OA517: Cuomo Resigns; Dominion Lawsuit Survives Motion to Dismiss – AKA Consequences for Baddies!

It’s a consequences episode, our favorite genre! Our first bit of great news is that Cuomo resigned. Andrew has a few follow up thoughts on that and our episode on Cuomo, as well as some introductory information on who will be New York’s first ever female Governor, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul! Then we get to the great news of the Dominion Lawsuit surviving a motion to dismiss. If you’ve listened to the show for a while, you might have noticed that defamation suits tend to have a tough time surviving motions to dismiss. That’s because our 1st Amendment is very broad. But the Big Liars went so beyond the pale, they’re finding out even the 1st Amendment has limits. Yay!
