NEW YORK – Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo suffered another loss just shortly after leaving office on Tuesday when his Emmy Award was revoked. 

The global TV academy announced the award, presented to Cuomo for his daily televised briefings on the Coronavirus Pandemic last year, was recalled after he resigned amid allegations of sexual harassment.








Cuomo used his more than 100 Powerpoint-driven slideshows and his sometimes emotional, sometimes acerbic style to provide daily updates and detail his administration’s efforts to guide the state through the pandemic, which has left tens of thousands of New Yorkers dead.

The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences explains that the group will remove any reference to Cuomo in its official materials.









 The former Governor officially left office at 12 a.m. Tuesday, two weeks after announcing that he would leave office following an investigation that found he had sexually harassed multiple women.

The report marked a stunning downfall for Cuomo, whose leadership during the COVID-19 crisis drew widespread praise and accolades, including from the television academy, and led to a book deal for him worth at least $5 million.
