Tim KorsoAll materialsWrite to the authorCuomo was the New York state’s attorney general prior to becoming its governor. He lost his governorship this year following a revelation of hidden death statistics in the state during the first stages of the Covid pandemic, and subsequently the publicizing of numerous accusations of sexual misconduct made by former employees. Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is mulling running for the office of state attorney general in 2022, the New York Post reported, citing an anonymous source. According to the newspaper, he mentioned the idea to Democratic officials and political insiders.”People in Cuomo’s orbit are tossing it out there”, the source said.The ex-governor reportedly still has around $18 million in his campaign coffer. He is also one of the most well-known names among candidates, running against a handful of district attorneys, state senators, a professor and a congressional lawmaker.
Cuomo recently told the New York Magazine, however, that he was still not sure what his future career would look like. He asserted that he would battle accusations of sexual misconduct in court coming from several of his former female employees. The next court proceeding is currently scheduled for January 2022.
Andrew Cuomo Wanted Female Staffers to Defend Him ‘a la Joe Biden’ in Sexual Harassment Case11 November, 06:43 GMTMultiple ex-staffers earlier claimed that Cuomo on more than one occasion made unwanted sexual advances, forcibly touching them without consent. The former governor has adamantly denied the accusations, calling the case against him a part of New York Attorney General Letitia James’ plan to oust him and run for governor herself.
Incidentally, James announced her gubernatorial bid soon after Cuomo resigned under the pressure of blowback from the sexual misconduct scandal.
