New York's two U.S. Senators are joining the call for Governor Cuomo to resign amid allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior.
Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, both Democrats, released the following joint statement Friday.
“Confronting and overcoming the Covid crisis requires sure and steady leadership. 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.”
This comes after a group of eleven New York Democrats in the House also called for Governor Cuomo's resignation.
Speaking with reporters on Friday, Governor Cuomo says he will not step down.
