Megyn Kelly dropped the hammer on disgraced New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and “his loser brother,” Chris accusing them of abusing the “privilege” given to them by their famous father.
“These guys never would have achieved the positions they have had it not been for their daddy and his name,” she said. “So they get to these positions, and what do they do — they abuse them.”
“Now we find out they work together to silence these women and attack these 11 accusers that came forward against Andrew Cuomo, none of whom came from any positions of power,” she said.
“She goes to work for Andrew Cuomo as an aide, the guy tries to stick his tongue down her throat and wants to play strip poker with her, says all these inappropriate comments,” Kelly said, referring to what is in the shocking 165-page report released by the state Attorney General’s Office.
“And then when she finds the courage to tweet about it, what do these two privileged brothers do?
“They conspire together to try to silence her, humiliate her, embarrass her,” she said.
“The only reason we know Chris Cuomo did any of this stuff is he got caught,” she said.
“He’s lost all credibility. He’s shown us who he is, and I think at a minimum, this guy needs to be turfed for a long time, if not let out of that post,” she said.
Kelly said this was “a career-defining and a character-defining moment for CNN.”
“This is a moment for Jeff Zucker. Does he care at all about journalistic standards? Is there 1 percent of that left in that news organization?” she said.
Cuomo still has a huge political war chest according to The New York Times:
Even after his resignation takes effect in less than two weeks, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo will still control the largest pot of campaign cash in New York politics, an $18 million war chest amassed in apparent preparation for a run at a fourth term next year.
That prospect now seems remote: Mr. Cuomo, accused of sexually harassing nearly a dozen women, announced Tuesday that he would step down as he faced the threat of impeachment and a chorus of calls for his resignation.
But his huge stock of campaign funds — the most money retained by a departing New York politician in recent memory — affords him a range of possibilities, including the chance to attempt an eventual comeback or to play a role in the state’s political life by donating to other candidates.
Mr. Cuomo is far from the first top New York elected official to abruptly leave office. What is remarkable, and has drawn attention in Albany political circles, is the magnitude of money still at his disposal.
It is more than 10 times as much as Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, who is poised to take his place, has in her campaign account.
When Eliot Spitzer resigned as governor in 2008 in a prostitution scandal, he had most recently reported $2.9 million in the bank.
Eric Schneiderman, the former attorney general, had about $8.5 million in his campaign account when he stepped down in 2018 after several women accused him of assaulting them.
After each official left office, their campaigns reached out to donors and offered to refund contributions.
The Schneiderman campaign did so in emails to major donors who contributed large sums in the months before his resignation, according to a person who worked on the effort, and eventually gave back nearly $1.7 million.
