Andrew Cuomo made clear that he would not quit in the wake of multiple sexual misconduct allegations against him. 'I’m not going to resign,' the New York governor said at his press conference. 'I’m going to do the job the people of the state elected me to do.'
The Democrat apologised for engaging in behaviour that made anyone feel uncomfortable, but insisted he had never touched anyone inappropriately. A number of lawmakers of both parties have called on the Democratic governor to resign as the state attorney general investigates the allegations against him.
'I’m sorry for whatever pain I caused anyone. I never intended it, and I will be the better for this experience,' Cuomo said.
