The AG probe finds Cuomo sexually assaulted 11 women.
Calls are coming from both sides of the aisle for Governor Andrew Cuomo to leave office after a 165-page report was released by state Attorney General Letitia James. The report confirms cases of sexual assault, misconduct, and an instances of retaliation against those who spoke out.
House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) issued a statement: “Governor Cuomo must resign and be arrested immediately. President Joe Biden must immediately call for Cuomo’s resignation. In December, I was the first federal official to publicly call for an independent investigation into Governor Cuomo’s sexual harassment, abuse, and assault.”
But it’s not just Republicans asking for Cuomo’s removal.
“Time for Governor Cuomo to resign. There is no excuse, time is up,” said Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
Those sentiments were echoed by Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN), who also took the time to dig up an old Cuomo tweet referencing harassment.
“Agreed. Resign now and don’t force legislators to confront such staggering hypocrisy by impeaching you,” the tweet said.
