Gov. Cuomo Top Aide Resigns Amid Allegations


ALBANY – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s top aide has resigned.

Melissa DeRosa’s resignation came late Sunday, just a day before the State Assembly Judiciary Committee is set to meet on the possibility of impeaching the Governor.

A New York Attorney General’s report released last week concluded Cuomo sexually harassed eleven women.

DeRosa served as his secretary, which is the highest-ranking appointed position in the state.

The AG report named her several times, while detailing a toxic workplace environment where inappropriate behavior was overlooked.

DeRosa also came under fire in February for the state under-reporting the number of COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes.

A transcript from a private conversation with lawmakers revealed she said the administration withheld the information because it was concerned about an inquiry from then-President Donald’ Trump’s Department of Justice.
