The last few days for Andrew Cuomo, New York State Governor and Democrat, have been really tough. Yesterday, the head of the Democratic majority in the State Senate, Andrea Stewart-Cousins asked for his resignation.
"Every day there is another problem that takes us away from government affairs," reads a statement by Stewart-Cousins. “We have allegations of sexual harassment, a toxic work environment, the loss of credibility surrounding Covid-19 nursing home data and questions about building a major infrastructure project.
“New York is still in the midst of this pandemic and is still facing its social, health and economic impacts. We must govern without daily distractions. For the good of the state, Governor Cuomo must resign ”.

There are two reasons for the resignation request:
- allegations of sexual harassment by three women, including his assistants Ana Liss and Karen Hinton. Even the slightest accusations are now unacceptable among the Democrats of the "Woke generation";
- the accusations of hiding the deaths of the elderly in the state nursing homes, with Cuomo's assistants accused of having completely rewritten the related reports. In this way they hid the devastating total of 9,000 deaths by June 2020 from the state's retirement homes;
Will this be the end of a dynasty of politicians who have made the State of New York almost its own kingdom? Andrew has so far refused to step down, but if the majority of his party turns their backs on him, he won't have much choice but to quit. The Democratic Party of New York, a dem stronghold, will emerge divided and full of grudges among the different currents.
