic?
It must be tough to see a manufactured legacy destroyed in a matter of weeks…
