NY AG releases Cuomo Report

https://www.nytimes.com/live/2021/08/03 ... drew-cuomo

Hardly a shock but to be honest I don't think anything will happen and he will win his next election with at least 50% of the vote. I watched his response and I wasn't impressed. Let's please discuss this without the drama.
