Does Governor Cuomo deserve due process? I know it has been denied to anyone to comes on the radar of our Progressive* overlords, but we still have a Constitution and believe in the rule of law, right? The left has ignored the restraints of law in their crusade to destroy America. Should we join in?
Maybe he doesn’t. The State Senate and Assembly leadership, Democrats no less, have called on the Governor to step down based on the reports we are getting about his alleged sexual harassment of female employees. That is the Democrat way: Listen to the rumors, stick your wet finger in the air, and demand that someone act like they are guilty.
Maybe he does. It seems the Republicans in New York have found a spine and started impeachment proceedings. The key here is that impeachment is supposed to be for legal violations and is calling for the due process involved in the allegations. What is really encouraging is that the Republicans in New York seem to have found a spine. Maybe they have been hanging around with Trump. Or maybe they just listened to the rumors, stuck their wet finger in the air and decided they could come out and play.
Personally I would like the Democrats to set the example. File charges. Take testimony. Have a trial. Grant the protections of the Constitution. Give Cuomo due process. Let it be a trial by jury instead of a trial by accusation. Then let the chips fall where they may.
Maybe the Republican leadership will see it and realize that they can do more than whisper in corners.
