Former Governor Andrew Cuomo, who resigned last summer amid multiple sexual harassment scandals, will not be on the Democratic primary ballot for governor come June.

Thursday was the last day Cuomo could have filed a petition and handed in the needed signatures to take part in the primary. Some people who know the disgraced ex-governor say he may be mulling over a third party run for his old job.

He would have until May 31 to gather 45,000 petition signatures to run as an Independent candidate in the November election.

Others who know Cuomo say he would never run as a third party candidate, because the lifelong Democrat would not want to be an election day spoiler, who could hand the race over to the Republican candidate.
