Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
Former CNN host Chris Cuomo reportedly tried to apply to become a volunteer firefighter with the East Hampton Fire Department but was ultimately forced to withdraw his application due to concerns he would be able to put in the time required for the position.
The Daily Wire reports:
“It’s a very time-consuming thing. There are monthly meetings and drills and you have to meet a percentage of your calls,” EHFD Chief Duane Forrester said. “That’s why we don’t have many celebrities.”
Debra S. Katz, a Left-wing attorney, said in a statement in December that she was representing a client who claimed that Chris Cuomo engaged in “serious sexual misconduct” against her at another network.
Katz said she notified CNN of the allegations and that the allegations are ultimately what led to Chris Cuomo being fired from CNN. Katz said in a statement that Cuomo demonstrated hypocrisy when he claimed he cared “very deeply” about the issue of sexual harassment only to be revealed in an investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James to have aided his brother’s efforts to smear his accusers.
“Hearing the hypocrisy of Chris Cuomo’s on-air words and disgusted by his efforts to try to discredit these women, my client retained counsel to report his serious sexual misconduct against her to CNN,” Katz said.
Katz said CNN decided to fire Cuomo days after learning of the allegations.
Cuomo is now suing CNN for $125 million, demanding $15 million in lost salary and $110 million in further damages, after he was fired following an investigation into him helping his brother navigate a political scandal.
