Andrew Cuomo Resigns

Lawmakers in Albany, and D.C. have been calling for Cuomo's exit amid investigations into inappropriate sexual behavior. 

Today, Cuomo Resigned.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo resigned Tuesday in the wake of a report that found he violated state and federal sexual-harassment laws, capping months of speculation

The report, issued in early August by New York Attorney General Letitia James, said Mr. Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women, created a hostile work environment and retaliated against at least one former employee.

In a press conference Tuesday, Mr. Cuomo said the attorney general’s report and an impeachment probe had become a distraction.

Mr. Cuomo apologized to women who accused him of sexual harassment Tuesday, during his first public comments since an investigation found he sexually harassed at least 11 women.

Crossing the Line

In my mind, I’ve never crossed the line with anyone. But I didn’t realize the extent to which the line has been redrawn,” said Cuomo.

What a hoot.

Attorney General Report on Sexual Harassment

Attorney General Letitia James filed this Report of Investigation Into Allegations of Sexual Harassment by Governor Cuomo (emphasis mine). The report is 168 pages long.

Executive Summary

We, the investigators appointed to conduct an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, conclude that the Governor engaged in conduct constituting sexual harassment under federal and New York State law. Specifically, we find that the Governor sexually harassed a number of current and former New York State employees by, among other things, engaging in unwelcome and nonconsensual touching, as well as making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women.

Conclusion 

Upon completion of our independent investigation into allegations of sexual harassment brought against Governor Andrew Cuomo and the surrounding circumstances, we have reached the conclusion that the Governor sexually harassed a number of State employees through unwelcome and unwanted touching, as well as by making numerous offensive and sexually suggestive comments. We find that such conduct was part of a pattern of behavior that extended to his interactions with others outside of State government. We also find the Executive Chamber’s response to allegations of sexual harassment violated its internal policies and that the Executive Chamber’s response to one complainant’s allegations constituted unlawful retaliation. In addition, we conclude that the culture of fear and intimidation, the normalization of inappropriate comments and interactions, and the poor enforcement of the policies and safeguards, contributed to the sexual harassment, retaliation, and an overall hostile work environment in the Executive Chamber. 

Nope, No Lines Crossed There, In Cuomo's Mind

On August 3, I asked How Long Before NY Governor Andrew Cuomo Resigns or Is Impeached on Sex Charges?

On August 17, 2020, Cuomo gave a key speech at the Democratic National Convention. Supposedly, he was a rising star in the party.

Now key members of his own party have turned on Cuomo like rabid dogs chasing a rabbit. 

One way or another Cuomo will be gone. He will resign in disgrace or be impeached and removed. 

I suspect a Richard Nixon play. Look for Cuomo to resign.

Today Cuomo resigned but not because of a "distraction" he cited. Rather Cuomo resigned because it was clear he would be impeached and removed from office if he didn't.

But politicians never cross lines, at least in their own twisted, if not outright perverted minds.
