Cuomo on March 15 announced that wedding receptions and catered events can now resume statewide.

In an exclusive interview with ABC News, President Joe Biden said that embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo should resign and could be prosecuted for a harassment scandal that has rankled the governor's office.

Biden said "it takes a lot of courage to come forward". "Because the governor, because of these allegations, the governor has lost the confidence of his governing partners and of many New Yorkers, and he should step down".

Among those calling for the governor's resignation are Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Mondaire Jones, Jerry Nadler and Jamaal Bowman.

On Tuesday, the Democrat leader made clear that New Yorkers need strong leadership, a role that, according to Schumer, can't be fulfilled while Cuomo is under federal investigation.

"The mounting sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Cuomo are alarming", she said. Although many have urged him to budge on his format for the market, he has been set in his idea of it being a solo operation run by the lottery as he is only interested in gaining profits for NY and not the casinos of NY.

While the White House said it is allowing the investigations to guide their decisions, many prominent Democrats have already called for Cuomo to resign. I just don't know, ' Biden added. His father, Mario Cuomo, also served as governor of the state from 1983 to 1994.

Lindsey Boylan was the first former Andrew Cuomo aide who came forward alleging sexual harassment. One of the people told the Times that Mr. Cuomo had been involved in drafting it. "I will be asking an appropriate New York District Attorney to commence an immediate investigation, and proceed as the facts merit".

The three-term governor has rejected calls for his resignation and has asked New Yorkers to await the results of the investigation, which is led by NY attorney general Letitia James.

The president visited the Philadelphia suburbs Tuesday to promote the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill he signed into law last week. Direct stimulus payments have already started hitting bank accounts - use this tool to see if you're eligible.

"Well that's a judgement for them to make about their state whether he can be effective". The administration will also be providing more avenues for people to find available vaccinations.

Andrew Cuomo's sexual misconduct allegations have gone yet another day without comment from Vice President Kamala Harris, who had been a crusader for sexual assault survivors as recently as 2018, during Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearings. He enjoys all the cliché stuff, like movies, video games, music and pizza.
