Resignation of New York Governor demanded
Staff Reporter, USA: Four more women have accused New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment. So far 7 women have lodged such complaints against him. As a result, the senators have become vocal in demanding his resignation.
Earlier, six women had accused Cuomo of accidentally kissing her and touching sensitive parts of her body. On Friday, a New York woman journalist accused him of sexual harassment. However, the New York governor has denied the allegations. He also refused to resign. According to Cuomo’s political associates Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, Cuomo has “lost the trust” of New Yorkers.
In a statement, Schumer and Gillibrand said, “Cuomo has lost the trust of his political companion and the people of New York after allegations of multiple credible sexual harassment and unwanted behavior surfaced. He should resign as governor. ”
Earlier, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Congressman Jamal Bowman also demanded Kumo’s resignation, saying in a joint statement that the allegations were true. According to them, “he has lost the right to be governor after facing so many allegations.” The same tone was heard in the throat of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. He is a longtime political rival of Cuomo.
Cuomo’s term as governor is coming to an end next year. Last year, he was praised for his skill during the corona virus epidemic in his home state. Governor Cuomo said he was waiting for an impartial investigation into the matter.
In his words, ‘I have not done anything about the allegations that are being made.’ Before the seventh allegation came, he said on Friday, ‘I have never harassed anyone. I did not harass or touch anyone unintentionally. ‘
