There are very few avenues of redemption available to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo at the moment, as the Empire state lawmaker continues to grapple with the fallout from an enormous sexual abuse and harassment scandal that paints him as a creep incarnate.
At least eleven women have come forward to accuse Cuomo of varying degrees of highly inappropriate behavior, with a number of those women having been either working with or for Cuomo at the time.

Commisso revealed her identity for the first time during an interview with “CBS This Morning” and the Albany Times Union, which will air in its entirety Monday morning.

“It was the right thing to do,” Commisso said in the interview about her decision to come forward. “The governor needs to be held accountable.”
The Governor also faces an impending impeachment that could see him removed from office in the coming weeks.
