Cuomo Says He Will Not Resign Amid Multiple Scandals
On Friday, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York said in a teleconference that he would not resign amid sexual harassment allegations and criticism of his administration’s handling of nursing homes during the pandemic.
As I have said before, and I firmly believe and my administration has always represented, women have a right to come forward and be heard. And I encourage that fully, but I also want to be clear, there is still a question of the truth. I did not do what has been alleged, period. I won’t speculate about people’s possible motives, but I can tell you as a former attorney general who’s gone through this situation many times, there are often many motivations for making an allegation, and that is why you need to know the facts before you make a decision. There are now two reviews underway. No one wants them to happen more quickly and more thoroughly than I do — let them do it. I’m not going to argue this issue in the press. That is not how it is done, that is not the way it should be done.
