纽约州政府. CUOMO RESIGNS AMID SEXUAL HARASSMENT SCANDAL

Cuomo announced his resignation as he continued to be besieged by political pressure amid the fallout from state Attorney General Letitia James’ damning report on sexual harassment claims against the governor. The 165-page report, 其中包括采访 179 人, 发现科莫骚扰现任和前任工作人员 2013 至 2020.

Allegations of misconduct first emerged in late February when former aide Lindsey Boylan accused Cuomo of sexual harassment. 自那时候起, the allegations against him mounted up and triggered the investigation.

The women accused Cuomo of making inappropriate sexual comments and engaging in unwanted touching, the most egregious being from an anonymous executive assistant who claims that he invited her to his residence and groped her breast under her blouse.

Cuomo denied the allegations and had resisted calls to resign, both when the allegations emerged earlier in the year and since the publication of the report. But with overwhelming pressure from fellow Democrats, including de Blasio, and an impeachment probe brewing, Cuomo said at a press conference Tuesday he would step down.

“纽约强硬意味着纽约爱, 我爱纽约,我爱你,” 库莫说. “我永远不想以任何方式无益, 我认为鉴于这种情况, 我现在能提供帮助的最好方法是,如果我让位,让政府重新执政, 因此, 这就是我要做的。”

He also apologized for his conduct while claiming he had nevercrossed 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,” 他加了. “There are generational and cultural shifts that I just didn’t fully appreciate. And I should have, no excuses.

Cuomo said he will step down in 14 days and be replaced by Lt. 政府. 凯西·霍赫尔.

De Blasio and Cuomo had clashed on a number of issues in recent years, on everything from 警务 to restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. De Blasio had first called for Cuomo to resign in March and had expressed his support then for an impeachment proceeding if he refused to step aside.
