Leading New York Democrats Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Jerrold Nadler called on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) to resign in statements issued Friday morning. Nadler, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee released a solo statement that only cited the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against Cuomo while Ocasio-Cortez was joined by Rep. Jamaal Bowman in a joint statement that also mentioned Cuomo’s deadly COVID nursing home scandal.
According to an aide, Cuomo will just be giving one of his Emmy Award winning Covid briefings.
Governor Cuomo denied the allegations of sexual harassment against him and refused to step down.
“I did not do what has been alleged,” Cuomo said. “Period. I won’t speculate about people’s possible motives, but I can tell you, as a former attorney general who has gone through this situation many times, there are often many motivations for making an allegation.”
