Calls for the resignation of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) have strengthened after it was revealed that the governor was guilty of harassing current and former employees, according to Breitbart News.
New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) conducted an investigation that took months and eventually announced that Cuomo was indeed guilty of sexual harassment.
The governor was involution of both federal and state law, according to James’ findings, and the anti-sexual harassment group Time’s Up, is calling for the governor to resign.
James made her announcement on Tuesday, after months of investigation and witnesses coming forward with their stories about troubling interactions with the high-level political.
“The independent investigation has concluded that Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women and in doing so violated federal and state law,” James said.
Cuomo reportedly harassed New York state employees “by engaging in unwelcome and nonconsensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women.”
In response to the announcement, the leftist group came to the support and encouragement of the women who came forward in a series of tweets where they called for Cuomo’s resignation:
“We acknowledge and deeply respect the courage and sacrifice of the 11 women who came forward to share their experiences of harassment and the retaliation they endured working with and for @NYGovCuomo,” the group’s tweet read.
They also thanked James for “the thoroughness of her investigation,” and said that the investigation’s findings prove “the powerful can no longer hide behind their influence and threats when people they’ve harmed are demanding accountability and justice,” and called on Cuomo to “resign immediately.”
