Double blow for Cuomo

Embattled Andrew Cuomo was dealt a double blow this week when the state attorney expanded the sexual harassment probe to investigate whether a  top aide linked access to the coronavirus vaccine to support for the governor - just as Cuomo’s communications director announced his resignation.

Investigators have interviewed at least three Democratic county executives in the expanded probe.

The executives all reportedly told then they had been contacted  by Larry Schwartz, a volunteer adviser who oversaw vaccine distribution for New York State who asked them whether they would be calling for Mr. Cuomo’s resignation.  

Meanwhile, Cuomo's comms director Peter Ajemian stepped down on Friday, to be replaced by Cuomo's longtime chief adviser Rich Azzopardi.

Cuomo's office said Ajemian accepted a job outside of government.
