It's a civil was between the progressive wing of the party and the standard holders. Look at how people have taken sides: people like AOC are calling for Cuomo's ouster while Pelosi and Biden are pushing back on it.

I can think of one pop culture relevance that’s actually relevant. Does anyone remember from Star Wars old portrayals of Sith Society such as in the Old Republic franchise? In there it’s shown to be an utterly ruthless, socially Darwinian environment where there is no such thing as peace and life is defined by a constant struggle for power and position within the with hierarchy, by any devious means possible.
I imagine being in the Democratic Party or any socialist bureaucracy is kind of like that. Even once you take over you never get to enjoy it because you are constantly living in a paranoid state of having to watch for and thwart potential rivals for your position.
It’s a fairly common trope in some ways, but I picked the one I know best and that I suspect most people know best.
That’s also more or less how people who lived under Stalinism say it was actually like. Endless political competition as you try to rise to the next post in the party without being sent to the Gulag.
This is exactly why he is still standing. I am not a Cuomo fan, but I admire his handling of these ridiculous allegations. I wonder whether other men will note that this is the only way to handle things when the mob comes for you.So Cuomo is still around and they basically left him alone? Is it because he refused to apologize and beg for mercy?
Cuomo himself is a jew.My suspicion is the real reasons are as follows:
1. Cuomo is a threat to Kamala’s (and her Jewish husband’s) plans for power. If it came to a DNC nomination, Cuomo is a good candidate.
2. Andrew has mafia connections, and the Italians and Jews have not always gotten along.
3. He messed up with nursing homes, and there has to be a sacrificial lamb.
