Governor Cuomo’s top aide, Melissa DeRosa resigns

Cuomo’s top aide, Secretary to the Governor, Melissa DeRosa has resigned, she said in a statement on Sunday night.

Melissa DeRosa, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide, has resigned from her role, she told the media Sunday night, about a week after a state attorney general report found the governor had sexually harassed 11 women.

DeRosa, who joined Cuomo’s administration in 2013, eventually became one of the governor’s most trusted confidantes. She wrote in a statement to news organizations that serving the people of New York had been “the greatest honor of my life.”
