The governor of New York Andrew Cuomo has resigned amidst the ongoing harassment scandal claiming that he sexually harassed several women. His decision to step down comes as he’s faced mounting pressure to resign from Democrats in New York and nationally, including from President Joe Biden.

Andrew Cuomo Resigns Amidst Harassment ScandalAnd I think that given the circumstances the best way I can help now is if I step aside and let the government get back to the government, and therefore that is what I’ll do because I work for you, and doing the right thing, is doing the right thing for you,” Cuomo said.

“It is a matter of life and death. Government operations and wasting energy on distraction is the last thing government should be,” Cuomo said. “I cannot be the cause. New York tough means New York love. And I love New York and I love you. Everything I have ever done has been motivated by that love and I would never want to be unhelpful in any way.”

Speaking to his three daughters, Andrew Cuomo said, “I want them to know from the bottom of my heart that I never did and I never would intentionally disrespect a woman, treat any woman differently than I would want them treated and that is God’s honest truth.” “Your dad made mistakes. And he apologized, and he learned from it and that’s what life is all about.”
