New York Governor Kathy Hochul—who took the reins after the resignation of alleged sexual deviant Andrew Cuomo—gave an introduction at the Ranger’s NHL game prior to pick dop against the Anaheim Ducks. Hochul was met to a shower of boos.
Basically, as soon as the Democratic governor’s name was announced over the speaker system, boos poured in from fans. Hochul, dressed in Rangers gear, walked to centre ice and dropped the puck.

Hochul’s presence at the event was for “Women’s Empowerment Night” at Madison Square Garden. Hochul, an unelected governor, took over for Cuomo after he was alleged to have sexually harassed various women. Charges against him were dropped.
A recent poll has found that Hochul could still face a challenge from the person she succeeded.
According to the New York Post:
“Cuomo would trail his former running mate by just 4 points were he to enter the Democratic primary race to reclaim the governorship, the Emerson College/The Hill poll reveals.
“Hochul garners 37 percent of Democratic primary voters to 33 percent for Cuomo in the hypothetical match-up, the survey found.”
“About 16 percent of Democrats said they were undecided or chose another candidate, while 7 percent of Democrats favored Long Island Rep. Tom Suozzi and 4 percent backed Jumaane Williams, the New York City public advocate,” it said.
