Andrew Cuomo's 'hero' rise and fall is a lot like Rudy Giuliani's

. Rudy Giuliani/Andrew Cuomo Tom Williams/CQ-Roll Call, Inc via Getty Images/REUTERS/Brendan McDermid Andrew Cuomo, like Rudy Giuliani after 9/11, was a nationally-acclaimed "hero." But after a series of revelations and disastrous pressers, the bloom is off Cuomo's rose.  Both men sullied their reputations simply by being themselves — arrogant, bullying, and unaccountable.

$40-Million Collection-Care Goal: Brooklyn Museum’s 1st Round of Art Sales Under AAMD’s Relaxed Rules

The American Alliance of Museums’ Code of Ethics for collections, which states that sale proceeds can be used only for “acquisition or direct care of collections” [emphasis added].

Brooklyn Museum To Sell 12 Works To Pay For Maintaining The Rest Of Its Art

“It is the kind of sale that once would have engendered criticism, perhaps even sanctions: The Brooklyn Museum is putting 12 works up for auction at Christie’s next month — including paintings by Cranach, Courbet and Corot — to raise funds for the care of its collection. But it is now completely within the parameters of loosened regulations, which are themselves a measure of just how financially damaging the coronavirus pandemic has been for cultural institutions.” – The New York Times
