Off the deep end: Creep Cuomo sits poolside amid political firestorm

The Lexington Avenue line goes uptown, but not that far, lieutenant governor!

New York’s typically low profile second-in-command, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul took a Big Apple subway ride late Wednesday, in a trip that went unnoticed until it was publicized by her suddenly more active staff with a Twitter post.

The Buffalo resident remains a press conference away from replacing embattled Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has been holed up in the Executive Mansion, where he was spotted by The Post poolside on Thursday.

“Spotted: @LtGovHochulNY decided that the quickest way to get to Harlem during rush hour to welcome the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women was to take the subway,” her spokesman, Bryan Lesswing, wrote in a late-Wednesday posting on the social media website.

The trip came as calls for Cuomo’s resignation crescendoed following a damning report from state Attorney General Letitia James that revealed the three-term executive sexually harassed or groped 11 different state employees, including aides and a state trooper.

The Buffalo native would assume control of the state — including the MTA, which runs the city’s subways and buses — if Cuomo departs or if lawmakers make good on their renewed push to impeach and remove him.

Photos posted by her office on Twitter show Hochul donning a ball cap inscribed with ‘Fight Like A Girl’ as she navigated the Lexington Avenue subway’s 59th Street station for the trip uptown on a 6 train.

A representative for Hochul did not immediately respond to requests for additional details or for comment.
