The Majority of the NY State Assembly agrees to Impeach Governor Cuomo

More people are calling for Governor Andrew Cuomo’s resignation after an official report released by New York attorney general Letitia James accused him of sexually harassing 11 women, explaining in detail that he verbally and physically harassed women who worked for him. On Tuesday, President Biden joined the group of leaders supporting Cuomo’s resignation. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi agreed, saying “Recognizing his love of New York and the respect for the office he holds, I call upon the Governor to resign.”

Now, Cuomo losing his seat as Governor becomes even more of a reality, as the majority of the NY State Assembly has agreed to start impeachment proceedings. Senator Samra Brouk stated that if Cuomo doesn’t immediately resign, he should be impeached. The Associated Press reports that at least 82 of the assembly’s 150 members publicly or privately agreed that Cuomo should be impeached. 

New York Democratic Party chairperson Jay Jacobs shared that he privately tried to convince Cuomo to resign, saying that he “has lost his ability to govern, both practically and morally,” but Cuomo continues to deny all allegations made towards him, refusing to give up his position as a third-term governor. 

Speaker Carl Heastie said that the assembly would “move expeditiously” to wrap up the impeachment investigation, which began in March. Some want to start the impeachment process as early as this week, as the chamber has been arranging for a possible impeachment for the past few months. Deputy Majority Leader Mike Gianari explained that proceedings could happen in the very near future, saying to AP, “We’ll be ready to go if and when the impeachment articles are sent over.”
