Disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo resigned on Tuesday, one week after Attorney General Letitia James' investigation found he "sexually harassed multiple women".

Cuomo's resignation comes a day after the Democrat offered not to seek reelection if the NYS assembly dropped impeachment proceedings. His offer was declined.

The AG released the findings of her months-long investigation into allegations that Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women, including his female staffers and a female state trooper.

Two more women came forward on Monday with allegations that Cuomo acted inappropriately toward them.

The results of the investigation were detailed in a public report released on Tuesday, Aug. 3.

The attorney general found that the governor "sexually harassed current and former New York state employees by engaging in unwelcome and non-consensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of a sexually suggestive nature that created a hostile work environment for women."

Time's Up leader and attorney Roberta Kaplan also resigned in disgrace after she was exposed for her role in discrediting Cuomo's accusers.

Cuomo was heavily criticized for sending elderly Covid-19 patients to nursing homes where thousands of residents died during the pandemic in 2020.

Cuomo's brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, took a week-long unscheduled vacation amid reports that he advised his brother to deny any wrongdoing.

Chris Cuomo is host of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," a news program that regularly covers politics.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms held a brief press conference on Saturday to announce the termination of the police officer who shot and killed an unarmed Black man on Friday night.

27-year-old Rayshard Brooks was sleeping in his car in the Wendy's drive-thru when the police woke him and attempted to arrest him for a DUI.

He was shot in the back after grabbing one officer's taser and attempting to flee.

Mayor Bottoms said the shooting was not a justifiable use of excessive force, and the officer who fired his service weapon was fired. A second officer at the scene was placed on administrative duty.

Mayor Bottoms also announced the resignation of Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields (pictured). She said Shields "offered to immediately step down" to "rebuild the trust so desperately needed throughout our community."

Shields will be reassigned to another position within the city government, and a nationwide search is underway for her replacement.

"To the family of Mr. Brooks, there are no words strong enough to express how sincerely sorry I am for your loss," said Bottoms.

A crowd formed at the Wendy's parking lot and marched holding signs on Saturday. Many Atlantans took to social media to condemn the shooting.

The fatal shooting comes three weeks after George Floyd's death at the hands of a white police officer sparked protests and unrest across the country.

Update: Surveillance video shows Brooks on the ground struggling with two Atlanta PD officers. At some point, Brooks grabbed a taser from one of the cops and pointed it at him while fleeing.
