Cuomo Gives Farewell Address Before Resignation in Wake of Scandals

By  | 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo will not run for public office again, top aide Melissa DeRosa confirmed Monday shortly before the Democrat’s planned “farewell address” to the people of New York. His scandal-plagued resignation takes effect just before midnight.

Cuomo, 63, is set to end his shortened third term at 11:59 p.m., just under two weeks after he announced he would resign rather than face a likely impeachment battle over sexual harassment allegations.
