Andrew Cuomo’s Fall From Grace



FEATURING ROSS BARKAN – When asked about whether New York Governor Andrew Cuomo should resign in the wake of multiple scandals, President Joe Biden on Sunday said he would like to wait for the outcome of an investigation that is underway. Cuomo, who less than a year ago was hailed as a national hero for his response to the coronavirus pandemic, is now fighting for his political life. So far Gov. Cuomo has refused to resign.
