After facing immense disgrace for his inappropriate behavior while in office, former Governor Andrew Cuomo is now planning to make his first public appearance since he resigned three months back.
On Sunday, a report suggested that Cuomo is attempting to revamp his image, especially since he dined with incumbent Mayor Eric Adams. According to the Washington Post, Cuomo and his aides have recently been “intensifying an effort to revive his public standing.”
Earlier on, in November, the Post had also suggested that Cuomo wanted to renew his political ambitions but was held back after Attorney General Letitia James’ office launched an investigation that ultimately concluded that Cuomo harassed multiple female staffers.
The outlet also reported that aides have claimed that Cuomo “never explicitly mentioned a campaign” but instead is exploring his political options. “He’s most interested in clearing his name,” New York State Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs told the paper. “My advice would be, he needs time to pass before any moves to re-enter public life. But is that possible in the future? In America, anything’s possible.”
When asked about the report, Cuomo’s spokesperson Rich Azzopardi said, “There are a lot of silly rumors running around this town, and we can’t help it if some people are still fixated on us.”
