Andrew Cuomo has been Stripped Down. The Legislature voted yesterday to strip him of his emergency powers. Both the Senate and Assembly passed the measure by decisive margins. The dissenters felt it did not go far enough. The bill allows existing executive orders to remain in effect for 30 days. Any future edicts would require approval by the Legislature. The handwriting is on the wall. King Cuomo’s despotic era is coming to an end. Legislators from his own Democratic Party overwhelmingly voted against him. This portends the coming impeachment proceedings. New Yorkers can breathe a collective sigh of relief. The tyrant is alone and reviled, stripped of his powers.
