Cuomo resigns; Bronx officials eager to look ahead

On Tuesday morning, an embattled Andrew Cuomo resigned from his post as New York governor, ending his decade-long run in the wake of the state attorney general’s report — that found that the Democrat sexually harassed 11 women — and looming threats of impeachment from members of the state Legislature.

Cuomo’s resignation will take effect on Aug. 24 and ends a turbulent third term which included public feuds with former President Trump and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. More recently, another investigation by Attorney General Letitia James found that Cuomo’s administration undercounted nursing home deaths from COVID-19 by 50%.
