New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) was accused of sexual harassment by a former aide this week.
Cuomo Accused Of Sexual Harassment
On Thursday’s episode of “The View,” Joy Behar responded to this by saying that if Cuomo is to be investigated, former President Donald Trump, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) should be as well.
Lindsey Boylan, the former deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to Cuomo, penned a Medium post on Wednesday in which she accused Cuomo of making unwanted advances against her, and even attempting to kiss her on the mouth.
She alleged that his behavior was “normalized” by his top female staffers, and that he once invited her to play “strip poker” back in 2017.
Behar Fires Back
“I think they’re pretty bad. His office has denied the allegations, but they’re pretty specific, as Sara pointed out,” Behar said, referring to her cohost Sara Haines. “They have been corroborated by at least one other aide, so it definitely merits investigation. I’m sure the Democrats will be quick to remove him if it all comes out in the wash because that’s what the Democrats do. Case in point, Al Franken. Bye-bye.”
“So I would like to also add that these allegations should be taken seriously and thoroughly investigated just like the following; Jim Jordan, for covering up and failing to report sexual abuse of minors by former members of the Ohio State University wrestling team, Brett Kavanaugh, the FBI did a hurried three-day investigation into credible claims from multiple women,” she added.
“Remember that? It was, like, ‘Oh, we’re done. We’re done,'” she continued. “And of course, Donald Trump himself, who is accused of upwards of 25 women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. If you are going to investigate Cuomo, you better investigate these other people. That’s all I’m saying.”

“He is a pervert who has harassed women,” said McCain. “He should resign immediately.”
