More Influential Dems Call on New York Governor to Resign

Share

State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli labeled allegations against the governor "extremely disturbing" and said they are "impairing Governor Cuomo's ability to lead, as our state struggles through a crisis and must make critical budget decisions".

Another powerful Democrat, House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler, said investigations must be allowed to run their course, but that does not mean Cuomo should remain in office.

AOC also released a statement to Twitter alongside Rep Jamaal Bowman, another member of the party's left-wing, in which they referenced both the harassment allegations and the nursing home COVID-19 deaths scandal.

I strongly support the ongoing investigation led by Attorney General James, the investigation led by the Assembly Judiciary Committee, and the inquiries by relevant District Attorney offices, however I personally believe these allegations have made it impossible for the Governor to effectively serve the people of ny, and I believe he should resign.

Tanya Selvaratnam, who detailed her abusive relationship with Schneiderman while he was attorney general, also noted to the magazine that "if Schneiderman were still the state's attorney general he would likely be tasked with investigating the accusations against Cuomo".

On Thursday, they got an investigation into all the allegations by a parliamentary committee, the first step in a possible impeachment measure.

The latest accusation, reported on Wednesday in the Times Union newspaper, appeared the most serious.

The woman hasn't filed a criminal complaint, but a lawyer for the governor said Thursday that the state reported the allegation to Albany police after the woman declined to do so herself.

"Andrew Cuomo's hands had been on my body - on my arms, my shoulders, the small of my back, my waist - often enough by late 2014 that I didn't want to go to the holiday party he was hosting for the Albany press corps at the executive mansion", the story begins. We saw it with the nursing homes. The governor and his aides argued for months that it couldn't release full figures on deaths because it had yet to verify the data.

Hours before the statement, Cuomo, a leading critic of former President Donald Trump's coronavirus pandemic response, evoked the Republican in defending himself against "cancel culture". However, I must join my colleagues in calling for Governor Andrew Cuomo to step down'. The activists were demanding Cuomo's immediate resignation.

New York Attorney General Letitia James is now investigating the allegations and hiring a law firm to conduct the probe and present the findings in a report. "An opinion without facts is irresponsible", he said. "And I've always separated the two", he said, refusing to resign. "This could be the next step".

He again denied the allegations of harassment by a number of women, including former aides and employees.

Kaitlin said Cuomo never touched her inappropriately or made explicit sexual overtures, but he repeatedly made comments about her appearance - 30 women told the publication they felt pressured to dress well and expensively - and remembers him asking questions about her dating life.

Cuomo's growing list of detractors now covers virtually every region in the state and the political power centres of New York City and Washington. "I think there's no room in the world right now for that kind of behaviour".

After his latest comments, the calls for him to quit his post redoubled, with New York's two United States senators including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer saying the "multiple, credible" allegations mean Cuomo has lost the ability to govern.
