The New York State assembly has suddenly stopped it’s suspension of Governor Cuomo in the recent week of his resignation. According to judiciary committee chair Charles Levine there were a number of reasons for the suspension of the cuomo investigation.
The main reason being that the investigation was to consider whether Cuomo would still be in office. Investigations were launched back in March and evidence of sexual harassment and misconduct were found. New York Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, will replace Cuomo on August 24. Hochul has stated she intends to run for re-election in her own right next year.
The former Governor’s last words before his resignation were, “New York tough means New York loving, and I love New York and I love you.” “I would never want to be unhelpful in any way, and I think given the circumstances, the best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to governing, and therefore, that’s what I’ll do.”
