    This line of posts suck RJ. You are dabbling in victim blaming with the Lewinski stuff and also trying to down play Clinton's shittyness by saying Reagan was shittier. The power dynamic make Lewinski the clear victim and both men were shitty for slightly different reasons. Cuomo is also shitty.
    Birds are real.

    First of all, I am on record saying Cuomo needs to be gone and it should have happened already.

    Catamount brought up Reagan. I brought up his history. If someone brings something up, am I not allowed to directly respond to it?

    As to Clinton, I said multiple times what he did was wrong and shitty. I am not shaming Lewinsky at all.

    i am not going down the rabbit hole arguing about my opinion.

    I mean, you've posted twice that Lewinski went looking to give the prez a blow job, that is slut shaming. That places blame for the situation on her when, given the power dynamics of the situation, it was squarely Clinton's fault.

    Sure if someone brings it up you can respond, I am just saying that your response is not landing well. Defending your guy by saying the other guy was worse is not a great defense.

    I'm not saying anything about Lewinsky that she didn't publish herself. How is it "shaming" when she was bragging about it?

    By the way, I have never called her a "slut" or any other name and I won't. She has every right to do anything she wants with her own body. You shouldn't be using the term "slut". You wouldn't call a guy who likes sex a slut.

    AGAIN, Clinton should have known better and not done it. He shouldn't have done it.

He has made a public apology for unhooking a woman's bra in a restaurant in 2017, among other things. He was believed to be thinking of running against Cuomo for the governorship next year, but announced that he's not running for reelection or anything else next year.

    It was a big surprise quite frankly, though I guess in today's world it shouldn't be. Tom Reed is a family friend. My father-in-law taught him in college and they have remained close so we've gotten to know him over the past 20 years starting when he was Mayor of Corning. He always came across as a reasonable pol, despite being conservative, and part of the "problem solvers caucus" in Congress. A regular talking head across all the networks. He was absolutely going to run for Governor and has been a very outspoken critic of Cuomo's nursing home debacle well before Cuomo's own behavior issues. He was on that issues from the beginning.

    Reed was a solid representative for his district from what I saw first hand in the Southern Tier. I guess you never really know a person. My FIL is so pissed at him right now....I didn't agree with him on a majority of the issues but he wasn't a whacko by any stretch. Just evidently a very flawed man.

    I will give him credit that he owned it though he did sorta blame it on a substance abuse problem that he has since been working on.

    I guess nothing really will surprise me anymore.

    Pretty hard to blame a young single chick for sucking the presidents dick.

    Like Chappelle said. "Every chick has at least one blow job they regret, and I bet it wasn't the presidents dick either"

    Ok RJ, carry on I guess. I was just trying to help you out from “accidentally” blaming lewinski.

    You've never heard the term "slut shaming", RJ? Invoking the term to describe your post is not the same as birdman calling Lewinsky a "slut"

    He blindly flows. He assumes the other side does too. He could not be more wrong. But he's dumb. So...

    I’ll be right back. I’m just gonna go look for your posts expressing outrage over DeSantis’ vaccine parties for wealth campaign donors. It should be super quick, I’ll be right back.

    "s the coronavirus subsided in New York last year, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo had begun pitching a book proposal that would center on his image as a hero of the pandemic. But by early last summer, both his book and image had hit a critical juncture.

    Mr. Cuomo leaned on his top aide, Melissa DeRosa, for assistance. She attended video meetings with publishers, and helped him edit early drafts of the book. But there was also another, more pressing edit underway at the same time.

    An impending Health Department report threatened to disclose a far higher number of nursing home deaths related to the coronavirus than the Cuomo administration had previously made public. Ms. DeRosa and other top aides expressed concern about the higher death toll, and, after their intervention, the number — which had appeared in the second sentence of the report — was removed from the final version.

    The revisions occurred as the governor was on the brink of a huge payoff: a book deal that ended with a high offer of more than $4 million, according to people with knowledge of the book’s bidding process.

    A New York Times examination of the development of Mr. Cuomo’s lucrative book deal revealed how it overlapped with the move by his most senior aides to reshape a report about nursing home deaths in a way that insulated the governor from criticism and burnished his image...

    Emails and an early draft of Mr. Cuomo’s book obtained by The New York Times indicate that the governor was writing it as early as mid-June, relying on a cadre of trusted aides and junior staffers for everything from full-scale edits to minor clerical work, potentially running afoul of state laws prohibiting use of public resources for personal gain.

    Jesus. This dude should have resigned - or been forced to - like yesterday. He's completely shredded his credibility and legitimacy at this point.

    Wonder how well Andrew will sleep tonight:

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ny-...mo-allegations

    "The New York State Assembly has opened a tip line for those who with information relating to the impeachment investigation into Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

    The investigation was opened in light of multiple women accusing the governor of sexual harassment. But Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie has said it will be "very broad" in scope and could look into the state’s handling of nursing homes during the pandemic and the project to replace the Tappan Zee bridge. "

    https://www.democratandchronicle.com...es/4831554001/

    "A USA TODAY Network New York review of Cuomo's actions leading up to and directly following the book's October release suggest he may have violated some of those conditions and toed the line of others, which could put him at odds with state Public Officers Law.

    Public Officers Law violations can be punished by a fine of up to $10,000 and the value of any "compensation or benefit received as a result of such violation." Cuomo fetched offers of more than $4 million for his book deal, according to The New York Times.

    Among the conduct in question:

    Cuomo repeatedly conducted television interviews, Q&As and other virtual events promoting the book from the Executive Mansion, the state-owned property provided to the governor for use as his residence.
    At least three senior staff members — Melissa DeRosa, Stephanie Benton and Rich Azzopardi — were involved in the crafting or promotion of the book, though Cuomo's office says all volunteered their time.
    Cuomo mentioned his book during several official COVID-19 briefings and news conferences, including those on Aug. 19, Nov. 15, Nov. 23 and Dec. 23.
    Executive assistants were told to type or transfer notes for the book, and at least twice were directed to print drafts and deliver them to the Executive Mansion, The New York Times reported Wednesday."
