Poll: Majority of New Yorkers think Cuomo should face criminal charges

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has already resigned after sexual misconduct accusations against him were found to be credible. New Yorkers think the Democratic governor deserves more severe consequences, however.

A majority of New Yorkers want Cuomo to face criminal charges for allegedly sexually harassing as many as 11 women, Breitbart reported. Although Cuomo has denied wrongdoing, New York Attorney General Letitia James’s investigation found those allegations to be credible.

Voters in New York overwhelmingly support seeing Cuomo in handcuffs, a Data for Progress survey found. Overall, 52% of voters wanted Cuomo to face criminal charges while only 29% opposed, making it a solid margin of 23 points.

Furthermore, 78% of New Yorkers believe the attorney general’s report, finding it either “very” to “somewhat” credible. The poll, conducted between Aug. 6 and Aug. 11, found that 63% of voters thought legislators should impeach the governor.

Cuomo has yet to express any remorse for his actions, The Hill reported. While he ultimately announced his intention to resign, he did so while still deflecting the blame.

“This is one of the most challenging times for government in a generation. Government really needs to function today. Government needs to perform,” the governor said Aug. 10. “It is a matter of life and death, government operations. And wasting energy on distractions is the last thing that state government should be doing,” he said of the allegations.

“I think, given the circumstances, the best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to governing. And therefore, that’s what I’ll do,” Cuomo stated.

Cuomo has allegedly groped, kissed, or otherwise made unwanted advances at several women while in office. Stepping down from his position as governor is a start, but true justice won’t be served until criminal charges are brought against him. If he’s truly innocent as he claims, then he should have nothing to worry about.
