Two Democratic senators, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, have called on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign amid a number of sexual harassment allegations (but not because of his attempt to hide COVID-19 deaths from the feds). The Associated Press, though, had to find some balance to their piece on Cuomo, and thus added that Republicans have seized on the harassment scandal.

It’s real:

The escalating political crisis has spawned an impeachment inquiry in an overwhelmingly Democratic state, and threatens to cast a cloud over President Joe Biden’s early days in office. Republicans have seized on the scandal to try to distract from Biden’s success tackling the coronavirus pandemic and challenge his party’s well-established advantage with female voters.

“… to distract from Biden’s success tackling the coronavirus pandemic”? Funny how the press doesn’t give daily body counts anymore as Biden and Kamala Harris build their vaccination program “from scratch.”

Exactly.

Meanwhile, Democrat governors have seized on the pandemic to keep schools closed and the public locked down.
