New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul will become the state's first woman chief executive, after current Governor Andrew Cuomo steps down on August 24.

Cuomo announced he would resign one week after the state's attorney general, Letitia James, released a scathing report finding that the three-term governor sexually harassed nearly a dozen women and created a hostile work environment.

Cuomo said the transition for Hochul to take over "must be seamless." In his resignation announcement on Tuesday, he called her smart and competent and said, "She can come up to speed quickly."

Hochul said she agreed with the governor's decision to step down.

1. She's a refreshing "no drama" leader.

 

NY is lucky to have her on their side.

10. Locking

Dupe, unfortunately. This 1st woman Governor news was contained up front in the Cuomo resignation OP:

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, a fellow Democrat, will serve the rest of his term when the resignation becomes effective in 14 days. She will become the state's first female governor.
