NY lawmakers to suspend Cuomo impeachment probe after impending resignation

There are many credible sexual misconduct accusations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. However, it’s appearing more likely he won’t be getting the punishment he likley deserves.

The New York State Assembly will suspend its impeachment investigation following Cuomo’s resignation from office, Breitbart reported. The Democratic governor is stepping down effective Aug. 25 amid mounting evidence of sexual abuse and harassment. 

New York State Speaker Carl Heastie made the announcement in a statement Friday. He asserted that because Cuomo is no longer in office, his departure nullifies the probe irrespective of his assumption that the Judiciary Committee likely would have handed down the articles of impeachment.

“There are two reasons for this decision,” Heastie wrote. “First, the purpose of the Judiciary Committee’s impeachment investigation was to determine whether Governor Cuomo should remain in office. The governor’s resignation answers that directive,” he said.

“Second, we have been advised by [Judiciary Committee] Chair [Charles] Lavine – with the assistance of counsel – of the belief that the constitution does not authorize the legislature to impeach and remove an elected official who is no longer in office. Let me be clear,” Heastie added, “the committee’s work over the last several months, although not complete, did uncover credible evidence in relation to allegations that have been made in reference to the governor.”

After an investigation by Attorney General Letitia James uncovered claims that Cuomo had sexually harassed at least 11 women, the governor announced he was stepping down, Fox News reported. The subsequent shut down of the months-long impeachment investigation has angered those who feel the state owes it to taxpayers to get to the bottom of — and punish Cuomo for — his transgressions.

For his part, Cuomo has been nothing if not defiant. “In my mind, I’ve never crossed the line with anyone,” he said. “But I didn’t realize the extent to which the line has been redrawn.”

The attorney general’s investigation didn’t result in any charges, and now this probe is being shut down as well. Aside from reluctantly resigning, it doesn’t appear Cuomo has gotten his due for his alleged mistreatment of women — and that is the most significant injustice of it all.

Andy is crying in his beer. He has no place to live if he leaves the governors mansion.
May suggest something very appropriate? How about a dirty tent on Skid Row? At least until the corruption money kicks back in. Hunter can help him out!
