Andrew’s in the soup, that’s for sure.
Wrap your head around this: The New York Times is reporting that Gov. Cuomo took time out from coronavirus hot-dogging last June to offer tattoo-placement advice to a just-turned-25-year-old female aide of no particular expertise during a private, closed-door sit-down in the state Capitol.
Cuomo suggested “she should put the tattoo on her buttocks, so people would not see it when she wore a dress,” the paper says.
That was probably sound tattoo strategy — except that 23 years after Monica Lewinsky became a household name it’s pretty astonishing to learn that powerful elected leaders are still maneuvering women of a tender age into private offices and hitting on them.
Or, as Cuomo conceded to the Times, “mentoring” them.
And maybe more to the point, doing that and expecting to get away with it. Too bad for Cuomo that this time the young lady wasn’t having any.
Time wounds all heels. But what I really suspect is happening is that there's a new generation of wokesters wishing for power in NY state and Cuomo is in the way.
