Over 50 NY Democratic County Chairs call for Cuomo’s resignation
NEW YORK, N.Y. (WHEC) — The calls for Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign are growing this weekend.
On Saturday, over 50 New York Democratic County Chairs, including Zach King (Monroe County), John Hurley (Ontario County), Mark Alquist (Wayne County) are calling on Cuomo to resign after NY State Attorney General Letitia James released her office’s report that found that Cuomo sexually harassed multiple current and former state government employees.
Cuomo remained defiant following the investigation’s findings, saying that “the facts are much different than what has been portrayed" and appearing to reject calls to resign.
Cuomo said he did not touch anyone inappropriately, or make inappropriate sexual advances towards several staffers.
On Friday, the attorneys representing Cuomo are claiming that the findings released in a 168-report which detailed credible sexual harassment accusations against Cuomo were done with a "predetermined result in mind."
