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. 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.
