New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has resigned amid his sex scandal

It has been a week since New York Attorney General Letitia James issued her 165-page report concluding that the state’s governor had sexually harassed 11 women. Yesterday, Andrew Cuomo finally agreed to step down, after months of refusing to do so. The allegations about his behavior first surfaced five months ago.

Just moments before his official announcement, his lawyer issued a statement, maintaining his innocence. 

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

The move means that the Empire State gets its first woman governor. 

Next in line is Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, who said: “I agree with Governor Cuomo’s decision to step down. It is the right thing to do and in the best interest of New Yorkers.”
