Washington — Following New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s announcement that he will resign, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington President Noah Bookbinder released the following statement:

“The story of Andrew Cuomo’s time as governor is one of repeated ethical failures and abuses of power. The evidence of his unethical and abusive conduct is overwhelming, leaving him with only one option: resign in disgrace. He does not get credit for doing the right thing only after repeatedly doing the wrong things. But we are thankful we all can finally close the book on his abuse of office.”
