Top New York Democrats urge Cuomo to resign over sexual harassment allegations

Mar 08, 2021 14:14 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Two top Democrats in New York’s legislature said on Sunday that sexual harassment allegations against Governor Andrew Cuomo by five women, most of them former aides, and undercounting Covid-19 deaths in nursing homes have undermined his ability to lead and he should resign.
Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins became the first senior Democrat in the state to say the three-term governor should resign.
Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie stopped short of demanding that Cuomo quit, but said in a statement that “it is time for the Governor to seriously consider whether he can effectively meet the needs of the people of New York.”
Meanwhile, in a press conference on Sunday Cuomo said it would be “anti-democratic” for him to step down and that he would not resign.
