Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean, who has been trying to sound the alarm about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic for over a year, spoke out on Tuesday to react to him finally resigning in the wake of his sexual harassment scandal.
While Dean said that she is glad that Cuomo’s “abuse of power” is over, she thinks the investigations into his conduct should continue because his “corruption runs deep.”
“I didn’t think he was going to do it, Harris,” Dean told host Harris Faulkner. “You know, I sat there, and I thought he’s going to blame everybody else like he usually does, blame her, blame them, God, mother nature, The New York Post, all of the things he blames for his nursing home decision. So, I was waiting for him to do the same, and I was waiting for him to say I am going to stick it through because I believe I’m innocent. And instead, he said he was resigning. I’m in shock. I’m not going to lie.”
“Today’s a good day, but I will say this, Harris. I want justice,” she added. “I don’t want this to be the end of the chapter. I want those investigations to continue. And so I want justice for those brave women that came forward, and I want justice for those who have no voice, who are in a grave right now because of his mandate. Don’t forget the over 15,000 loved ones that deserve answers. We haven’t talked about those people.”
“You know, it has gotten caught up in the ‘Me Too’ stuff,” Dean concluded. “And I get it, it’s important, and it’s an abuse of power. That’s what this guy has been leading with for the last three terms is his abuse of power. And it is over today, but do not forget he has many investigations, some that could turn criminal. And his corruption runs deep.”
Cuomo resigned on Tuesday after an investigation conducted by the New York attorney general concluded that he’d sexually harassed a dozen women. Check out Dean’s full comments on the situation below.
