Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo formally launched a digital and television advertising campaign on Monday aimed at rehabilitating his image, six months after he resigned over a damning report by the state Attorney General accusing him of multiple sexual-harassment allegations.

The first of the ads, a 30-second spot entitled “Politics vs. the Law,” features a montage of news clips and headlines that seek to suggest the AG’s independent investigation into Cuomo that resulted in the report was politicized. Text at the end of the ad reads: “Political attacks won. And New Yorkers lost a proven leader.”
