Ouch! From Bloomberg:

Andrew Cuomo Has to Return $5 Million Book Payment, New York Ethics Panel Says
New York state’s ethics commission voted Tuesday to require former Governor Andrew Cuomo to repay the more than $5 million in compensation he received for a book he wrote in 2020 on his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Joint Commission on Public Ethics voted 11-2 on a resolution requiring Cuomo to repay, within 30 days, all the compensation he earned from sales of his 2020 book, “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Cuomo, who resigned in August over sexual-harassment allegations, has been criticized for using public resources, including state workers, to write the book. The lucrative book contract increased Cuomo’s net income more than fivefold to $1.5 million in 2020, from just over $280,000 in 2019, according to tax documents.

That's gonna hurt... Could not happen to a nicer sex-pest.
