Not quitting: Contrite Cuomo briefs New Yorkers on COVID-19, apologizes over scandal


Governor Andrew Cuomo held the first briefing in ten days on Wednesday, ignoring calls for his resignation amid a variety of controversies, and updated New Yorkers on the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination effort.

But his appearance was not without an apology for the allegations from three women claiming he made unwanted advances, stating that he was embarrassed and promised to do better.

Instead of announcing any career decisions in regard to three women claiming sexual harassment against him and Attorney General Letitia James launching a formal investigation, Cuomo said the state is in a new phase of the pandemic after New York received its first doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
