NEW YORK STATE (WSYR-TV) — After months of allegations, Governor Andrew Cuomo has resigned – effective in two weeks.
After an investigation from the attorney general’s office determined Cuomo had sexually harassed 11 women — in and out of state government — the governor was initially defiant. He appeared to reject calls to resign, but announced Tuesday he would step down so that the government could focus on COVID-19 pandemic recovery without the distraction of a lengthy impeachment trial.
