New York has its first female Guv - Kathy Hochul, 'smart and competent'
Governor Andrew Cuomo has finally resigned after indictment of misuse of State funds and sexual misconduct. He will leave office on August 24. Impeachment investigation is also going on. Probably he may also face criminal proceedings as one of the complainants is keen to take him to the court. His successor and Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul has a variety of political experience at the local level and there are no two opinions about her. She could not suppress her joy over the seat falling vacant!

NEW YORK, Aug 14: After resigning on Tuesday, New York's Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo is set to leave office on August 24. He had resigned after allegations of misuse of State funds and sexual misconduct.

Meanwhile, an impeachment process had begun earlier and the investigation is on. Some lawmakers want impeachment to hold Cuomo accountable and prevent him from running for office again. "The impeachment investigation does not stop automatically just because the Governor resigned," they say. There is only one precedent of impeachment in New York: Impeachment of Guv William Sulzer in 1913.

Leading to his resignation, an investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James found that Cuomo sexually harassed at least 11 women. It was also found Cuomo retaliated against one employee who went public. But Cuomo held his ground saying the charges are false and politically motivated although he apologised for his actions.

Lt Gov Kathy Hochul, 62, will be the new Governor of New York. She will be the State's first female Governor. She said, "I agree with Governor Cuomo's decision to step down...As someone who has served at all levels of Government and is next in the line of succession, I am prepared to lead as New York State's 57th Governor." She was Cuomo's lieutenant for the last seven years. She said Cuomo's behaviour was "repulsive and unlawful" and admired the complainants' courage. Cuomo on his part said Kathy is "smart and competent."

Kathy said she plans to run for Governor in the State’s 2022 elections, after completing the remaining 15 months of Cuomo's term.

Kathy was first elected Lieutenant Governor of New York in 2014 as Cuomo's running mate and won reelection alongside him in 2018. She is a Buffalo native and mother of two. She was earlier a local politician and worked as an attorney. Kathy was also once an aide to US Sen Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
