US President Joe Biden calls on New York Governor Cuomo to resign after sexual misconduct allegation

 


US President Joe Biden has called on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign, following an official report that said Cuomo sexually harassed 11 women.

“He should resign,” Biden told reporters at the White House.

Asked whether Cuomo should be removed from office if he refuses to resign, Biden said, “I understand the state legislature may decide to impeach, I do not know that for a fact.”

Shortly after Biden’s response, New York State House Speaker Carl Heastie, a Democrat, announced that the chamber would seek to quickly conclude its impeachment inquiry into the governor.

The bombshell report released by New York Attorney General Letitia James's office provided corroborated accounts of alleged harassment by Cuomo that included unwanted groping, kissing, hugging, and inappropriate comments, including claims from one executive assistant who says Cuomo reached under her blouse and grabbed her breast.

The New York attorney general said Cuomo allegedly targeted 11 current and former employees of the state government.

The probe uncovered a "climate of fear" created by Cuomo's alleged behavior, which included unwanted kisses, groping, hugging, and making unacceptable remarks, James said. 

She said the investigation also found that the Democratic governor had retaliated against at least one former employee for complaining about his actions.

At a news conference in Albany, Cuomo denied any wrongdoing, declaring, "I never touched anyone inappropriately." 

"That is just not who I am, and that's not who I have ever been," he added.
