A Cuomo brother has been accused of sexual harassment.
This time, nevertheless, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo isn’t the one underneath the gun.
As a substitute, in a Friday Op-Ed for The New York Times, veteran tv journalist Shelley Ross revealed that Chris Cuomo — CNN anchor and brother of Andrew Cuomo — was the one who sexually harassed her.
Apparently, it runs within the household.
Ross was Cuomo’s boss at ABC Information “practically 20 years in the past” and, at a 2005 going-away celebration for an ABC colleague, she stated he groped her.
“… [H]e walked towards me and greeted me with a powerful bear hug whereas reducing one hand to firmly seize and squeeze the cheek of my buttock,” Ross wrote.
“‘I can do that now that you just’re now not my boss,’ he stated to me with a type of cocky vanity. ‘No you possibly can’t,’ I stated, pushing him off me on the chest whereas stepping again, revealing my husband who had seen your entire episode at shut vary. We rapidly left.”
It wasn’t too lengthy after that Ross obtained an electronic mail from Cuomo with the topic line “Now that I consider it … I’m ashamed.”
Within the electronic mail, Cuomo profusely apologizes and makes an attempt to play off the incident by portray it as merely a consequence of how joyful he was to see Ross. Cuomo doesn’t take accountability for his actions; he merely creates excuses:

“although my hearty greeting was a perform of being glad to see you,” he wrote, “christian slater bought arrested for a (type of) related act (although bourne of an alleged unfavourable intent, not like my very own) … and as a husband i can empathize with not liking to see my spouse patted as such …”
“so go alongside my apology to your excellent and noble husband … and that i apologize to you as nicely, for even placing you in such a place … subsequent time, i’ll bear in mind the lesson, regardless of how joyful i’m to see you …”
You’ll suppose if Cuomo actually cared a lot, he wouldn’t offer up so many excuses.
Additionally, if he cared a lot, he’d most likely be utilizing correct punctuation and capitalization.
Ross sensed as a lot, noting in her Op-Ed that she’s “all the time seen” his written apology as “an try to supply himself with authorized and ethical protection to evade accountability.”
He have to be fairly good at doing so, provided that he additionally advised his brother throughout the former governor’s personal sexual harassment scandal.
In the long run, each Cuomo brothers are all the things they accuse Republicans of being.
They’re each wealthy, privileged males who prey on others to meet their twisted wishes.
They’re predators and, lastly, the time has come for the Cuomos to face accountability.
