The investigation previously confirmed the fact of sexual harassment by Andrew Cuomo against subordinates.
Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand from New York called on the governor of this state, Andrew Cuomo, to resign after an investigation confirmed the fact of sexual harassment by his subordinates. This is stated in the statement of the senators, distributed on Tuesday.
“As we stated earlier, the described actions of the governor are extremely outrageous, inappropriate, and absolutely unacceptable,” the senators noted. Earlier on Tuesday, state Attorney General Letitia James said that following the results of the investigation, it was found that Cuomo sexually harassed several girls from among his subordinates, as well as those who are not related to the state administration. At the moment, the state prosecutor’s office has not filed any charges against Cuomo. The senators stressed that the report of the prosecutor’s office “confirms the allegations voiced earlier by several brave women.”
“The law applies to everyone, including elected officials,” the lawmakers noted. – The people of New York deserve a leader with the best qualities in the place of the governor. We continue to believe that Governor [Cuomo] should resign.” Cuomo previously rejected the findings of the investigation, stressing that “he never inappropriately touched anyone and did not commit indecent acts of a sexual nature.”
