The New York Post reports that during Cuomo's hour-long radio appearance, the former NY Gov. stated that he has "no regrets" during his time in public office, and denied all allegations that have been levied against him, including the sexual harassment allegations from 11 different women and the notorious nursing home coverup scandal.
Despite New York Attorney General Leticia James' findings that allegedly substantiate the women's claims of sexual misconduct, Cuomo brushed it off and told the radio host that it was a mere "political report," according to the outlet. Cuomo resigned following James' investigation to reportedly avoid impeachment.
The radio host also grilled Andrew Cuomo on his historic coverup during the worldwide covid pandemic, where he had placed Covid-19 positive patients to live among seniors in nursing care facilities, a decision that resulted in "possibly more than 1,000 fatalities," according to a study from Empire Center.
The scandal revealed that former New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo's top advisers lobbied state health officials to strip a public report which showed that more nursing home and elderly care facility residents had died of the coronavirus than the administration had previously acknowledged.
Cuomo even received numerous awards from health officials in regard to his "leadership" during the coronavirus pandemic, and was in the process of writing a book about how he successfully led his state through the outbreak when the allegations were brought to light.
In addition to the sex abuse and Covid-19 nursing home scandals, Cuomo also failed to take responsibility for New York's vast increase in crime despite signing soft-on-crime policies into law which resulted in a crime-ridden Big Apple, The Post reports.
After Cuomo signed Criminal Justice Reform bills into New York state law in 2019, which included the highly controversial "no bail" bill, New York City saw a 32 percent increase in felonies, including 48 percent of those being murders, according to the paper.
When the radio host asked Cuomo how the Big Apple can work towards decreasing the crime rate, the former Governor blamed police officers and said, the city needs "police who are not afraid to do their job."
To conclude the interview, the host asked Cuomo if he would consider another run for public office, to which he replied, "All options are open."
Andrew Cuomo resigned as New York Governor in August 2021 following serious accusations of repeated sexual misconduct which he claims had "no factual and credible basis," stating that his lawyers have already raised "serious issues and flaws that should concern all New Yorkers."
Cuomo said that while it was his instinct to fight against accusations against him, he did not want to waste government resources, so his love of New York directed his decision to step down. He also said that the best way he could help was to "step aside and let government get back to governing."
