Embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday claimed to be a victim of "cancel culture" after multiple New York Democrats called for his resignation amid multiple allegations of sexual harassment and revelations that his administration concealed data on COVID-19 nursing home deaths.
During a conference call with reporters, Cuomo defiantly said he would not resign even after 11 Democratic House members from New York called on him to step down.
"People know the difference between playing politics, bowing to cancel culture, and the truth," he said. "Let the review proceed, I am not going to resign."
Cuomo also suggested that he was being driven out of office because he was a political outsider, despite the fact that he's the son of a former New York governor who also served as the state's attorney general.
"Part of this is I'm not part of the political club, and you know what? I'm proud of it," Cuomo said.
