NEW YORK – U.S. Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand are now among both Democrats and Republicans calling for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign.

The two Democrats released a statement announcing their stance on Cuomo’s unfolding sexual harassment scandal.







“Confronting and overcoming the Covid crisis requires sure and steady leadership,” they said. “We commend the brave actions of the individuals who have come forward with serious allegations of abuse and misconduct.”

“Due to the multiple, credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations, it is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of New York. Governor Cuomo should resign,” they furthered.







Speaking Friday with reporters via telephone, the Governor continued his tune of asking New Yorkers to “wait for the facts” before rendering judgment and that he will not resign.

“I’m not elected by the politicians, I’m elected by the people,” said Cuomo. “I’m not part of the political club, and I’m proud of that.”













“As I told New Yorkers many times there are facts, and there are opinions and I always separated the two,” furthered Cuomo. “Politicians who don’t know a single fact but yet form a comparison and opinion are in my opinion reckless and dangerous.”

The top Democrat in the state Assembly, Speaker Carl Heastie, on Thursday backed a plan for its judiciary committee to launch an impeachment investigation.

  1. Sen Schumer, deep deep shame upon you for seeking the resignation of Gov Andrew Cuomo. As a rape survivor, I can tell you that Gov Cuomo is not that type of man. His shows of compassion, affection are not from a lesser man. As a Veteran, I do not care for many of your policies. But that you tout unproven allegations, I certainly wonder who paid you and how much?? Shame on you. Hadn’t thought you were such a goniff!

  2. He is the perfect example of using “Power” to sexually assault women in the workplace.

    He is also the perfect example of Term Limits.
