Remember when people in the TV industry have New York Governor Andrew Cuomo an Emmy award for his COVID press briefings?
It was completely absurd, but the Trump-hating CNN-watchers of the world needed something special to cling to and this was it.
Now that Andrew Cuomo has had to resign over a sexual harassment scandal, the Emmy award has been rescinded.
What a shame.
FOX News reports:
Andrew Cuomo has International Emmy Award rescinded following sexual harassment scandal
Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had his 2020 International Emmy Award rescinded.
“The International Academy announced today that in light of the New York Attorney General’s report, and Andrew Cuomo’s subsequent resignation as Governor, it is rescinding his special 2020 International Emmy® Award,” the organization told Fox News in a statement.
“His name and any reference to his receiving the award will be eliminated from International Academy materials going forward,” it concluded.
Cuomo resigned as governor on Monday amid a sexual harassment scandal. On Tuesday, Kathy Hochul was sworn in and became New York’s first female governor.
Cuomo originally won the Founders Award “in recognition of his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic and his masterful use of television to inform and calm people around the world.”
He never should have gotten an Emmy in the first place.

Andrew Cuomo isn’t out of the woods yet.
He must be made to face the consequences for all the people who died on his watch because of his decision to put COVID patients in nursing homes.
Justice must be done.
