More Democrat members of Congress are now calling on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign. The latest include Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) who issued this joint statement:
“Confronting and overcoming the Covid crisis requires sure and steady leadership. We commend the brave actions of the individuals who have come forward with serious allegations of abuse and misconduct. Due to the multiple, credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations, it is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of New York. Governor Cuomo should resign.”
It follows a report in New York magazine that there could be as many as 30 accusers speaking out about alleged bullying. At the time of the writing, Cuomo said he would not resign.
