New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has resigned following sexual harassment allegations.
In a report last week, Mr Cuomo, a Democrat, was found to have groped, kissed, or made suggestive comments to 11 women in violation of the law, prompting prosecutors to launch a criminal investigation and calls for him to resign or for him to be impeached.
President Joe Biden called on him to quit.
Mr Cuomo’s decision will take effect in two weeks. He would have likely faced impeachment in the state’s legislature.
He was on his third-term as New York governor.
