Damning report on governor’s conduct shines light on shifting party power structure, rise of new priorities and difficulty in steering clear of internal warfare.
Aug. 3, 2021 5:20 pm ETA damning report on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s conduct in office explores deeply important questions involving the problems of sexual harassment and toxic workplace environments.But on a more purely political level, the report also shines a light on some broader changes within the Democratic Party: a shifting party power structure, the rise of new priorities and the difficulty in steering clear of internal warfare even when in power—maybe especially when in power.
