Andrew Cuomo has insisted that God still has plans for his political career, citing Psalm 46 specifically. Although the former New York Governor apologized for past misconduct, he was defiant in front of a Brooklyn church crowd at a recent appearance.
The Christian Post reports that recent public comments had Cuomo blaming changing values and “political correctness” Cuomo’s fall from grace. No legal charges were ever filed against the former governor, although New York Attorney General Letitia James found several accusations of sexual harassment to be credible. The Post continues:
Quoting copious amounts of Scripture and declaring “God’s not finished with me yet,” former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who resigned last August after he was accused of sexually harassing several women, told a congregation in Brooklyn Sunday that the allegations were part of a political hit job that exploited “cancel culture” to remove him from office.
In his first public comments since his resignation, Cuomo, whose father Mario Cuomo served as the state’s 52nd governor, spoke from the pulpit of God’s Battalion of Prayer Church. The church is led by Pastor Alfred S. Cockfield.
“My father, God rest his soul, used to say government is an honorable profession but that politics can be a dirty business,” he told the audience. “Now, that is especially true today when this politics out there is so mean and so extreme. When even the Democratic Party chooses to cancel people that they have a disagreement with.”
The 64-year-old said that his behavior has been consistent in his 40 years in public life. But he noted that he failed to update that behavior with current cultural norms and apologized for that failure.
“Last February, several women raised issues about my behavior. As I said then, and as I say in this holy hall today, my behavior has been the same for 40 years in public life. You have seen me many, many times, and that has been my behavior,” he said.
