Scandal-ridden New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced earlier this week that he is resigning amid the NUMEROUS sexual harassment allegations against him. However, he did not resign immediately, but rather gave a "two week notice" of his departure.
Representative Lee Zeldin appeared on Newsmax on Wednesday and questioned Cuomo's motives, bringing up the possibility of him destroying evidence,
"I can't even begin to come up with excuses for good reason," Zeldin said. "The best thing would be for him to have just announced yesterday that he is going to leave yesterday, but he's being stubborn, saying he's going to stay for another two weeks, and I can't sit here right now and make excuses for it and explain it away.
"We also have to make sure that they don't spend the next two weeks getting rid of evidence, because there's a lot of investigations and interests — for example, getting more information with regard to the nursing home cover-up," he continued. "I hope those documents aren't ending up in a shredder while we're here having this conversation."
Zeldin also noted that Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul is likely "complicit" in the corruption.
"Throughout the deadly nursing home order and cover-up, where was she speaking out?" Zeldin pondered. "We knew publicly. This was a debate that was going on within the media, New York, and the American public. There's no way that she can act like she has no idea of any of this. We all knew about it. We're all here talking about it..."
He continued, "Is she complicit, and to what extent, or is she just completely out to lunch during her time as his lieutenant? Pick one. But don't try to play this third card, because it doesn't exist. The rest of us have too many facts to say that she is not part of the Cuomo-Hochul administration."
"I think what will likely happen is Kathy Hochul will continue to try to stake out herself, her reputation, her positions as an ideological progressive thinking about the June '22 primary, and all of the people who are going to be stacking up to her left flank," Zeldin predicted.
"You ask me what kind of a person you're looking for the lieutenant governor, I want to know about their qualifications to be governor; I want to know about their experience, their work ethic, the chemistry that exists, to make sure that they are able to lead," he said. "And you know, unfortunately with Democrats, they want to know biographical information about your race, your religion, your ethnicity."
The representative added, "They'll ask all these other questions before they're going to be asking about, 'OK, what's your experience? What's your ability to be the governor?' It's about electability inside of that Democratic primary base."

Sen. Cruz: 'Pelosi is Drunk on Power' - Probably Vodka Too
On Thursday, Senator Ted Cruz slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the Senate floor, declaring that she is drunk on power with her new mask mandates. Power isn't the only thing she is drunk on...I'd say there is some vodka in the mix too.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts, absolutely. Great men are almost exclusively bad men, even where they exercise influence and not authority,” Cruz said, pulling from a series of letters to Bishop Craig from Lord Acton. He added that “those words were true in 1887, and they’re true today.”
