New York Governor Andrew Cuomo flat-out refused to resign over the weekend despite new allegations of inappropriate behavior from former staffers; saying “there is no way I resign” when asked by reporters.
“Every day there is another account that is drawing away from the business of government,” NY Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said in a statement. “New York is still in the midst of this pandemic and is still facing the societal, health and economic impacts of it. We need to govern without daily distraction. For the good of the state Governor Cuomo must resign.”
“There is no way I resign,” Cuomo told reporters.
“They don’t override the people’s will, they don’t get to override elections,” he said. “I was elected by the people of New York state. I wasn’t elected by politicians.”

GRAHAM on HANNITY: I Haven’t Had One Reporter Ask Me About Andrew Cuomo
Senator Lindsey Graham spoke with Sean Hannity Monday night to discuss the media’s blatant double-standard regarding Andrew Cuomo; saying not a single reporter has asked him about the New York Governor.
“I don’t know the case here. I believe in due process and presumption of innocence,” said Hannity.
“The Democratic Party is now piling on Andrew Cuomo because he’s made a lot of enemies. But we’ve been consistent… They’re now giving Cuomo a complete pass,” said Graham. “Schumer accused all Republicans of supporting sexual assault. Have you heard him say one word about this?”
“The idea that Kavanaugh was guilty was pervasive. I haven’t had one person ask me about the accusations against Governor Cuomo from the media, not one,” he added.
