In fact, those seem to be among his proudest accomplishments, at least based on his resignation speech.
Outgoing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo aired a defiant, pre-recorded farewell address in his final hours in office Monday, highlighting his accomplishments while suggesting he’s the victim of a “political firecracker” that derailed his governmental career.
A Democrat, Cuomo is set to resign at the end of Monday, clearing the way for Lt. Gov. Hochul to become the state’s 57th governor at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.
Cuomo’s voluntary resignation comes three weeks after an investigation led by state Attorney General Letitia James’s office concluded Cuomo sexually harassed 11 women while in office, including nine current or former state employees.
