This episode contains descriptions of sexual harassment.
In the spring, Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York bought himself some time.
After accusations of sexual harassment surfaced early this year, an independent investigation was begun. In the meantime, Mr. Cuomo sought to shore up his relationship with New Yorkers.
That report was released this week. And while people around the governor — and his critics — expected its content to be bad, it was worse than they had anticipated.
There have been widespread calls from the highest levels of the Democratic Party for Mr. Cuomo to resign. Will he go?
On today’s episode
Investigators into sexual harassment by Mr. Cuomo said they had corroborated the claims of 11 women who accused the governor of inappropriate behavior, including suggestive comments and instances of groping.
A new account of sexual harassment by Mr. Cuomo from a state trooper bolsters a meticulous new report on his misdeeds — and how his inner circle allowed such conduct to fester.
In the wake of the report, the New York governor has been met with consequential defections from core constituencies, including labor, white suburban lawmakers and Black political leaders.
