ALBANY – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is losing more support from his state, and that includes members of his own party.

On Monday, the State Assembly’s Judiciary Committee announced it will soon hold hearings to determine if it will support moving forward with impeachment.

Last week, the New York Attorney General’s office released its findings regarding numerous allegations against Cuomo and investigators determined that the governor harassed 11 women.

A majority of New York State Senators as well House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden have called for Cuomo to resign.

New York State Assembly Speaker and Democrat Carl Heastie spoke to the allegations.

“We’re at a historic moment in our state’s modern history. For the first time in more than 100 years the assembly is undertaking an impeachment investigation of a sitting governor,” said Heastie. “Future generations will look to us and how we conducted ourselves in this moment.”

The Governor is even losing support from his own inner circle as top aide Melissa DeRosa stepped down on Sunday. She did not give a specific reason for her departure but said that serving New York was “the greatest honor in her life.”

Cuomo has repeatedly denied the sexual allegations, saying he never made inappropriate advances.
