New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Resigns Amid Sexual Misconduct Scandal

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has resigned after being asked to by President Joe Biden and other high-ranking officials earlier this month for his sexual misdemeanors.

Last August 3, the New York Attorney General’s office found Cuomo’s “sexual harassment” of multiple women violated federal and state law.

“The best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to governing. It’s not about me, it’s about we,” said Cuomo.`

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, another Democrat, will serve the rest of Cuomo’s remaining term and will be New York’s first female governor.

Before his resignation, Cuomo already faced impeachment in the State Assembly, where a majority was already calling for his resignation.

Despite his resignation speech, Cuomo never directly addressed or admitted his sexual misdemeanors against over more than a dozen women and just said I want them to know from the bottom of my heart that I never did and I never would intentionally disrespect a woman, treat any woman differently than I would want them treated and that is the God’s honest truth.”
