During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Melissa DeRosa became a familiar face as she sat by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s side during his popular daily briefings. As his top aide, she also stood by him amid a barrage of sexual harassment allegations, which led to Cuomo’s resignation in August 2021. Two years later, DeRosa returns with a memoir called “What’s Left Unsaid: My Life at the Center of Power, Politics & Crisis.”
She joined NY1’s Errol Louis to discuss her book and the many allegations Cuomo faced. They also discussed the status of the #MeToo movement, as well as her thoughts on Gov. Kathy Hochul. Finally, they talked about some of the decisions the administration made as New York City faced an unprecedented pandemic in March 2020.
