Facing massive political pressure for his sexual improprieties, sexual harassment allegations, abuses of power and generally creepy conduct in office; in other words – he’s a Democrat; today New York Governor Andrew announced his resignation.
NEW YORK (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced his resignation Tuesday over a barrage of sexual harassment allegations in a fall from grace a year after he was widely hailed nationally for his detailed daily briefings and leadership during some of the darkest days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a televised address, the 63-year-old Democrat emphatically denied intentionally showing any disrespect toward women but said that fighting back against what he called the “politically motivated” attack on him would subject the state to months of turmoil, and “I cannot be the cause of that.” “The best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to governing,” Cuomo said.
The creepy idol for the leftist political media continued to proclaim his innocence and called the charges of his sexual misconduct “a distraction” keeping him from the duties of his office. However, a previous state investigation showed Cuomo consistently forced kisses upon his female staff; groped their breasts and buttocks and repeatedly touched them inappropriately.
When complaints were made against him, the governors office retaliated and the investigators said Cuomo created a work environment “rife with fear and intimidation.”
Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, a 62-year-old fellow Democrat and ideological traveler with support from the progressive NY tribe of socialists, will become the state’s 57th governor and the first woman to hold the job.
