New York Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin resigned Tuesday, just hours after being indicted on bribery and fraud charges tied to an illegal campaign finance scheme.⁠

“I have accepted Brian Benjamin’s resignation effective immediately,” Gov. Kathy Hochul announced in a statement late Tuesday afternoon. “While the legal process plays out, it is clear to both of us that he cannot continue to serve as Lieutenant Governor. New Yorkers deserve absolute confidence in their government, and I will continue working every day to deliver for them.”⁠

When Gov. Andrew Cuomo resigned last year after several women accused him of sexual misconduct, the sitting lieutenant governor, Hochul, was elevated to replace him. She then appointed Benjamin as her lieutenant governor. Hochul had expressed her support for Benjamin last week.⁠

  1. The GOP was against this shady appointment from day one. This man believes in defunding the police, does not believe in enforcing the rule of law and does not support the constitution of America. He’s a left wing nut job!
