Roommates, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has reportedly decided to accept mounting calls to resign. These calls, from the likes of President Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and New York senators, came following the findings of his sexual assault investigation. According to CNN, the governor has announced he is “stepping aside” from his role.
During a press conference on Tuesday morning, Andrew called his impeachment investigation “politically motivated.” However, he is reportedly stepping down regardless because he would “never want to be unhelpful in any way.”
“I’m a New Yorker, born and bred,” Andrew said during the conference. “I’m a fighter and my instinct is to fight through this controversy because I truly believe it is politically motivated, I believe it is unfair and it is untruthful and I believe it demonizes behavior that is unsustainable for society.”
As previously reported, New York Attorney General Letitia James shared that an investigation concluded that “the governor sexually harassed multiple women, and violated state and federal laws.”
According to CNN, New York Lieutenant Gov. Kathy Hochul will be stepping up to replace Andrew. This move will make the Buffalo native New York’s first female governor.
