When I started my morning reading, I had to pay attention twice to the heading “Politico” at the bottom of the home page: “He’s nuts and he has a vendetta.”

While it could easily have been described by former President Donald Trump or his former aide Steve Bannon, who surrendered to authorities on Monday on contempt of court charges, or even any number of members of Congress, what followed the colon was more surprising:

“Cuomo won’t leave New York alone.”

An excellent and well-publicized article by Anna Gronevold described the myriad ways in which Andrew Cuomo, the disgraced former governor who resigned after multiple accusations of sexual harassment and the shameful cover-up of COVID-19 in a nursing home, simply refused to leave.

In August, a week before he finally stepped down, most New Yorkers, including more than half of New York Democrats, believed he should step down, according to a poll by the Marist Institute of Public Opinion.

The day after Attorney General Laetitia James, also a Democrat, released the details of the investigation into the harassment allegations, Cuomo’s approval for the job plummeted 16 percentage points and his disapproval rose 15 points.

In the course of his double public scandals, the entire Democratic delegation to the New York Congress called for his resignation. The National Democrats too, from Senator Chuck Schumer to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and ultimately even President Joe Biden, a former close ally, also called on him to step down.
