Final Sexual Harassment Case Against Former NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo Dropped

(NewsGlobal.com)- Last week, the last of the five criminal cases brought against former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was dropped, and now, the disgraced Cuomo is declaring himself “exonerated.”

On January 31, Oswego County District Attorney Gregory Oakes announced that after reviewing the evidence and “applicable law,” the DA’s office determined there wasn’t “a sufficient legal basis to bring criminal charges” against the disgraced former governor based on the allegations made by accuser Virginia Limmiatis.

Virginia Limmiatis, an employee with National Grid in Syracuse, accused Cuomo of touching her chest during a conversation while both were attending a May 2017 event in Oswego County.

According to the August 3, 2021 report released by New York State Attorney General Letitia James, Limmiatis said she came forward after hearing the governor’s March 2021 remarks in which he denied ever inappropriately touching anyone.

However, DA Oakes was clear that the decision not to prosecute doesn’t cast doubt on Limmiatis’ “character or credibility.” Instead, the decision was based on “whether the People can establish a legally sufficient case under controlling precedent.”

In a subsequent interview with the New York Post, Oakes said he believes Limmiatis’ account and his decision not to prosecute the case shouldn’t in any way be considered an exoneration of Andrew Cuomo.

But Andrew Cuomo doesn’t see it that way.

In an interview last week, the former governor expressed regret for his decision to resign from office over the sexual harassment allegations and defiantly declared himself “vindicated” in the court of public opinion.

According to Bloomberg News, Cuomo also claimed he was “exonerated” by five district attorneys.

But he wasn’t “exonerated.” Four of the five DAs who declined to prosecute said they found Cuomo’s accusers “credible.”

Cuomo said an honest summary from “people on the street” make it clear that he has been “vindicated.”

According to people close to the disgraced Grandma Killer, he has been expressing a desire to return to public life but hasn’t said whether or not he would run for office again.

Meanwhile, like former President Trump, Cuomo is fixated on Attorney General Letitia James whom he blames for his misfortunes.
