(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Far-left New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for the resignation of her state’s Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo, after over a dozen women came forward and accused him of sexual assault.
Ocasio-Cortez even referenced that shocking revelation that his office purposely hid data showing how many people died of COVID-19 in nursing homes after he issued an order to send infected patients to the facilities in March last year.
“After two accounts of sexual assault, four accounts of harassment, the Attorney General’s investigation finding the Governor’s admin hid nursing home data from the legislature & public, we agree with the 55+ members of the New York State legislature that the Governor must resign,” she said.
About time, too. Any longer and people would have been questioning her double standards about believing all women.

Rep. Jamaal Bowman, another Democrat from New York, issued a joint statement with AOC, describing how two people have accused Cuomo of sexual assault and six have accused him of sexual harassment.
“The fact that this latest report was so recent is alarming, and it raises concerns about the present safety and well-being of the administration’s staff,” they said.
AOC has much more sway in the Democratic Party when she calls for a colleague to resign than she does for the Republicans. When she called for the resignation of Texas Senator Ted Cruz she was laughed out of the room, but this time, things are different.
Cuomo insisted this week that he won’t resign over the harassment allegations, but if the pressure ramps up from other far-left members of Congress, he might not have much of a choice.
If the party wants him out, they’ll get him out.
On Friday, Cuomo told a press conference that he “did not do what has been alleged, period.”
“Politicians who don’t know a single fact but yet form a conclusion and an opinion are, in my opinion, reckless and dangerous,” he said. “Wait for the facts, then you can have an opinion.”
At least AOC is consistent in believing all women…unlike Cuomo, President Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Now’s a good time to remind the world that Vice President Harris once said that she believes Joe Biden sexually abused/assaulted Tara Reade, right?
