A NY Post guy ask’s an interesting question…..
Andrew Cuomo ‘says he’s gonna step down….
He’s already said out loud he thinks he could beat an impeachment try…
The Lt. Governor Hochul is all over the media talking about what she wants to do….
NY Governor Andrew Cuomo seems to be back at work with the media diverted from focusing on him…
On Monday, Andrew Cuomo announced all health care workers in the state of New York must be vaccinated by Sept. 27.
The announcement came six days after Cuomo announced he was resigning as governor, and eight days before he said he would depart the governorship.
Smack dab in the middle of packing, he simply imposed a mandate on 450,000 people that will take effect a month after his departure from the governor’s mansion. Cuomo is the lamest duck in the history of lame ducks. But he ain’t acting like one.
As a moral matter, the guy has no business making unilateral rules that are to take effect 32 days after he’s gone. But then, the guy really had no business unilaterally deciding he was going to remain governor for two weeks after his resignation.
Robert Bentley, who resigned as governor of Alabama in 2017 as part of a deal to avoid charges, was out the minute he made his announcement. Eric Greitens, who resigned as governor of Missouri in 2018 in the midst of a scandal, quit on a Tuesday and was out by Friday.
Not our Andrew. He gave the state two weeks’ notice, like he was our cleaning lady.
Or did he?
Has anyone seen a formal resignation letter from Cuomo with a signature at the bottom? Surely such a formal document is legally necessary, given the nature of the powers Cuomo holds as chief executive of the state of New York. He must forswear his office as a matter of functional law so that it can be vacated before his successor, Kathy Hochul, is sworn in.
His resignation is supposed to take effect in eight days.
Where is the letter?….
