UPDATED: President Joe Biden joined the ever-growing chorus of politicians who have said Cuomo should resign.
“I think he should resign. I understand that the state legislature may decide to impeach. I don’t know that for a fact,” Biden said in response to a question from CNN’s Kaitlan Collins.
The New York delegation to the U.S. Congress, including Rep. Antonio Delgado, D-19, also reiterated its call for Cuomo to resign or for the Assembly to begin impeachment hearings.
Here is the original post:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women and actively tried to cover it up and retaliate against his accusers, according to a report from New York’s attorney general announced Tuesday, Aug. 3. Local and state politicians reacted swiftly, renewing their calls for Cuomo to resign.
The investigators concluded that the Governor engaged in “unwanted groping, kissing, and hugging, and making inappropriate comments.”
These new revelations caused a furious reaction among politicians, including those who represent Otsego County.
State Sen. Peter Oberacker, R-Schenevus, said the governor “must resign immediately and face criminal charges.”
“The governor said wait for the independent investigation from the attorney general, we now have that report and it is sickening to read,” Oberacker said in a media release. “The heinous acts committed by the governor are unconscionable. He clearly violated the public trust, and moreover he treated a number of women in a disgusting, unlawful manner. I commend those who courageously stood up to this predator and praise them for their bravery.”
