I am never sure why some men, who find themselves the center of attention for being too stupid for words, took actions that clearly were ill-advised.
Do men who force themselves on women not know there are call-girls who (I am told) will do whatever is asked? That there are outlets for almost everything conceivable on the internet? That being a top elected official means having a wide selection of willing women who will enjoy such company?
So what makes men so stupid to force themselves on a woman who wants nothing to do with such advances?
Or to be precisely pointed here what made former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo feel he could forcibly touch a woman? The news today is just the latest chapter in a sordid book.
A criminal complaint against Cuomo has now been filed by Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple. Cuomo was summoned to appear in court next month on a misdemeanor charge.
The alleged crime took place at the governor’s mansion on December 7, 2020 when Cuomo “intentionally and for no legitimate purpose” forcibly placed his hand under the blouse of an unnamed victim and onto an intimate body part.
You can not make this up.
But if we are going to talk about men with power who then abuse women and commit criminal acts let us not forget Donald Trump.
He was accused of many sexual crimes including rape. Add in the financial crimes, and the insurrection against our country, and all of a sudden there is a need for a bevy of lawyers to handle the charges.
Cuomo is in need of some legal pushback and then some intense therapy.
But Trump deserves a very tight jail cell.
No man gets a pass for acting like a cad, or worse for treating a woman like a mere sex object.
And so it goes.
