Governor Andrew Cuomo Resigns 24 Hours After Groping Accuser Comes Forward
New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo resigned Tuesday amid calls for his impeachment from top Democrats, including President Joe Biden. His resignation comes after an investigation by the state attorney general that concluded he sexually harassed 11 women and retaliated against at least one. Cuomo has maintained he did not sexually harass or retaliate against anyone, but said he was stepping down to save New Yorkers from what he called a "distraction.” His resignation is effective Aug. 24.
