High-Ranking NY Dem Calls On Cuomo to Resign

High-Ranking NY Dem Calls On Cuomo to Resign

(AbsoluteNews.com) – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) is still embroiled in multiple scandals. The Department of Justice (DOJ) is allegedly investigating his handling of nursing home deaths in his state and there are also accusations that he mishandled state resources for personal benefit. Then there are the multiple sexual harassment allegations against him.

The governor is riding on the Hot Mess Express and it doesn’t seem as though he will be hopping off any time soon. That’s why one high-level Democrat wants him out of office.

Time For Him to Go

On Thursday, April 29, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) called on Cuomo to resign from office. He told MSNBC’s Morning Joe that he has been calling on the governor to resign “for months” because it’s next to impossible for him to “continue to lead.” De Blasio pointed to his multiple scandals, saying, “the nursing home scandal, sexual harassment and assault scandal, using his staff to write his book.” He said the scandals just haven’t ended.

The mayor’s comments came just days after Cuomo once again denied ever acting inappropriately toward women. He claimed the New York attorney general’s report will show that, and refused to say he would step down.

The Many Scandals

It’s hard to remember a governor embroiled in so many scandals at one time. Most recently, he was accused of allowing his staff to help write his latest book, a violation of the ethics rules in his state. It also came out that he used government resources to rush COVID-19 tests for his friends and family at a time when the tests were in short supply. Of course, there are the allegations that he covered up how many people really died in nursing homes.

At what point does he just stop putting his constituents through the drama and resign? They deserve better than what they’re receiving, especially while they’re also grappling with the effects of a once-in-a-century pandemic.
