New York governor Andrew Cuomo‘s daughter was seen early Saturday afternoon moving her things out of the Executive Mansion in Albany, days after her father announced his resignation.
Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo wore floral overalls and a tank top as she carried cardboard boxes, tote bags, a backpack and a ukulele case from the home into a black SUV. She then got into the car and drove off.
Michaela’s move out of the governor’s official home comes ahead of her father’s exit as governor.
The 23-year-old had stood by her father and accompanied him to Manhattan on Tuesday for the 20-minute speech announcing his resignation.
He finally quit after a report from the state attorney general found that he had sexually harassed 11 women, and democrat colleagues in the legislature turned on him.
Cuomo said he wouldn’t leave the Executive Mansion for 14 days – which expires on August 24 – and has no other home.

It’s unknown where Cuomo will move to after his last day calling the Executive Mansion home.
His last private residence was a four-bedroom, 4,129-square-foot colonial in Mount Kisco, which he shared with ex Sandra Lee from 2008 until they split in 2019.
But the property, called Lily Pond, was in her name and she sold it on December 23, 2020, for $1.85 million.
In his first interview since resigning, Cuomo told New York Magazine: ‘Um, I don’t know what I’m going to do.
‘I’m not disappearing. I have a voice, I have perspective and that’s not gonna change.’
‘And the details aren’t really that important to me to tell you the truth,’ he added.

One possible destination for the governor might be his brother and CNN anchor Chris Cuomo’s $2.9million home in the Hamptons, where Chris famously quarantined in his basement during the early stretch of the pandemic.
Another possible destination would be with his 89-year-old mother, who owns a co-op in Manhattan on Sutton Place South, which she and her late husband purchased for $595,000 in 1995.
Cuomo’s sister, Maria Cuomo-Cole along with her husband and fashion designer Kenneth Cole, have a number of holdings as well, with homes in Westchester County and Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, the Post also reported.
And in 2002, economist Jeffery Sachs, reportedly let Cuomo stay at financial district rental at 1 West Street after his divorce from Kerry Kennedy.

Cuomo will have to be gone from the mansion by August 24 – 14 days after he announced his resignation
In Cuomo’s 20-minute resignation speech, he addressed his three daughters, calling them his ‘jewels’ and saying he had ‘made mistakes and learned from them’, but insisting he was not the serial abuser the state Attorney General’s report made him out to be.
He said: ‘In many ways I see the world through the eyes of my daughters, Cara, Mariah and Michaela.
‘They are 26 and 26, twins, and 23. I have lived this experience with and through them.
‘I have sat on the couch with them hearing the ugly accusations for weeks. I’ve seen the look in their eyes and expression in their faces and it hurt.
‘I want my three jewels to know this: my greatest goal is for them to have a better future than the generations of women before them. It is still in many ways a man’s world. It always has been. We have sexism that is culturized and institutionalized.
‘My daughters have more talent and natural gifts than I ever had. I want to make sure that society allows them to fly as high as their wings will carry them. There should be no assumptions, stereotypes or limitations.
‘I want them to know from the bottom of my heart that I never did or would intentionally disrespect a woman or treat any woman differently than I would want them treated. And that is the god’s honest truth.
‘Your dad made mistakes and he apologized and he learned from it. That’s what life is all about.’
