Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand released a joint statement on Friday urging New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign after a series of women accused him of sexual harassment and misconduct.
“Confronting and overcoming the Covid crisis requires sure and steady leadership,” the Democrat senators said in a joint statement. “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.”
