Isolated and Alone

Andrew Cuomo is increasingly Isolated and Alone. He has been spurned by the State Democratic leadership. The heads of the Assembly and Senate have called for his resignation. The congressional delegation is rebuking him. Democratic Senators Kristen Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer have called for his removal from office. Members of the Legislature overwhelming support his ouster. Through it all the Governor has retreated within. He stubbornly refuses to concede. He is so arrogant and power hungry that he can not accept the inevitable. His determination to cling to authority is harming New York. A pall hangs over state government. The impasse has compromised his ability to govern. This in the midst of a once-in-a-century health crisis and economic downturn. He simply must go. For the sake of the Empire State his impeachment must be expedited. Then the legal system will determine whether he should be prosecuted for criminal acts. Isolated and Alone, he is a pariah in his own turf.
