Nancy Pelosi isn’t happy with this picture, and the timing is even worse.
As New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment scandal worsens, with a third woman filing a public lawsuit against the one-time Democratic favorite of the mass media, a photo of Pelosi sharing the stage with Cuomo at a 2015 event is making the rounds on social media.

What was the occasion? A dialogue on the subject of sexual harassment against young women by a group of experts.

Outside of the federal government, Andrew Cuomo is one of the most well-known figures in the world.
He’s not only in his third term as governor of one of the country’s most populous states, but he’s still so far to the left on key Democratic issues that he signed a bill in 2018 allowing nearly unrestricted late-term abortions.
Although his handling of the coronavirus pandemic has been an embarrassment by every standard — his March 2020 order forcing nursing homes to welcome COVID-19 patients is currently under FBI investigation — he has been praised by a mass media that despises Republicans, has written a book boasting about his leadership, and has even received an Emmy for his regular updates on the epidemic.
More troubling, he was the subject of a new buzzword: “Cuomosexual,” a vaguely lewd self-description for liberals like Trevor Noah of “The Daily Show” and talk show host Ellen Degeneres who are completely enamored with the Empire State’s chief executive.
Women have come forward with disturbing accounts of Cuomo’s actions — two in the workplace, one in a social setting — as a result of his popularity.
And a nearly six-year-old social media post by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is resurfacing as conservatives wonder when enough is enough when it comes to Democrats.
So when are you calling for his resignation, Madam Speaker? https://t.co/NmHqhZH1V3

So it turns out the Gov was only there to pick up some tips on sexually harassing women…

As long as it’s politically expedient, Democrats enjoy portraying themselves as champions of women and minorities.
As highly troubling allegations emerged against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in September of 2018, for example, the left’s indignation was palpable.
The fact that the allegations were based on a hazy incident that allegedly occurred 35 years ago at a location the accuser couldn’t recall, with no corroborating witnesses or proof, made no difference to the Democrats’ baying hounds or their mass media enablers bent on destroying a man they despised for political purposes.

The fact that the photo of Pelosi and Cuomo was taken at an event highlighting sexual assaults of college women adds to its allure.
The second woman to make a public allegation against Cuomo had just graduated from college when the incident she described occurred. (In reality, the woman, Charlotte Bennett, was 25 at the time she had a sexually charged conversation with Cuomo in June.) When Cuomo and Pelosi shared the stage, she would have been in college.)
Cuomo, who is 63 years old, has characterized his role in the workplace conversations as “playful.”
In a statement on the governor’s office website, he said, “I mean no offense and am just attempting to bring some levity and banter to what is a very serious business.”
