It’s over for Andrew Cuomo. The fat lady has sung. The canary has keeled over in the coal mine. The bucket hath been kicked.
The grope-y governor did, in fact, sexually harass and abuse women and the Albany D.A. is going to be investigating the matter criminally. The details of the investigation and likely trial will haunt the Cuomo name for generations, and there’s no telling if his pundit brother will make it out of this unscathed either.

Both of New York’s US senators called for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign amid allegations of sexual harassment months ago. After Letitia James, the state’s attorney general, released the results of an investigation Tuesday, they were joined by dozens more Democrats—including President Biden.

James’ investigation concluded that Cuomo had sexually harassed 11 state employees, created a “hostile work environment.” and retaliated against at least one of his accusers. The governor denied James’ findings hours after the report was released.

One can only imagine that impeachment hearings will be commencing imminently.
