“Oh what a tangled web we weave when at first we start to deceive”
I’ve been thinking of that quote by Sir Walter Scott from his poem “Marmion” quite a bit lately and how it fits so perfectly with Andrew Cuomo, our governor here in New York State and those that surround him.
It’s all about the effects of how one lie leads to more lies until we become trapped in a web of dishonesty.
And when it comes to our New York lawmakers, many seem to be just as awful as the guy in charge.
I learned this on Wednesday about New York State Assemblywoman Diana Richardson. She appeared at an anti-crime press conference in Brooklyn with Gov. Cuomo. Richardson was by his side despite having been one of the many who called for Cuomo’s resignation this year because of sexual harassment allegations a few months back.
The assemblywoman said back in March in a joint statement issued with State Senator Zellnor Myrie that: “the governor was no longer entitled to remain in office because he’d irreparably damaged his trustworthiness and ability to lead.”
