NY State Senate Majority Leader calls on Cuomo to resign

New York Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D) has made the monumental decision to demand the resignation of  Gov. Andrew Cuomo following accusations by two additional women regarding sexual harassment.

Stewart-Cousins issued a statement Sunday urging the governor to resign.

Every day there is another account that is drawing away from the business of government. 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.

The statement comes following criticism against calling for the governor’s resignation after three women had previously stepped forward with sexual harassment allegations.

Stewart-Cousins is not alone. New York Assembly Majority Leader Carl Heastie provided her own statement on the issue:

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.

Cuomo has thus far denied all accusations. On Sunday, the governor reiterated he has no plans to resign.

New York Attorney General Letitia James  has initiated an investigation into the accusations of sexual harassment against Cuomo. With his own party now calling for his resignation, the governor faces a dire situation far beyond the controversy regarding his nursing home COVID-19 death reports.

If there was a reason for Cuomos resignation up front and for most it should be all the Deaths he caused for so many older people. I bet his mother was protected. He sit on his unroyal throne acting like he was a President or a king and all the while sending all those precious elderly people to their death,and he knew it. That’s why he tried to cover it up. He lied.

I agree Joan, And it should be part of his sentencing that he be placed in public prison environs so he can be of access to all prisoners. I’m sure they know how to treat a ‘pervert’ very well !!

If he did “Kill” all of those older people and /or any people any in general then he needs to stand before the JUDGE”! and be prosecuted for murder (in the highest degree) as any (small) citizen would have to be punished for murder !!! Why aren’t these, now dead older peoples families, making a huge stink about the hate and harm that he has caused their families ???!!!

Coumo is a devil in his own right and needs to be treated as any other criminal thug.

There are family members speaking up about their family members deaths including Janice Dean because of Cuomos actions and coverup. Thats why its being reported. Without the efforts of Janice Dean and other families speaking up the cover up of Cuomos despicable actions would have been successful and would never have been reported. Know he needs to be held responsible for their deaths.

If Coumo is charged with indecent behavior, the Joe Biden should also be charged after all of his touchy feely with all those women and children.

Yes, I agree that Cuomo should resign but he’s not the only one that need to go. You know, I Know and the world knows that the answer to many of our problems is Term limits. Please, Lets just get it done.

Term limits is not the only problem facing us. The Democrats want gun control( CONFISCATION from
law abiding citizens) to protect the killers and robbers from getting hurt. They also want to eliminate
the Second Amendment yjat gives us some protection from would be- Dictators like them.

Cuomo is a democrat and democrats have no honor. He will not resign. Democrats just do not do things like that regardless of what they do. Look at Kennedy as an example. He killed a gal and nothing happened to him. Cuomo killed 15000 and nothing will happen to him.

I’m sure her family was paid off. Generously!! Yup! The Democrats never have to pay. Antifa devils are running free while the capital invaders will be sent up the river. As bad as that was, I still don’t agree with what they did.
