When allegations were first levied against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, virtually the entire Democrat Party chose to ignore them, which would include Joe Biden.
A handful of Democrats came out to demand his resignation from the outset due to the nature of the allegations, but they were definitely the exception.
Biden actually went to the extreme the other way, holding Cuomo up as an example of great leadership, and now it is all coming back to haunt him.
When Biden was doing the late-night circuit during the election cycle, he called Cuomo “one hell of a leader” as well as being the “gold standard” in how he handled the pandemic.

In August 2020, Biden tweeted, “Andrew Cuomo, thank you for your leadership and the example you’ve set for all Americans during this pandemic.”
As time passed and both the sexual harassment allegations and nursing home scandal came to light, Biden was given the opportunity to walk back his comments, but he declined, sticking by Cuomo.
After Biden moved into the White House, Cuomo came over for a visit, but neither issue was publicly addressed, with Biden choosing to yuck it up with Cuomo instead.
Rep. Tenney (R-N.Y.) had one of the best tweets on this…
According to Joe Biden, Andrew Cuomo is the gold standard of governors, Hunter Biden is the smartest person he knows & Kamala Harris is doing a great job with our Southern Border.
Am I the only one starting to think our President isn’t a great judge of character?

No matter what Biden does now, he will find himself attached to Cuomo at the hip, which is why he would prefer him to step down as soon as possible.
The longer Cuomo stays in office, the more articles like this and tweets seen above will be used against Biden.
