Kathy Hochul took office as governor of New York

The deputy governor of New York, Kathy Hochul, officially assumed the post of head of the state after the departure of Andrew Cuomo, who became a person involved in the harassment scandal.

An investigation conducted by the New York State Prosecutor’s Office revealed that 11 women, including his direct subordinates, were the objects of harassment by Cuomo, whom the governor kissed, hugged, and touched. Without disputing the claims of the victims, Cuomo stated that his penchant for tactile contacts was a manifestation of friendly participation and devoid of sexual overtones. The governor apologized to the women. U.S. President Joe Biden, Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, and U.S. senators from New York called for Cuomo’s resignation.

Monday was Cuomo’s last working day in office; Deputy Governor Hochul replaced him.

Honored to be officially sworn in as New York’s 57th Governor.

Looking forward to the full swearing-in ceremony with my family later this morning and addressing the people of New York later today,” Hochul wrote on Twitter.
