ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — State University of New York Chancellor James Malatras said he will resign amid criticism for sending text messages mocking one of the women who later accused former Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.

Calls for Malatras’ resignation or removal began after state Attorney General Letitia James late last month made public transcripts and evidence from a probe of sexual harassment allegations that forced Cuomo from office.

A text exchange from 2019 involving Malatras and other Cuomo allies showed them privately mocking Lindsey Boylan, a former economic development official who would later become the first woman to publicly accuse Cuomo.

His resignation is effective Jan. 14.
