After being backed into a corner by a scathing report from the state’s attorney general and the threat of impending impeachment, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo has resigned from office. “I have been too familiar with people. My sense of humor can be insensitive and off-putting. I do hug and kiss people casually, women and men. I have done it all my life. In my mind, I’ve never crossed the line with anyone but I didn’t realize the extent to which the line has been redrawn.” (His speech wasn’t as touching as his behavior.)
