An increasing number of employees are, however, worried that their careers might suffer as a result of their boss facing criticism for two separate scandals, a former aide to Cuomo told The New York Post.
Virtually all staffers are eager for their boss to step down imminently, according to the source. "There's a deep sense within the governor's staff that he is guilty of everything, and that is weighing on people," they said.
