Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo provided the playbook for his own ousting when he served as New York’s attorney general, both through precedent established over his career and legislation he personally signed.
Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo will soon resign his post in the wake of two scandals. The primary scandal is Cuomo’s alleged sexual harassment of 11 women, which he still denies despite an independent investigation commissioned by New York Attorney General Letitia James finding that he had violated state and federal law. The second is Cuomo’s mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic in the state’s nursing homes, which has killed more than 15,000 New York nursing home residents.
