Finally - A Real Investigation

A 168-page report that is the result of interviews –179 of them. A report that is the result of a real investigation. That is what is New York Attorney General Letitia James released earlier this week. This report, the product of months of work, concluded that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has sexual harassed 11 women. The report also stated that his office was a toxic workplace and that there was retaliation against at least one public accuser.

It is refreshing that the reports of sexual harassment by Cuomo were investigated. And they were investigated after Cuomo referred them to General James last spring when a raft of allegations made news. James took the referral seriously and conducted a real investigation. What a juxtaposition to the failure to investigate the sexual harassment and/or sexual abuse claims levied against Larry Nassar and Brett Kavanaugh as reported earlier this week.

Further, it is likely obvious to nearly all but Andrew Cuomo that he must resign. And if he doesn’t, he will be removed from office. He asked for this investigation and must live with the outcome. Cuomo’s digging in and excuses are not going to hold. He said in March—wait for the report. Well, the report is here—the result of a real investigation—and its conclusions are clear.

It great to know the legal action and human rights on such harassments at workplaces.

It is about time that powerful men face the consequences of their primal instincts and their view of women as sexual objects! Now, this should not stop here. Other powerful men in law and politics should face similar consequences, including the former president of the USA. While Harvey Weinstein, and Kellen Winslow have faced consequences, there are still too many women whom having been assaulted by powerful men, never see justice done. Yes, it is about time that all these men are treated as men, and not gods, under the law.
