Gov. Andrew Cuomo refused on Friday to heed the calls from leaders within his own Democratic Party that he step down amid spiraling accusations of sexual harassment or misconduct now lodged by seven women — portraying himself as a victim of “cancel culture.”
“People know the difference between playing politics, bowing to cancel culture and the truth. Let the review proceed,” Cuomo told reporters on a hastily scheduled phone briefing.
He then vowed, “I am not going to resign.”
