NY AG Shreds Cuomo After He Blames His Resignation on 'Cancel Culture'


New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) is taking aim at former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for claiming his resignation was the result of “cancel culture.”

In a statement Sunday, James said, “Serial sexual harasser Andrew Cuomo won’t even spare a house of worship from his lies. Even though multiple independent investigations found his victims to be credible, Cuomo continues to blame everyone but himself.”

“Cuomo wasn’t railroaded; he quit so he wouldn’t be impeached. New Yorkers are ready to move forward from this sick, pathetic man,” she added.

During remarks at God’s Battalion of Prayer Church in Brooklyn, New York, Cuomo claimed he wanted to “tell my truth” about the events that led to his resignation in August as he cast himself as a victim of “cancel culture.”

“As you probably know, I’ve gone through a difficult period the past few months. I resigned as governor, the press roasted me, my colleagues were ridiculed, my brother was fired,” he said. “It was ugly.”

He continued, “My father, God rest his soul, used to say government is an honorable profession but that politics can be a dirty business…Now that is especially true today, when the politics out there is so mean and so extreme, when even the Democratic Party chooses to cancel people that they have a disagreement with.”

The former governor went on to insist, “No one ever told me I made them feel uncomfortable. I never sensed that I caused anyone discomfort. I was trying to do the exact opposite.”

Additionally, he said, “Nothing I did violated the law or the regulations. I said from the start that I would defend any allegation that anyone wanted to bring, but the political sharks in Albany smelled blood. And then the sharks smell blood, then come.”

Finally, Cuomo addressed his resignation, which came amid the threat of impeachment proceedings, as he said, “They used cancel culture to effectively overturn an election.”

Cuomo announced he would resign in August after James released a report that found he “sexually harassed a number of State employees through unwelcome and unwanted touching, as well as by making numerous offensive and sexually suggestive comments.”
