Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo spoke in Brooklyn publicly for the first time since he resigned.
The former governor says he chose to defend his name at a church in East Flatbush because his faith has been getting him through a difficult time for him.
Cuomo told the crowd that cancel culture is a cancer and that he was unfairly and undemocratically forced out of his position because other politicians wanted his job.
State Attorney General Letitia James brought 11 violations against Cuomo in August 2021 after allegations surfaced that he sexually harassed women in the workplace.
Cuomo says not a single allegation has proven to constitute a violation of the law to bring a case against him.
"Six district attorneys from all across the state; Democrat, Republican, Black, white, tens of millions of dollars spent in investigations - your money, not theirs - and they didn't find a single case," Cuomo says.
He says he is going to continue to fight against the allegations against him.
James' campaign released a statement saying, “Serial sexual harasser Andrew Cuomo won’t even spare a house of worship from his lies. Even though multiple independent investigations found his victims to be credible, Cuomo continues to blame everyone but himself. Cuomo wasn’t railroaded; he quit so he wouldn't be impeached. New Yorkers are ready to move forward from this sick, pathetic man.”
