Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer calls for the resignation of Andrew Cuomo

U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi today called for the resignation of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo after New York Attorney General Leticia Jones issued a report saying the governor engaged in sexual harassment against state employees.

“Under Attorney General Letitia James, a comprehensive and independent investigation into the allegations against Governor Cuomo has been completed. As always, I commend the women who came forward to speak their truth,” Pelosi said in a statement. “Recognizing his love of New York and the respect for the office he holds, I call upon the Governor to resign,” she added. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer echoed Pelosi’s call for Cuomo to resign.

“No elected official is above the law. The people of New York deserve better leadership in the governor’s office. We continue to believe that the Governor should resign,” Schumer said.
