(ConservativeInsider.org) – When stories began to surface about former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) and his unwelcome relationships with women, many Americans knew his time in office was quickly coming to an end. However, the disgraced former leader has been able to sidestep quite a few of the charges brought against him in recent months.
On Monday, January 3, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office announced it will not file criminal charges against Cuomo for his mishandling of nursing home deaths in New York during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The same day, prosecutors told Brittany Commisso, a former staffer of his, that the district attorney is dropping the charges surrounding Cuomo’s alleged assault of her as well.

While some sources say filing issues prevented Commisso’s case from moving forward, her attorney emphasized his client “had no control over the filing or prosecution of criminal charges,” even though she wished the case could move forward. On the other side, Albany District Attorney David Soares emphasized that his office would not be able to meet the burden of proof at trial, despite Commisso’s claim being “cooperative and credible.”
As Americans watch these allegations against Cuomo fall by the wayside, many wonder if politics are playing a part in these new developments. Hopefully, those who seek justice and closure for pain caused by Cuomo are able to find it despite these setbacks.
Do you think the charges should be refiled against Cuomo, if it was a filing error?
