Andrew Cuomo Says He Won't Bow To 'Cancel Culture' After Allegations

Six women have accused New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual misconduct, including a couple of former aides. But Cuomo isn't going anywhere, he insists.

Cuomo's latest defiance took place Friday, when Democratic members of New York’s congressional delegation called on him to resign amidst those allegations as well as the allegations that his administration had altered a report on nursing home deaths to cover up the COVID-19 death toll.

However, Cuomo told reporters he has no intention of bowing to "cancel culture." What he may not realize, of course, is that cancel culture doesn't apply to people who have actually done something wrong. Regardless, Cuomo stood his ground.

“I did not do what has been alleged, period,” he told reporters.

He later added that it was "reckless and dangerous" for people to call for his resignation without knowing the facts.

"The people of New York should not have confidence in a politician who takes a position without knowing any facts and substance,” he said, adding that “politicians take positions for all sorts of reasons, including political expediency.” He later blamed others for playing the political game, saying that “part of this is that I’m not part of the political club.”

“And you know what?” he asked. “I’m proud of it.”

The list of Dems calling for Cuomo's resignation includes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jerrold Nadler. President Joe Biden has yet to do so though, as the New York Times reported.

"President Biden and Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York have not called on Mr. Cuomo to step down, instead reiterating their support of an independent investigation into the sexual harassment claims overseen by the state attorney general, Letitia James," the Times wrote. "That investigation, conducted by two outside lawyers deputized by Ms. James, began this week."
