On August 10, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo reportedly resigned from his post due to an inquiry on him for sexually harassing 11 women with added legal pressure and high demand for his departure by President Joe Biden and others officials.

The investigation was followed with a detailed 168-page report, which mentioned some intricate details that brought a significant lead to the case. Cuomo groped, kissed and made derogatory remarks to women including current and former government workers, a state trooper and retaliated against a woman who reportedly accused him of sexual molestation.

Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, a Democrat from the western New York counterpart, will succeed as the governor of the state until Cuomo’s term in December 2022 ends,  on the verge to become the first woman to hold this major post.

The civil investigation discovered Cuomo’s details that he has purposely violated multiple state and federal laws. Local prosecutors in Manhattan, Nassau County, Albany County, and Westchester County averred that after the report is revealed they will look into the matter by appealing independent inquiry.

Cuomo for several months denied the peaking allegations of sexual harassment against him and have renewed those denials after the investigative report was filed. A few hours later, Biden administration told reporters at the White House: “I think he should resign”.

“That is just not who I am,” Cuomo asserted in the video that “what women described as sexual advances were inoffensive gestures and comments inspired by a natural physical warmth arising from the culture in which he was raised.” In the video, he mentioned having no plans to resign, supporting the fight against the pandemic.
