NJ congresswoman who took $40,000 in Cuomo campaign cash clams up on sexual assault allegations


A nearly an entire team of women have now come forward to testify that they had been harassed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, yet a female Democrat congresswoman in New Jersey who took Cuomo’s cash remains silent on the matter.

Mikie Sherrill accepted a major campaign contribution from Governor Cuomo’s PAC. She has also previously accepted several large contributions from Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer, Rodgin Cohen.

“Congresswoman Sherrill talks a good game about #MeToo, but has been short on the action as a culture of harassment surrounds Governor Murphy,” said NJ GOP Chairman Michael Lavery. “Now that Governor Cuomo has admitted to sexually inappropriate comments, and been credibly accused of harassment three times, Sherrill needs to join in the calls for his resignation, and return the campaign funds he’s sent her way. If not, NJ11 will rightly see her words as hollow, and no doubt remember them next fall.”
