Andrew Cuomo Still NY Governor on 2021-06-30

Question

Will Andrew M. Cuomo still be governor of New York on June 30, 2021?

New York has had 8 out of 56 governors resign (14%), 2 of them following allegations of misconduct, with the most recent being Elliot Spitzer on March 17, 2008, following revelations of his prostitution scandal. On February 27, 2021, the NY Times ran a front-page story on a 2nd accuser of sexual harassment on the part of Cuomo. An additional controversy is the New York COVID-19 nursing home scandal.

As of February 27, 2021, prominent calls for Cuomo's resignation within his own party have come from NY State Senator Alessandra Biaggi and NY State Assemblymember Yuh-Line Niou, with calls for an independent investigation coming from Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer, and State Sen. James Skoufis, who heads the Committee on Investigations.

Will Andrew Cuomo be governor of New York on June 30, 2021?

This question resolves positively if Andrew M. Cuomo is the governor of the State of New York on June 30, 2021 at 11:59 PM. Otherwise, this resolves negatively.
