Remember the “creepy handsy kissy Joe” problem, which began to be a thing about two years ago? The recent accusations of overly intimate flirtation and touching on the part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo sound vaguely similar, perhaps with a the dial turned up a bit. Or not. What do I know?
The descriptions and complaints make Cuomo sound (emphasis on the “s” word) like many male politicians of a certain age, like alpha lions who like to subtly (or not so subtly) sniff, sample and paw their way through a room.
I’m wondering if Cuomo drinks. If so that could be a factor. Guys who’ve had a couple tend to be less restrained, more impulsive.
Either way it appears as if Cuomo is about to be Al Franken-ed. With every new accuser the pressure intensifies all the more. We know how this goes.

Now, of course CNN has to cover it. They have covered it extensively and they will continue to do so.” pic.twitter.com/G49mZYTG4D
