Governor Andrew Cuomo
Governor Andrew Cuomo has bowed to pressure and resigned as governor of New York.
In a noon broadcast to the people, he apologised to the 11 women, he was accused of sexually harassing or abusing.
“The best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to governing, and therefore, that’s what I’ll do,” Cuomo said.
He said the resignation will take effect in two weeks.
It was a pathetic end to his political career, almost a year after he was hailed for his leadership during the darkest days of COVID-19
