Cuomo keeps teasing electoral run
Deanna Garcia reports in Politico that former Gov. Andrew Cuomo won't say if he will run for office again. "I have a lot of options open, and I'm considering them," Cuomo said March 17 in New York City. With $16 million in his campaign coffers in January and Cuomo ads running on television, it seems like he is running for something. The state's board of elections recently implied that he is. "Although former Gov. Cuomo has not announced any explicit plan to run for a specific public office, his conduct fits the definition of candidate set forth in Election Law," New York's Board of Elections Chief Enforcement Counsel Michael L. Johnson wrote in response to a complaint filed by good government groups over Cuomo's use of campaign funds since his resignation in August. While Cuomo did tease another go at electoral politics, he did not comment on the 11 women who accuse him of sexual harassment, nor did he mention New York Comptroller Tom DiNapoli's report blaming him for a lack of transparency over COVID-19 deaths in state nursing homes.
