Breaking: Cuomo Resigns
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced he is “stepping aside” from his office.
Cuomo called the impeachment investigation into him “politically motivated” — but added that he was stepping down because he would “never want to be unhelpful in any way.”
He had to see that he was going to be impeached. Keep in mind that even if he wasn’t removed, he was going to have to step aside from office if impeached, as per the NY state constitution. He was doomed (and removal was likely as well, it seems to me).
He need to go, so I would say this is a positive outcome.
