New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is one of the most influential Democratic politicians in the country and is often praised for his pandemic response. But now, a devastating report by the attorney general reveals that Cuomo sexually harassed and assaulted multiple women throughout his career. Cuomo even won an Emmy for his daily television briefings, but now Cuomo, who was once considered a contender for the presidency, is facing impeachment by state lawmakers. Cuomo had it all: celebrity, fame, power. He even signed one of the most restrictive bills in the nation that punishes sexual harassment in the workplace. Yet his star is falling, which is a reminder that nobody is above the law, and justice requires the restoration of the dignity and respect of each of the women he harassed.
