Local lawmaker pushes for release of Assembly Judiciary Committee’s report on Cuomo
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Republicans aren’t the only ones calling for the release of the New York State Assembly Judiciary Committee’s report we’re also hearing from Democrats that aren’t happy either.
The decision to suspend the impeachment investigation into Gov. Andrew Cuomo was announced Friday.
State Senator Jeremy Cooney (D-NY-56) says he wants the committee to continue its work even if it doesn’t have the authority to pursue impeachment against someone who isn’t in the office.
"I want to be very clear with Rochestarians that I believe resignation is not accountability. There’s a lot of questions that need to be asked, there’s a lot of taxpayer money that’s been spent to try to find out information. We need to have transparency in government, we need to have reports released, and we believe that the governor needs to be held accountable," Senator Jeremy Cooney said.
Cooney added that it’s up to the leadership of the assembly to put survivors and taxpayers first and make sure this never happens in the state again.
