(ReliableNews.org) – Two former aides of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) have now accused him of sexual harassment. On March 1, State Attorney General Letitia James said she could move forward with an investigation into the allegations. Although many people are calling for the governor to resign, one voice is notably absent from the conversation.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has recently said the women who came forward showed “tremendous courage” and demanded they be “treated with respect and dignity.” The senator who is known for her work with the #MeToo movement said she supports the investigation into Cuomo, but hasn’t called for his resignation.
Cat got your tongue @SenGillibrand ???
“When it comes to taking on Cuomo, Gillibrand can’t seem to find the courage…No mention of the women either, not even to praise their ‘bravery’ as politicians who don’t know quite what to say typically do.” https://t.co/LzzxKS6pSf

What’s particularly odd about her behavior is that she is the same senator who called for former Senator Al Franken (D-MN) to resign. Her refusal to hold Cuomo to account is leading to allegations against her that she has a double standard now that a leader in her state is the accused. Her silence is deafening.
