Andrew Cuomo's net worth: NY governor lounges poolside at home amid sexual harassment scandal
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is reportedly unfazed despite repeated calls for his resignation, prospects of impeachment, and multiple criminal investigations into his serial sexual harassment scandal.
The New York Post obtained photos showing the 63-year-old New York Democrat lounging poolside with his secretary at the Executive Mansion on Thursday, August 5. Cuomo has been mostly holed up in the Albany property since Tuesday, August, 2, when Attorney General Letitia James released a bombshell investigative report alleging that the governor had sexually harassed 11 women in violation of state and federal law. In response to the report, Cuomo shared a bizarre video of himself touching and kissing strangers, denying he touched anybody inappropriately.

What is Andrew Cuomo's net worth?
Cuomo, the 56th Governor of New York, is said to have a net worth of $5million, according to CelebrityNetWorth. He is the son of the late former three-term Governor of New York Mario Cuomo and the older brother of CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.
Cuomo released the first detailed report of his personal wealth back in 2010 when he was New York's Attorney General. According to that report, he had made $1 million per year in 2004 and 2005 while working as an advisor to real estate magnate Andrew Farkas. In 2013, Cuomo's financial disclosure reported a net worth range of anywhere between $1.75 million to $3 million. In 2015, his disclosure showed $650,000 in book royalties from his memoir.
Cuomo has written several books. In 2003, he wrote a book titled "Crossroads: The Future of American Politics." More than a decade later in 2014, he wrote 'All Things Possible: Setbacks and Success in Politics and Life,' which reportedly sold fewer than 4,000 hardcover copies. In 2020, he released a controversial book titled 'American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic' and had reportedly been seeking a $4 million advance for the rights to the book, according to the New York Times. The newspaper further alleged that Cuomo had used his staff to assist with the book and that it sold fewer than 50,000 hardcover copies.
The governor, who draws an annual salary of $200,000, earned around $5 million for the book, roughly $3 million in 2020, and another $2 million in coming years, tax records later showed. That said, they also revealed that Cuomo had donated $500,000 of the proceeds to charity.
Cuomo does not have a big real estate portfolio, per records. In 2019, his ex-girlfriend of 14 years, Sandra Lee, listed their four-bedroom Colonial in Westchester County for $2 million.
Having said that, Cuomo's primary residence is at the New York State Executive Mansion on Eagle Street in downtown Albany. It is the official address for New York's governors and their families.
