Besieged by harassment allegations, a somber New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo apologized Wednesday, saying he “learned an important lesson” about his own behavior around women, but he said he intended to remain in office.

“I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable,” Cuomo said at a Wednesday press conference. “It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it.”

Cuomo said he will “fully cooperate” with the state attorney general’s investigation into sexual harassment allegations. Attorney General Letitia James is in the process of selecting an outside law firm to conduct an investigation into the allegations and produce a report that will be made publicly.

Cuomo had avoided public appearances for days as some fellow Democrats call for him to resign. Before Wednesday’s press conference, the governor last spoke to reporters during a teleconference call on Feb. 22. His last media briefing on video was Feb. 19.

He hadn’t spoken publicly since giving New York Attorney General Letitia James a referral to investigate claims that he harassed at least three women — two of them in his administration.

  1. I am not clear why inappropriate behavior around 3 women, is gaining coumo so much more negative attention than mass murder of 13,000 innocent nursing home residents? or tens of thousands of people banished from their Shuls last Hoshana Rabba & Simchas Torah?
    Not to mention, that these 3 women is just an allegation:- “He said – She said”, whereas the murders of 13,000 residents & illegal closure of all Shuls for sure happened.

  2. I hope he keeps strong and doesn’t resign. All we need now is someone that’s not going to be strict on covid laws and the deaths will skyrocket.

  3. I actually think he is correct. He made a mistake. He Is a low life idiot and that doesn’t define his accomplishments. Not that he has any, but remove him on those merits, not on these. this is part of cancel culture. But I think he should still be removed because he would never afford the same standards to an opponent. So he should sleep in the bed he made. But overall, this is a dangerous standard of cancel culture and it supporting it has consequences, we see here with Coumo.

  4. NYS has very strict laws about harassment in the workplace. As the governor, he would never afford anyone the leniency to say they made a mistake. Why should get off the hook by just saying so? He clearly has not shown any remorse. His only regret is getting caught. (As proven by his response with the nursing home numbers…)

  5. Again, you sheeple are falling for the false narritive put out by the media. Coumo’s problem and talk of impeachment should have nothing to do with nonsense claims by a couple of “Karens”. These are the same types of woke’s who went after Kavanaugh and Roy Moore. A couple of ugly broads looking for their 15 minutes of fame.
    The real true problem is Cuomo’s MURDERING of 15,000 seniors! That is why the dictator should be arrested immediately before he kills others!

  6. For years now there have been multiple harassment excuses: I didn’t mean it, it was a joke, I wasn’t thinking, I would never act that way etc etc etc. Is Cuomo as stupid as he makes out? Does he really think THE PUBLIC is as stupid as he makes out? Does he seriously think the laws don’t apply to him? He knows he crossed boundaries, but hey! He’s the Governor! He is Teflon.

    Every company has anti-harassment policies & training sessions for its employees. Why? Because it’s a problem in the workplace. Does he believe there aren’t clear policies in Albany? My husband has to sit through these sessions every so often online, but he hasn’t been in the office in two years, he works exclusively from home. So Cuomo is lying through his teeth. Being the bully he is, he knows how to stop any complaints.

    I despise the MeToo movement but I understand why it was necessary. The Cuomos and the Harvey Weinsteins, the Bill Clintons, the Anthony Weiners, the Eliot Spitzers, all created these problems. Use your power to force people (men & women) to capitulate. This is the tip of the iceberg of his immorality and lack of ethics.

    Cuomo has to go! Repeat after me: CUOMO HAS TO GO!

  7. Would this snake accept this excuse from anyone else ? why does he think we should accept this lie. He is a murderer with a suit and tie. He should disappear just like Gov. Spitzer . Enough already

  8. Not Getting Involved, I guess women’s rights get thrown out the window when the prodigal son Dr. Cuomo is involved. Does he or you have no shame?
