The legislative investigation has also revealed that the former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo downplayed Covid-19 numbers to look good. He had resigned following sexual harassment allegations in August 2021.
Hochul, a 62-year-old Democrat from Buffalo, was expected to deliver remarks and be sworn-in Tuesday in Albany for her 16-month term.
'As someone who has served at all levels of government and is next in the line of succession, I am prepared to lead as New York State's 57th Governor,' Hochul said in a statement on Tuesday.
The decision came a week after New York's attorney general released the results of an investigation that found Cuomo sexually harassed at least 11 women.
NY Governor Andrew Cuomo has been asked to resign from various quarters, including President Joe Biden himself, after probe finds him he harassed 11 women sexually.
The nearly five-month investigation, conducted by two outside lawyers who spoke to 179 people, found that the Cuomo administration was a “hostile work environment” and that it was “rife with fear and intimidation”.
