New York Attorney General Letitia James has determined that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has “sexually harassed multiple women,” a violation of state law. It’s understandable that Democrats are dismayed at this behavior from one of their own, with many high-ranking politicians calling for Cuomo to resign or be impeached. And of course right wingers are suddenly clutching their pearls in histrionic fashion because of this unacceptable behavior from a Democrat. What’s remarkable is that Republicans have absolutely no problem with sexual harassment or abuse when it’s done by a fellow Republican. The hypocrisy is off the charts.

Accused sex trafficker Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is already whining that he believes he’s being treated worse by the media than Cuomo, falsely claiming Republicans receive harsher judgment than do Democrats. Fox News (an entertainment and disinformation network) invited Kayleigh McEnany, of all people, on the air to condemn Cuomo’s behavior, all while never once asking McEnany about the numerous accusations of sexual misconduct by The Former Guy whom she represented as press secretary. The GOP is cheering the possible downfall of Cuomo while conveniently ignoring the problems in its on sphere.

It’s rich that the right suddenly thinks it gets a say when Democrats engage in wrongful conduct, all while ignoring the wrongdoing in their ranks. Cuomo’s actions are unbecoming and absolutely wrong, and Democrats are correct to call him out for it. But Republicans need to clean their own house before they can claim moral superiority. Republicans do all they can to keep the culture wars going, and this story is no exception. If the right truly cares about right and wrong, it would begin calling out the misdeeds on that side of the political aisle.
