Vice President Kamala Harris has been disturbingly absent amidst a growing scandal around New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).
Harris has been completely missing in action as much of the country calls for Cuomo to resign after a host of accusers have come forward and accused him of inappropriate sexual behavior. It is hard to imagine Harris, as the nation’s first female vice president, would be so silent if a Republican governor was in Cuomo’s situation.
So the question stands, where is Harris and why has she not weighed in on this issue?
“Where is the vice president?”
Harris’s absence hasn’t gone completely unnoticed by all. Fox News host Dana Perino asked about Harris during a Monday episode of The Five.
“You keep hearing people say, ‘If one more woman comes out, he will have to resign.’ Now there’s multiple and it’s still not happening,” Perino said. “I did ask this, Jesse. Where is the vice president on this?”
Cuomo is now facing allegations from six different accusers saying that he sexually harassed them and acted inappropriately. The left has been dragging their feet in calling for Cuomo to resign — in stark contrast to their treatment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
When Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault during Senate confirmation hearings, Harris made her presence known as she viciously went after the judge.
Harris was so zealous in going after the Supreme Court nominee that it prompted former President Donald Trump to say, “She was extraordinarily nasty to Kavanaugh, Judge Kavanaugh, now Justice Kavanaugh. She was nasty to a level that was just a horrible thing the way she was, the way she treated now-Justice Kavanaugh. And I won’t forget that soon.”
The fact that Harris isn’t bringing that same energy to a Democrat who stands accused of sexual harassment by six different women speaks volumes of her integrity.
While many Democrats have called for an investigation into Cuomo, there is a feeling that the party as a whole is uneasy about the situation.
Cuomo was a rising star in the Democratic Party and now he has forced the party into damage control.
The governor himself was perfectly fine with slandering Kavanaugh when Ford’s accusations broke into the news. Now Cuomo is calling for evidence and due process, something he would have denied to Kavanaugh.
