ALBANY – The Republican members of the New York State Assembly’s Judiciary Committee are continuing to push to impeach Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The six GOP lawmakers on the committee announced their stance Wednesday morning in a statement.

The reasoning, the Assembly members say, is to give New Yorkers access to all of the information obtained during their month’s long investigation.

“We intend to hold Gov. Andrew Cuomo accountable on behalf of his victims, including the 15,000 innocent lives lost in nursing homes,” the statement read. “This has been a thorough; significant endeavor, and we will strive to bring closure to all of the grieving families.”

Assembly members Michael Montesano, Mike Norrries, Mary Beth Walsh, Marjorie Byrnes, Keith Brown and Michael Tannousis are among the GOP members.

Last week at this time, the majority of state Assembly members supported beginning impeachment proceedings against Cuomo if he did not resign over investigative findings that he sexually harassed at least 11 women.
