During a press conference today, Mr Cuomo continued to deny many of the accusations of unwanted physical contact with women. He then confirmed he would be stepping down and let the “government get back to governing”.
He said: “Wasting energy on distractions is the last thing that state government should be doing, and I can not be the cause of that.
“The best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to governing.
“It’s not about ‘me,’ it’s about ‘we’.”
His resignation will be effective in 14 days, according to the governor’s statements.
