Häpeällinen New Yorkin kuvernööri Andrew Cuomo jätti tehtävänsä klo 23.59. erosi maanantai-iltana välttääkseen virkasyyteoikeudenkäynnin 11 naisen syytöksistä seksuaalisesta häirinnästä. Jäähyväispuheessaan Cuomo väitti, että hänen poliittiset vastustajansa ja tiedotusvälineet kohtelivat häntä epäoikeudenmukaisesti, koska he eivät antaneet hänelle asianmukaista menettelyä puolustaakseen itseään.
On “Late Night,” Seth Meyers wasn’t buying Cuomo’s weak grievances. “Yeah, what kind of white man whose dad was also governor only gets 10 years in office?” Meyers said in response to Cuomo’s remarks. (Cuomo’s father, Mario Cuomo, was governor of New York for three terms from 1983 to 1994.)
On his last day in office, Cuomo granted clemency to six people, including former Weather Underground member David Gilbert, who was involved in an armored car robbery in 1981 that left three people dead. Meyers joked that Cuomo also “issued one pardon – and this is weird – it was for future Andrew Cuomo.” Cuomo is still facing criminal investigation relating to the harassment allegations.
Cuomo’s Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul has been sworn in as New York’s governor, becoming the first woman to hold the position. Hopefully, she is less scandal-prone than the last three governors, all of whom were embroiled in scandal.
