Will Cuomo's political career survive? (POLL)


My take - Trump wants him out of office so his rethug successor can pardon him.

Trump did not resign over countless accusations.

The AG brought the nursing home investigation. The three staffer worked for him. The NY politicians asking for him to resign are in the Democratic Party.

Last I checked there are now 3 R's jumping on this campaign wedge.
Even tho none uttered a word about Trump.
But hey, it's an election goldmine!

with no indication that she would be less than fully on board with Trump prosecutions. Are you projecting into the next election? If so, even assuming a Republican would win the governorship, the timing seems rather unlikely for a prosecution-preventing pardon. The investigations culminating in the grand jury are ongoing NOW--not beginning 18-24 months from now.

It's part of our new era of politics where operatives no longer wait for useful narratives to emerge from the unfolding facts, but instead invent narratives out of thin air and make them stick with pure endless repetition.

is investigating Trump. The Governor has no power to stop anything the AG does. So it doesn’t matter who the Governor is.

for any and all state charges. I assume they are hypothesizing the Lt. Gov (should Cuomo leave office) would be susceptible to pressure from Trump supporters to do so (crazy) or that a Republican potentially elected as Governor in 2022 might do so. Again, my earlier post addresses these issues which I don't believe to be realistic as an issue.

Funny how quickly political fortunes turn. Last year, some people were bemoaning the fact that he wouldn't be the VP pick because Biden vowed to choose a woman. It all turned out for the best.

she and Cuomo, when he was a cabinet secretary,where at an event where there was dancing and they danced and he held her too tight and allegedly felt his sexual arousal and yada, yada. yada. We all know the deal by now. This was years ago before the me_too movement, and how she comes out.

Will there be another shoe to drop? I don't know about this new one, or the second one who said it was "text book sexual abuse" when what she described was sexual harassment at worst. And she's a person with several years of sexual harasment/abuse counceling training. Why would she do that? That makes me doubt her since she obviously put the worse spin the alleged incident as possible.

Get the investigation going already.

in order to get a governor more likely to let Trump off. If so, it is a shame that Democrats are participating.

I think he stays, but may not run in 2022.
