New York Governor Andrew Cuomo refuses to resign. But the pressure on him only grows on the two fronts he has open.

New information indicates that the concealment of deaths by covid in New York nursing homes consisted of a draft mission, since his assistants manipulated a report to reduce the number of deceased and leave Cuomo well.

“He is really a strategist. Abusers look for vulnerability, prior trauma “

In turn, the sexual harassment scandal had another chapter. Charlotte Bennett, 25, a former employee of her office and one of the complainants, gave an interview to CBS. “He is a manual abuser,” he said.

“He is really a strategist. Abusers look for vulnerability, prior trauma, the idea that maybe you will be better able to accept this behavior because you have suffered sexual violence, ”said Bennett, who had already been a victim of this type of violence. “I think he was trying to sleep with me and I felt very uncomfortable and that I should leave that place as soon as possible,” he said.

The other two accusers – Lindsey Boyland, another former employee, and Anna Ruch – have also not accepted her excuse.

“He asked me if I had trouble enjoying being with someone because of my trauma, he asked me if I was sensitive to intimacy,” she added. He also rejected the governor’s apology, because he considered that “it was not an apology.” Cuomo claimed that he now knows it caused pain, but that it was not his intention. He attributed it to a style of approach that he inherited from his father and that he has understood is not acceptable today. He also reiterated that “I never touched anyone inappropriately.”

The other two accusers – Lindsey Boyland, another former employee, and Anna Ruch – have also not accepted her excuse.

Bennett’s appearance occurred Thursday night. Shortly after, The Wall Street Journal Y The New York Times They revealed that the main aides of the governor, including his right hand, Melissa DeRosa, manipulated a report that recognized the death of almost 10,000 residents in nursing homes.

They performed before it became public. So that figure was lowered to 6,432, after erasing those who died in hospitals once they had been transferred from residences due to its severity. This came when Cuomo had begun writing a manual on his successes in managing the pandemic, once he became a national benchmark.

The number now stands at 15,000 dead, after state attorney general Letitia James uncovered the hoax.
