BREAKING: Governor Andrew #Cuomo is resigning following an investigation that found he sexually harassed 11 women.
Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul will take Cuomo’s place and will become New York’s 1st female governor.
In his statement to New Yorkers today, #Cuomo said, “I think that, given the circumstances, the best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to government.”
UPDATE: The state Assembly will suspend the impeachment investigation into Cuomo, the speaker announced today.
The suspension will take effect once Cuomo, who resigned following a sexual harassment scandal, leaves office effective 8/25.
