If Andrew Cuomo resigns, Lt. Governor Kathleen Hochul will become the first woman governor of New York State.

On Tuesday, independent investigators appointed by New York State Attorney General Letitia James concluded that Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women and retaliated against at least one. The investigators’ report also found that the governor’s office fostered a hostile work environment. On Friday, one of his accusers filed criminal charges against the governor.
