Last night we learned that CNN host Chris Cuomo has been fired indefinitely for using his media ties to silence abused women and help his brother during recent sexual harassment allegations.
The former governor of New York resigned and after CNN was called out Chris was also left jobless.
Today we learn that Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s former top Aide Lis Smith also helped Andrew Cuomo navigate and deny his sexual harassment charges.
Buttigieg has not commented on the issue yet and remains suspiciously silent.
But this woman is truly deplorable.
Here’s Fox News with the full scoop:
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has remained silent as the details of a former top aide’s assistance to disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo have come to light.
Democratic strategist Lis Smith appears in a series of text messages made public this week by New York Attorney General Letitia James, who conducted an investigation into Cuomo and his staff.
Smith is documented referring to Christine Blasey Ford as “looney tunes” and speaking dismissively about the #MeToo movement earlier this year.
“Christine Blasey Ford was looney tunes and the height of [#MeToo] overreach so this checks out,” Smith texted members of then-Gov. Cuomo’s staff, referring to one of the women who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during the 2018 confirmation process of sexually assaulting her when the two were in high school.
Smith served as Cuomo’s spokesperson during his 2014 reelection bid. She also served as Buttigieg’s senior communications director during the mayor’s 2020 presidential campaign, where she was often credited as a driving force behind his rise.
Buttigieg, who has publicly referred to Ford as a “profile in courage,” has remained silent on his former aide’s comments and the fact that she played an instrumental role in providing advice to Cuomo and his team.
So this is how the left operates.
They say one thing on TV and something else in private… take notes Dr. Fauci.
So Lis Smith who was the senior communications director for Buttigieg during his 2020 run for office, has in the past called Christine Blasey Ford quote “looney tunes” someone who Buttigieg referred to as courageous.
Why can’t democrats seem to get their stories straight?
The difference here is that Judge Kavanaugh was actually innocent and was never proven guilty while the same is not true for former governor Cuomo.
So what has Lis Smith been saying this time around?
Here’s the rest of the story below:
In the transcript of Smith’s testimony for James’ investigation into Cuomo, she was asked whether she was “involved” in any other discussions besides the Cuomo team’s response to Lindsey Boylan’s sexual harassment allegations, prompting Smith to say, “Yes. I was involved with the response to the subsequent allegations that came out.”
“It was primarily offering strategic advice on how the Governor’s Office and the Governor himself should respond,” Smith added.
“Also would like to help w the sex [sic] harassment stuff- the maher people offered to do a call w me today but I need something from your team,” Smith wrote to top Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa, according to the transcripts. “At some point you guys need to give people a reason to help you and some ammo.”
Smith is documented scolding Cuomo staff for not using their “f—ing assistant” amid a new accusation of sexual misconduct on the part of the governor.
Fox News Digital reached out to Buttigieg through the Department of Transportation’s Public Affairs Office, but did not receive a response by press time.
I don’t get it.
Is everything fabricated in Washington?
Honestly, democrats have no morals, backbone, or sense of pride.
They will say and do anything that gets them power and subsequently money.
Here’s how Twitter is responding to the news:
While former presidential candidate and current Sec. of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was publicly supportive of Christine Blasey Ford, his campaign advisor Lis Smith was calling her "looney tunes and the height of Me Too overreach" in a text exchange with Cuomo admin officials. https://t.co/yEBqB1hUfR pic.twitter.com/FkP83MWTAp

Lis Smith is, as always, terrible. That Pete kept her around says something… https://t.co/14QTotqzpW

I am enjoying the well deserved dragging of Lis Smith but I also know morally bankrupt Democrats will continue to hire her and she will suffer no real consequences so

I wonder if a single democrat will ever face any real consequences for their actions, emails, and scams!
And these people are still in office?
Seriously, this is disgusting and Buttigieg should actually grow a pair and face the American people.
Here’s how you start secretary Buttigieg; “we fabricated an election, my former top aide is barely a democrat, oh and she tried helping a sex abuser”.
