Andrew Cuomo faces calls for resignation from powerful Democrats
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s remaining political support among top Democrats crumbled in the wake of a report that found he sexually harassed multiple women.
Cuomo has insisted he did nothing wrong and made no indication in a video response that he will step down. But the investigation — which detailed the allegations of 11 women and found that Cuomo engaged in “unwelcome and nonconsensual touching,” among other allegations — not only reawakened calls for his resignation from familiar foes within the party but led others, including President Joe Biden, to issue fresh ones for his departure from Albany and propelled talk of impeachment by the state Legislature.
In all, the public outcry from Democrats amounts to the most serious challenge yet to Cuomo’s 11-year grip on New York state politics, and it was far from certain Tuesday night that despite his defiance, he will be able to withstand the pressure to leave office.
