Democratic leaders of the New York State Assembly and the New York State Senate have made a stunning move, urging Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign after more and more women continue to come forward and accuse him of sexual harassment.
“Everyday [sic] there is another account that is drawing away from the business of government,” State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said in a statement. “We have allegations about sexual harassment, a toxic work environment, the loss of credibility surrounding the Covid-19 nursing home data and questions about the construction of a major infrastructure project.”
“New York is still in the midst of this pandemic and is still facing the societal, health and economic impacts of it. We need to govern without daily distraction. For the good of the state Governor Cuomo must resign,” Stewart-Cousins continued.
Speaker of the New York State Assembly Carl Heastie also chimed in, saying in a statement of his own: “The allegations pertaining to the Governor that have been reported in recent weeks have been deeply disturbing, and have no place whatsoever in government, the workplace or anywhere else. I too share the sentiment of Senate Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins regarding the Governor’s ability to continue to lead this state. We have many challenges to address, and I think it is time for the Governor to seriously consider whether he can effectively meet the needs of the people of New York.”
The new statements from the Democratic leaders come after two more women have come forward and accused the governor of inappropriate sexual behavior.
