Now the pressure is too much – and Cuomo draws the effects.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, 63, who was considered a possible presidential candidate, resigned Tuesday over allegations of sexual harassment.
The 63-year-old drew the consequences of the allegations made by several women on Tuesday. Politicians from both parties, including US President Joe Biden, have previously called for his resignation.
Cuomo was the most popular politician last year: he was celebrated across the country for his detailed daily presentations and his leadership during the dark days of the Govt-19 epidemic.
Cuomo was indicted by an official inquiry last week, but has denied the allegations to date. However, he announced his resignation from the video.
“I love New York and I don’t want to be helpless in any way,” he said. “The best way I can help now is to step aside and let the government go back to power.”
The Democrat politician has been in office since 2011. He was re-elected just two years ago. The governor’s decision precedes the indictment.
The evidence is enormous
Charges against him: difficult. He is said to have sexually harassed women. The offensive comments were the order of the day. Anyone who is stabbed will be “punished”.
As the governor opened the door he ran his hand from a woman’s navel to her waist. Another woman’s hand went under her as she smiled at a group photo. Then he went under her blouse.
These details were captured in an explosive report by New York Attorney General Ledidia James.
During the trial, 179 witnesses were interviewed and 74,000 witnesses were evaluated. The verdict of the 85-page report is clear: eleven women accused of sexually abusing Cuomo are “trustworthy” and the burden of evidence is “enormous”. There are criminal investigations in three districts.
