Cuomo, as you might have observed, remains to be the governor of New York. And he has proven zero indicators of leaving — whilst the main focus of the political world has moved on from him as different occasions have grabbed the highlight.
Reporters are nonetheless asking Cuomo about his future plans. On Wednesday, he was requested whether or not he would resign if the continued investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James concludes that he broke any legal guidelines.
James has not supplied any timeline for when her investigation will wrap up. The New York Assembly’s Judiciary Committee can also be conducting its personal look into the allegations made in opposition to Cuomo.
None of that is to say that Cuomo has absolutely survived this scandal. At some level, the investigations will wrap up — and supply their conclusions. And Republicans are falling throughout themselves to take him on subsequent November (if he runs for a fourth time period).
But what all of it does show is that we’ve got brief political consideration spans. And that if a politician can climate the preliminary furor — and requires him (or her) to resign — they will almost all the time keep in workplace far longer than it’d look when scandals break.
The Point: Look over there! It’s a(nother) shiny object!
