(The Center Square) – Despite two more women coming forward with allegations of inappropriate behavior this weekend, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday reiterated that he would not resign and pledged to not be “distracted” by the scandals dogging his administration.
“We have to get a budget done in three weeks,” he told reporters. “We have a lot of work to do, a lot of work to do for this state. This is not about me and accusations about me. The attorney general can handle that. This is about doing the people's business, and this next six months, I believe will determine the future trajectory for New York state.”
While Cuomo may be focused on the COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming budget, the news cycle for the administration has been dominated by accusations of misconduct, be it either the ongoing nursing home scandal or the sexual harassment case that is snowballing.
