Over 121 members of New York’s legislature, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Jamaal Bowman, and others called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign.
Six women accused Cuomo of sexual harassment. Don’t forget that a report discovered his nursing home policy during COVID probably led to the deaths of 15,000 elderly people.

BREAKING: Reps. Nadler, Ocasio-Cortez, other N.Y. Democrats call on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign over sexual harassment allegations.
“Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York. Governor Cuomo must resign,” said Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), chairman of the Judiciary Committee and a longtime House member.
Lawmakers such as Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jamaal Bowman joined in pressing Cuomo to step down.
Democrats lead the call in the state legislature:
By Friday, at least 121 members of the New York State Assembly and Senate have called for the embattled governor to leave his post, including 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. There are currently 212 members within both legislative bodies.
Members of Cuomo’s own Democratic party have been more inclined to have the governor removed. On Thursday, Speaker Carl Heastie, the top Democrat in the state Assembly, launched a plan for its judiciary committee to conduct an impeachment investigation.
“The reports of accusations concerning the governor are serious,” Heastie said in a statement. “The committee will have the authority to interview witnesses, subpoena documents and evaluate evidence, as is allowed by the New York State Constitution.”
